Google Checkout Carrier System Allows Customer To Place Order Before Shipping Prices Are Loaded

So I’m giving Google Checkout a try and things are going well until I noticed that one of my customers placed an order and received free shipping when free shipping wasn’t an option. After trying to retrace the customers steps I noticed that before Google loads my shipping data it allows the customer to place an order with no shipping option selected. By default Google gives free shipping. So if a customers places the order before the shipping loads, she gets free shipping. Now I went back and set the “Default price for methods” option but that doesn’t seem to have any effect. I also poked around Google admin panel and didn’t find anything.

Does anyone else experience this problem or no what I’m missing?

Thanks much,
