    I think its the obvious next move. paypal will have a serious competitor. ebay will be the next one to be affected.

    If they do it better than PayPal and make it so I can easily integrate it into my website so I can sell stuff, I'm all over it.

    If not, it's too late and PayPal already has this market sewn up. Even a corporation as large as Google would have to be pretty innovative to topple a giant already established in a specific market place.

    Is for google to go for the corporate market.
    Too many people are in tune with paypal and know what it is.
    And don't think that paypal will just roll over and play dead.
    They will stay number one by doing what they do best, easily facilitate payments between people.

    I hope Google has better security. :) PayPal doesn't seem to realize that its providing a virtual service with real money, and because they don't realize that, they don't cover buyers who buy virtual items and services with real money. Yet, PayPal themselves are providing a virtual service!!!

    Please, I hope Google will be smart. :)

    I think Google's strategy is that they want to become "everything to everybody". In other words, they want it to become so that everything you need to do on the web should involve Google in some way.

    I dont think it would be very hard for google to say "flat fee of $0.10" per transaction.

    That would mean paypal either cut their fees or they lose 50% of the webmasters currently using them.

    I can't wait for them to pull this out, although i think it may affect their relationship with ebay possibly since ebay is Google's biggest advertiser.

    I hate paypal so much.
    Nothing would make me feel better than watching paypal die a slow death.
