Google announced that Checkout will be discontinued.
"Merchants can continue to accept payments using Google Checkout until November 20, 2013."

Upgrading Nice Google Button

IMPORTANT: Starting with version 1.11 for Joomla 1.6 - 2.5 (filename: Joomla_1.6-2.5_nicegooglebtn_v1.11.zip), you no longer need to uninstall your previous version of the extension before upgrading. Simply install the extension using Joomla's native installer and your installation of the extension will automatically be upgraded. As a precaution, you still need to make a backup of your site's files and database before upgrading. Other than backing up, no special steps are required to upgrade your site.

Getting Started with Nice Google Button

1. If you don't already have one, get a Google Checkout account now.

2. Install the plugin using Joomla's Extension Manager.

3. Go to Extensions>>Plugin Manager and click into the plugin “System – Nice Google Checkout.”

4. Go to Admin>>Extensions>>Plugin Manager>>System - Nice Google Button and enable the Nice Google Button plugin.

5. Add your Google Checkout Merchant Id to the parameters on the right.

6. Optionally add your sandbox sellers Merchant Id if you plan to do testing.

7. Optionally set the test mode to “on” or “off” - default is false.

8. Designate your preferred currency by entering either USD or GBP – default is USD.

9. Optionally set an amount for free shipping.

10. Save your changes.

11. Add the button tag code, example {nicegooglebtn:Joomla Backpack|19.95|Nylon backpack with Joomla logo.|1|8.25;Priority Mail|8.25;CA} to your article where you want the Google Checkout “Buy Now” button to show up. When the article is published and viewed from the site's front-end the tag will be replaced by a Google Checkout Buy Now button.

Tag Usage & Syntax

Usage is simple. Create a new Joomla article and add your desired content to it. Wherever you want a Google Checkout “Buy Now” button to appear include this tag {nicegooglebtn:Joomla Coffee Mug|12.50|10 oz. coffee mug printed with the Joomla logo|1}. To leave a parameter field blank simply use a double pipe, "||".

Tag Syntax {nicegooglebtn:item name|price|item description|quantity|shipping price;method name|tax rate;tax state|custom button}

For Example

{nicegooglebtn:Joomla Coffee Mug|12.50|10 oz. coffee mug printed with the Joomla logo|2|4.50;USPS Priority|.0875;CA|images/custom-button.jpg}
