Google Checkout launching in the UK

April 13, 2007

Google is launching it’s Checkout payment solution in the UK at last. It’s been in the US for a while and although it hasn’t taken over from PayPal it is making good headway. This has been partly helped due to the fact that they are not charging fees for merchants at the moment.

It’s an easy to use payment solution which stores your credit card details so you don’t have to retype all the time. It’s also been integrated with Adwords which is a really good move, imagine click to buy from the search results in the future, that could be a really powerful tool for advertisers!

    I know that PayPal fees are terrible so I hope google gives them a run for their money.

    I know brick and mortar merchants have a terrible time with visa and mastercard and their interchange fees.
