No doubt if you've stumbled upon this blog post you've probably got an email from Google suggesting that you fix a bunch of Mobile Usability Issues. Long story short - you should.

I guess if you've stumbled upon this post it means that you're having some trouble with the Shopig checkout or add to cart process and you're seeing this errorRequired parameter missing or invalid: idGenerally this error can show for a few different reasons:You're trying the checkout to the wrong addressYou're trying to add to cart, but again - to the wrong addressYou're trying to add to cart and you've not got a form element with a product IDIn all cases check your code and make sure that no only are you posting to the correct address but you're also sending along the required data as well.

I am sure MasterPass is a wonderful thing, full of awesome security and other such goodness. Full credit to the team on that front.
