    Google Checkout

    Hi,
    Has everybody try google checkout yet ? I'm trying to register, but I can't change my country to M'sia. Maybe still only accept ppl within US only.

    This is the reply when I ask question to their support team. Not bad for google to reply support .


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    At this time, only merchants with a United States address and bank account
    can integrate and process transactions through Google Checkout. We look
    forward to making the service more widely available in the near future.

    Sincerely,

    Jeff
    The Google Checkout Team

    I hope their 'near future' isn't far away :P

    Anyway, Google Checkout is not the PayPal killer that we all been hoping for, isn't it?

    Hi, Google Checkout is exactly the PayPal Killer. If they succeed, you will find Paypal losing market shares. It's for sure.

    That's why Ebay banned Google Checkout, and Paypal refused to be included as an "option" in Google Checkout. It's a strategic move and they want to protect their own golden goose - Paypal.

    I don't know. But I think Google Checkout works in the complete different way PayPal does.

    PayPal makes it an ease to transfer money from one account to another, for everybody (international wise).

    Google Checkout is simply providing a paying option for the merchants (especially adwords advertisers).

    There might be some clash because PayPal do have some market stake on the merchant part, but no big deal. They are still the one and only internet money transfer medium.

    Well, I think paypal seems good alternative at this juncture though Google Checkout is open for US merchants only, and even their merchants can not deal out of US as the buyer should be american only. It might be suitable for their advertisers hopefully.
