  1. Hello! I've followed the instructions in the readme.html included with the google_checkout_1_2_3_4.zip but it doesn't seem to work. One point of confusion is that the readme says: But my install has a </td> on the end of that line. I've tried every variation I could think of from removing the /td completely to moving it above and below the code snippet for the button, but nothing works (as in, no google button ever appears, but my install still works fine). Any hints? Thanks! -Chad

    Not having used the code [yet] I would think that you may have improper permissions, or are missing a file. What happens if you: ls -lh /home/txcampin/public_html/googlecheckout/error.log If the file doesn't exist you could: touch /home/txcampin/public_html/googlecheckout/error.log -Chad

    Yeah, but it's down from the original price of $250 I think. I don't know how much programmers charge/make but as a Pharmacy Technician-by-day I make around $1700-$1900/month. At $250 a pop, 8 downloads would have been more than enough IMHO to make this thing free. Making money is certainly necessary in our lives, and if your 'job' is a programmer, you certainly should charge for software. But a plugin that allows checkout via GoogleCheckout should be priced a little more 'fair'. If it indeed took you 8 weeks to program this addon, then charge a fair price, let those willing to 'download early' do so and pay for it. But 6 months? Assuming you got a few takers at 250, and several more at 150, you are probably far over a $4000 mark that I think is fair for 8 weeks of programming service (assuming you spent 5 days/week 8 hours/day). Obviously I'm not a programmer, nor do I pretend to be. But I do value both your time as well as your choice to charge what you want. But, who makes more money; the person selling 1 thing for a million dollars, or a person selling a million and 1 things for $1? Assuming an exhaustible resource, it's nearly equal right. However, in this case, you have the potential to make *far* more than the person selling 1 thing for a million bucks. I'd have purchased this thing when you first offered it had it been somewhere in the ballpark of 15-25 USD. For 250, 150 or even $90 I think you are raping those who can purchase, and screwing yourself from potential business from those who cannot (or will not where the case may be) purchase your plugin at your (IMHO uber-inflated) prices. -Chad

    Indeed! As this is an alternative to paypal, I welcome it with open arms. Some of us aren't 'big' enough per se to have a full on merchant account, so Paypal and similar systems are our only viable options. Google hopping in on it is an excellent thing for me. -Chad
