Selling on Blogger with Google Buy Now buttons

A Buy Now button is an image you display near items on your website to allow buyers to purchase these items from you. When buyers click the Buy Now button, they'll immediately proceed to the purchase process without having to view a shopping cart summary first. After buyers confirm their purchases, orders will be displayed in the Google Checkout Merchant Center for you to process. You'll also receive an email from Google Checkout notifying you of new orders.

Buy Now buttons allow you to sell single items at a time; if you're planning to allow buyers to purchase multiple items at the same time, you may be interested in the Google Checkout Shopping Cart or the store gadget.

Adding Buy Now buttons to your site

Sign in to Google Checkout.
Click the Tools tab.
Click Buy Now buttons.
Follow the instructions in our button creation wizard in your account.
Click Create button code.
Click any part of the code snippet to highlight the entire code snippet.
Click Copy to clipboard.
Paste the code snippet in your website HTML near each item on your site you'd like to sell using Google Checkout.

You can test your button code by clicking a Buy Now button on your website to initiate a purchase. (You won't be charged unless you click 'Place your order now.')

Processing orders

Once you update your website's HTML with the Buy Now code, you can start accepting orders and processing them through Google Checkout immediately. Because Buy Now buttons remain on your website until you edit your website's HTML to remove them, please be sure to remove the button code from your site if you are unable to fulfill additional orders.

Orders placed via Buy Now buttons don't require digital signature authentication. As always, please review your orders before processing them.

Digital goods will be processed using pessimistic Key/URL delivery.

Editing Buy Now buttons

If you'd like to change an existing Google Checkout Buy Now button, you have two options:

Create a new Buy Now button in the Google Checkout Merchant Center. (See 'Adding Buy Now buttons to your site' above.)

Edit your existing Buy Now button HTML code directly on your website. Remember, if you're using a website editing application, you'll need to use the 'Code' view and not the 'Design' view when changing the Buy Now button code on your website.
Button policies

You may not alter the appearance or functionality of Buy Now buttons in any way. For additional details about button requirements, please review our program policies.

Buy Now button transactions cannot exceed $10,000. High transaction amounts may also involve greater scrutiny to help ensure a safe and secure shopping environment for buyers and sellers.
