    Here is what you do once you have setup your Googlecheckout + purchased your cartmanager account to use it with EBAY:

    Please contact me via PM for the best deal on cartmanager. I am an authorized reseller and will get credit when you sign up. I can get you a free 14 day trial as well.

    Google checkout requires you to enter your "Google Merchant ID" and your "Google Merchant Key".

    You can get these from Google here:
    1. Login to Sign in - Google Accounts
    2. Click on "My Account" in the top right
    3. Choose "Checkout" from the "My services" area. If you do not see "Checkout" as an option then click here to sign up Online Shopping Carts - Google Wallet
    4. Click on "Settings"
    5. Click on "Integration"
    6. On this page you will see the "Google Merchant ID" and the "Google Merchant Key". You will also need to enter the following URL in the "API callback URL" space:
    Forbidden Document
    Make sure the "Callback method" on the Google integration page is set to "XML" and you're ready to go.
    To enter your "Merchant Key" and "Merchant ID" into the shopping cart:
    1. https:/
    2. Cart Settings
    3. Payment/Gateway Settings
    4. Click off all the credit cards on the left, Visa, Master Card, Novus/Discover, American Express, and also on the right side, Show Visa Icon, Show Master Card Icon, Show Novus Icon, Show American Express Icon.
    5. Check the transaction type "Google Checkout"
    6. Check the transaction type "By Credit Card with Real-Time Processing (OnlineOrder)"
    7. Enter the "Merchant ID" and "Merchant Key" into the spaces provided
    8. Save
    Merchant Calculation Defaults:
    This default shipping charge is used if Google is unable to receive shipping charges from the shopping cart within a three second time frame. You should enter something into this box as well.

    I also suggest making your invoices mobile friendly:
    -Under the above, Cart Settings, go to Color / Layout Settings.
    Scroll down to the bottom area, “Template,” and under the heading “Mobile Devices,” use the pulldown menu to set the cart to
    Then, Save.

    1. Login to cartmanager with your assigned cart username and password.
    2. Connect the cart to your gateway account by going to the section called "Cart Settings", and the subsection, "Payment/Gateway Settings" and doing the following:
    a. Select your gateway. (see above)
    b. Enter the requested gateway information. (see above)
    3. Go to the �Extra Features� section of the cart, and then click on the link, "eBay Auctions". This is located in the left-side menu.
    4. Click on �eBay sign in�. This will take you to the eBay website.
    5. Login to eBay.
    6. Click �Agree and Continue�. It will display a page explaining when to update the authorization.
    7. Click on �Click Here to continue�.
    8. On this page you are given three options.
    a. The typical merchant will list all of their products directly into eBay, or use a listing tool like �Turbo Lister� or �Auctiva�. If this describes you, click on the top option.
    b. You also have the option to list auctions to eBay through the cart tool �Inventory Control�. If you want to be able to use both, click on the middle option.
    c. If you do not want to list directly in eBay and want to list through the cart exclusively, click on the bottom option.
    9. Default Shipping Settings or Inventory Control.
    i. If you chose option (a) or (b) in step 8, you will now be able to set up some default shipping and handling settings. These settings will only be used if you do not have shipping set up in the auction. You can set up a flat fee using �Handling Charge�, and/or allow the cart to calculate a shipping amount by entering an �Item Weight�, and a �Ship Method�. Your cart is now ready to be used to take payment for your auctions. The following steps are only for those that wish to use the Shopping Cart Inventory Control tool to list auctions to eBay.

    ii. If you chose option (c) in step 8, you can now add auction items to the cart�s "Inventory Control" tool. Click on �eBay Auctions� in the left menu.
    10. Select �Add A New Product - Using Cart Inventory Control�.
    11. Enter the auction item information and click �Save�.
    12. When complete, you will click on, �Search/Edit An Existing Product" within the cart and a list of all entered items will appear.
    13. Select the item(s) to add to eBay by clicking �eBay� in the same column as the item to be formatted and sent to auction.
    14. Now these items can be completely described and transmitted to eBay for auction without having to switch back and forth between the cart and

    If you charge sales tax, go to item 5. Tax Settings on cartmanager
    1. Use the pull down menu to select your state.
    2. Enter the sales tax rate into the box.
    3. Click one of the Basic Tax Options - whether to calculate tax before shipping costs, on rush order charge, etc.
    4. Use pull down menu to select whether sales tax is charged depending on shipping address, billing address or your (merchant's) address.

    If you ship worldwide, you must enter different shipping methods to correspond to the methods you allow in your EBAY auctions (USPS, USPS international, UPS, FEDEX, etc.)

    In order to enable the "world-area" feature of Google with CartManager you must

    1) login to cartmanager
    2) cart settings
    3) step 6 shipping options
    4) approved shipping methods
    5) approve your shipping methods

    Add every form of shipping method to the right side that you might implement in your shipping. This is important, because if these are missing, the system won't know to charge the different amounts you charge by tier to different customers based on their locations.

    Connect the cart to your gateway account

    When you say "Connect the cart to your gateway account" and then select gateway, what do you mean by this? I have google checkout and cartmanager now, and want to use cartmanager for ebay. I did all the steps mentioned but can't figure out the select gateway part.

    What is this gateway account? Which one is best for ebay? Can I just manually invoice through googlecheckout for the ebay auctions?

      You'll have to use either cartmanager or manually invoice your buyers. This is actually a major issue because you may NOT use Google Checkout with Ebay. If Ebay finds out you are using Google Checkout they will suspend you.

      You can hire me for a tech support on learning exactly how to use Google Checkout with Ebay, if not clear from this thread.
