Using Google Checkout on your Etsy shop

Google Checkout is another option you can give your customers as a means of payment. Right now Google Checkout is available in the US and the UK

The transaction fees for Google Checkout is lower than what Paypal is charging

Right now Paypal charges 1.9% to 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction and Google Checkout is 2% + $0.20 per transaction.

How to set up your Etsy store to accept Google Checkout

First click on ‘Your Etsy’

Under ‘shop setup’ click payment methods

Then check ‘other’

*Let customers know that you accept Google Checkout by putting it in your shop announcements or in your ‘shop policies’. Be sure to let the customer know that they will have to wait for you to send them an invoice.

Sending the customer an invoice from Google Checkout
