What are the steps to follow to start receiving orders from "Buy on Google" in PrestaShop?
Here are the different configuration steps that will allow you to link your PrestaShop store to our "Merchant Center with Actions" service in order to receive orders placed on Google directly in your PrestaShop back office and process them very simply, in the same way as orders placed on your own site.
