Long time, no post – busy time with Christmas and New years. I went to Mahia Beach on the east coast of New Zealand, amazing place – I was lucky enough to swim with a wild dolphin named Moko, he stole someones boogie board too!
Anyway, to more nerdy subject matter, I recently upgraded our Magento webstore to version 188.8.131.52 – it was relatively painless except for one major hiccup. There seems to be a bug with the configuration scopes in the new version of Magento that means the HTTPS URL is not propagating to the webstore from the default configuration scope.
The problem manifests itself as your Google Checkout merchant calculated shipping callback failing (and subsequently using the default amount). There is a message in the Google checkout integration console:
URL you are using for merchant calculations is not valid or is not https http://www.yourdomain.com/googlecheckout/api/ — the error we got is: An HTTPS URL is required.

able to find it: result: address-id: XXXXXX"
The problem was that the XML response Magento was sending back had the correct calculations for each shipping method that was available but it didn’t include the shipping methods that were not available for the address. These are required according to the Google Checkout XML API Docs.
