    Google Checkout error

    Asked by jamieridler on January 28, 2012 at 01:05 PM

    I keep getting this error from Google Checkout:


    "We encountered an error trying to access your server at https://www.jotform.com/ipns/gco.php -- the error we got is java.io.IOException: Error 'SSL_CERTIFICATE_ERROR' connecting to url 'https://www.jotform.com/ipns/gco.php'."


    This has been happening for a few days now, payments made using the Jotform form on my site are coming through in google checkout, but I am not getting any of the form information, and Google have just sent me the above info about an error messege they are getting.


    Any ideas what this means? I dont know what this all is.

    Thanks.  I'm still receiving.  Here is some more info from google checkout's error email.

    "We've made several unsuccessful attempts to send order notifications to your notification callback URL, https://www.jotform.com/ipns/gco.php As a result, you aren't receiving order status, risk, or other notifications."

    Hope that helps!

    There was a problem with the security certificate. I has been fixed now. Your Google Checkout forms should be working properly now. We are sorry about the problem.
