Default Google Checkout Open for Business

I've signed up. It was pretty easy. I'm waiting for my account to be verified. I like the idea of having sales deposited directly into an account instead of with Paypal (who I use currently).

I'm also a big fan of the lower fees (2% and $.20 per transaction) instead of Paypal's 1.9-2.9% (based on sales volume) and $.30 per transaction.

To boot, for every $1 spent in Adwords, you get $10 of free sales processing. It's no reason to blow your Adwords budget, but it's still nice.

In reading further it seems that you need an API solution to be able to automatically deliver downloadable goods to the customer. I haven't done any digging on 3rd-party support that may be available to do this. I do not want to have to log in daily and "charge" the orders, then manually send the download information to the customers.

I'm sure those issues will be resolved soon enough. Just watch the blogs and newsgroups.

Thanks for the heads up on this new service. It wasn't on my radar at all and I do try to keep up.

Well, well.......this is the first I've heard of Google's new offer.

I'll stay with Paypal for a while for now. They're so easy to use!!
