Google Checkout Update

Well, it's pretty easy if you are in two scenarios. One is if you're doing a purchase of a single item. The other is if you use some commercial shopping cart system and just want to add it as a payment option. Unfortunately they expect shopping cart orders to come over in a big lump - you can't do what I'm doing now which is to add a bunch of add to cart buttons and they'll maintain the cart for you.

On the plus side they handle coupons and multiple shipping options, which would let me remove my "international shipping upgrade" kludge.

Anyway, to support it I'd have to switch to a commercial shopping cart system. My hosting account actually supports this, but it's probably more than I want to deal with at the moment. Which is a shame, because if they just allowed something parallel to what PayPal allowed I could have it up and running tonight.
