    The poster is right, too bad they had to take it down.

    I think it is funny that google partnered with citibank for the free money if you use your citibank card to fund the account. Anyone remember c2it? Don't worry if you don't, the web doesn't. And that was the massive power of citibank versus ebay.

    Good overview of why product search shoppers will flock to Google Checkout http://www.powersellerking.com/2006/..._checkout.html

    I see Channeladvisor and Volusion.com cart/ecatalog companies have integrated Google Checkout into their choice of payment plans. Without full cart integration no way will Google Checkout work for apparel or other merchants who have to allow size-color options to every purchase. PayPal sucks for the same reason if not fully integrated into the cart application, as any oscommerce player knows. The G-Checkout "Buy It Now" button works only for a single no option item purchase. Forget multiple items on the same checkout order using this simple button code.

    If Google becomes a CPC -CPA -CPM network they will have learned something from digesting my Safe Haven Network model. The sharpees there know the #1 Trust building rule from digesting my SHN model. He who controls the shopping cart checkout controls the honesty and integrety of the network. No doubt the Google ecommerce team worked hard on Phase I release of Google-Checkout marrying Adwords to confirmed ROI checkout conversion stats. Phase II will involve probably buying Volusion and turning it into the ultimate affiliate enabled Multi-Merchant single session shopping engine for Google base, Froogle and AOL's contracted private shopping engine.
