    PHP Google Checkout API Integration...

    The google checkout API looks ridiculously complex.

    Does anyone know which version is best to use to validate the sale XML or the other method?

    In addition if anyone is interested in helping me get out of this mess and program a simple buy now button -> verify sale script (for Google Checkout & Linkpoint Merchant).

    I'll pay $250 via PayPal.

    Thanks,

    P.S. If not please answer question so I can take a bash

    If I understand your question (and not entirely sure I do - been pouring over dozens of pages of incomprehensible documentation all day and my eyes are crossing), then my recommendation would be to use the sale XML because it's the only method that you can "sign" and thus ensure came from your server. This makes the transaction more secure against someone pretending to submit one as you, as well as preventing users doing things like modifying your prices in your form.

    I intend to be tackling Google Checkout integration in the near future, but not ready for it just yet. I'd suggest buckling down and reading through the documentation at least twice (it's some of the most well-written documentation I've had the pleasure of reading) before starting, and referring back to it at every step of the way.

    Good luck!

    Thanks Kromey,

    I was hoping it would be the other one as it looks easier.

    It is easier, and I'd bet you wouldn't have a single problem with it 99% of the time. That 1%, though, could leave you up you-know-what creek!
