The e-commerce.

Can not contact google checkout


Recommended Posts

The following question was probably answered but I can not find any.

I have the following configuration.


Enable GoogleCheckout Module

Accepts payments through Google Checkout on your site


.htaccess Basic Authentication Mode with PHP over CGI?

This configuration will disable PHP Basic Authentication in the responsehandler.php to validate Google Checkout messages.

If setted True you MUST configure your .htaccess files here.



Merchant ID


Merchant Key


Select Mode of Operation

Select either the Developer's Sandbox or live Production environment


Select Merchant Calculation Mode of Operation

Merchant calculation URL for Sandbox environment. (Checkout production environment always requires HTTPS.)



MultiSocket Shipping Quotes Retrieval

This configuration will enable a multisocket feature to parallelize Shipping Providers quotes. This should reduce the time this call take and avoid GC Merchant Calculation TimeOut. More Info.(Alfa)



Default Values for Real Time Shipping Rates

Default values for real time rates in case the webservice call fails.

Ground Shipping

Next Business Day Economy

Outside US Rate

Two Business Day Economy


Google Analytics Id

Do you want to integrate the module with Google Analytics? Add your GA Id (UA-XXXXXX-X), NONE to disable.

More info here



Sort order of display.

Sort order of display. Lowest is displayed first.



Continue shopping URL.

Specify the page customers will be directed to if they choose to continue shopping after checkout.



On my shopping cart page I can see the goggle checkout which is not dimmed (colored).

When I click on the google icon, the browser contacts google server and then our web site (I can see it in the status bar) but it will not go to google site, it stays on our site.

I have tried this with the .htaccess Basic Authentication ON and OFF, with the same result.

I have tried to use “Buy Now Button” – which will go to the google site but will not update the order list on our site when the credit card and the order is placed.


Do I have to set deferent Values for Real Time Shipping Rates?

Also can some one explain “Authentication Mode with PHP over CGI”.

If you have a server with php this option should be ON ?

If you are using cgi this option should be ON ?


Regards yos
