Google Checkout

Google,Online Retail,Technology

Well, Google is finally rolling out its own ecommerce solution… sort of, it is more PayPal-esque than anything else. What they are offering is a place to store your purchasing information that will simplify online transactions. So how does it work? It seems really simple (I have signed up, but not purchased anything yet), but I am only going off what I have read so far.

First, you setup an account with Google Checkout, then you search through Google for what you are wanting to purchase, you will see a shopping cart icon next to results that allow Google Checkout to be used. When you locate items you would like to purchase, just add them to your cart as your normally do, then when it is time to checkout, their will be a Google Checkout Button. Click the button and then the magic happens.

I have been waiting for this to come out for awhile now, so naturally, as soon as I saw it I signed up. The only problem is, I don’t have anything to buy yet. As soon as I buy something, I will let you know how the process worked and if it is worth the time, but seriously, it’s Google, it has to be worth the time… right?
