    Well by now everyone should have heard of Google new money service called Google Checkout, if not check it out. it is supposed to be a "paypal killer" and I want to see if it's working. Which would you rather use Google Checkout or PayPal?

    Me too, PayPal is just too popular, it will take a while for GC to catch up.

    I still prefer paypal. But I will definitely try google checkout. Did you know that you'll get a $10 bonus when you sign up on google checkout by February 15, 2007. That's a good deal huh? :D

    Google checkout is only free for this year. After this year they will probably charge a monthly, or gateway fee of somesort. I am still going to try it for my new online company, looks interersting.

    GC is restricted and hasn't spread to all countries. To make a comparison now isn't right, not at this moment at least.

    I am still using Paypal with no intention of switching :) I think GC has to work harder to get more customers :D

    Well, i'll use the one that charge the less per transaction. I don't like paying 4%+ per transaction at the moment. If Google is cheaper and offer good services, i'll leave paypal or use it less...
