I received a notification from Google that I have been accepted to sell items through Google Payments at Google Base. I decided to document the process of accepting payments at Google Base through Google Payments, for the test Google Base product I listed tonight. I will use the extended entry for the remainder of this article, to view the article click here.

Update; Posted Buying and Accepting Payments at Google Base just now.

  1. Sign in to Google Base with the Google Account that you were accepted under.
  2. Post a new item via the "Post your item" section.
  3. Enter the details of the item you are posting.
  4. Towards the bottom of the form, click edit beside the 'Payment' header.
    • If you were accepted to Google Payments you will see;

  5. Check off "Payment through Google", then click OK.
  6. I then clicked publish and was asked to "create an account" to accept payments, this was the screen;
    base-pay-2.gif
  7. part of this form included your bank account information, that you must fill in, eventually, to received payment, it looked like;
    base-pay-3.gif
  8. I then had to verify that my bank information was correct, I didn't want to wait, so I verified the information without the checking to make sure money went into my account from Google. More on this at Google Base Help Center.
  9. After verifying, it took me to a screen that asked me to punch in the amount Google placed in my bank. Now I won't be able to proceed beyond this point until I see the funds in my account (about two days), this is the screen;
    base-pay-9.gif
  10. I also received a screen that said that Google will verify my bank as well, so I need to wait anyway, the screen looks like;
    base-pay-7.gif
  11. I also now see several more options under my "Orders" page including; "Charging... - The buyer's credit card is being charged," "Ready to ship - The buyer's credit card has been charged and the order is ready for shipping," "Completed - You've processed this order fully and sent it to the buyer," "CC failed - The buyer's credit card was refused or did not go through," and "Cancelled - This order has been cancelled."

So now I wait for the funds to transfer to my account, so that I can finish the verification process and see some sort of "Buy Now" button on this page.

I did not try the bulk uploads yet, I assume it works the same way.

Thanks for your Blog. I signed up and uploaded successfully but was not asked for my Bank info. Thanks to your article I can now ask Google why. Al Nelosn
