Can I use other Payment Methods like Google Checkout?

Hi guys,

another question. How could I integrate other payment options than paypal?
many people over here in germany do not trust paypal at all, so something else would be much more appreciated, i guess.

    Hey there.

    It's all in the FAQ of Appointments+ (the integration stuff)

    Basically MarketPress is a commerce cart to sell products.

    Appointments+ has this integration so you can add shortcodes to a product. Then you can use MarketPress gateways to book an appointment as a product.

    Admin --> Appointments+ --> Settings --> FAQ [TAB]

    Here is the info:

    How does integration with MarketPress work? Are there any special considerations?
    If you select Integrate with MarketPress which is visible after Payment Required is set as Yes, any MarketPress product page having Appointments+ shortcodes will be regarded as an "Appointment Product Page". Those pages are automatically modified and you are not supposed to be doing anything special. For your information, here is how the integration works:
    An Appointment will be regarded as a digital product, therefore shipping information is not asked if ordered alone.
    Like any other digital product, quantity of an appointment is always fixed to 1, but client can add as many appointments as he wishes with different variations, that is, with different date and time.
    Download link that is normally added to confirmation email for digital product orders is removed.
    Appointments in the cart are shown as "Appointment Product Page Title: Appointment ID (Appointment date and time)".
    "Add to Cart" and "Buy Now" buttons on the Appointment Product page are not visible until client confirms the appointment.
    "Add to Cart" and "Buy Now" buttons are only possible for a full appointment product page, therefore on products list page, an Appointments+ product will always have a "Choose Option" button. No price will be shown. For the same reason, please use Single Product shortcode with only content="full" setting.
    Paypal button of Appointments+ is invisible and thus its own Paypal Standard Payments option is disabled. Client will use the payment gateways MarketPress is providing. You can use all MarketPress payment gateways.
    Quantity and Variation fields on the product page are always invisible.
    Price of the appointment on the cart is the deposit price, if a deposit field is set. Otherwise it is the full price.
    If an appointment product is manually removed from the cart by the client, its record will also be removed from the appointments table.
    An appointment product can be automatically removed from the cart if "Disable pending appointments after" setting is set and client does not finalize the purchase during that time. Thus you may consider to add a warning note that transaction should be completed within the selected time.
    If this happens while client is paying and client does pay, however, that appointment will be taken out from removed status and it will be marked as paid.
    On the admin product management page if it is an Appointments+ Product, variations, SKU, price column fields will display "-".
    Transactions are shown in MarketPress, but related appointment record is updated, that is, status is changed to "paid".

    Hope this helps.

    Take care.
