Google Checkout Blog

Open for Business

Thursday, June 29, 2006

Welcome to the Google Checkout blog for sellers! Here you will see updates and news about this new checkout option that makes online shopping faster, more convenient and more secure. If you have an online store, customers who visit your site can use Checkout to buy from you with a single username and password. And once they do, you can use Google Checkout to charge their credit cards, process their orders, and deposit funds in your bank account.

One of the things that sets Google Checkout apart is that it’s integrated with Google AdWords to make it easy for you to attract new customers, increase sales, and process sales for free when you advertise with Google. And if you don’t advertise with us, no worries: you can still offer your customers a fast checkout option and take advantage of our flat 2 percent and $0.20 per transaction processing fee.

To learn more, visit or watch this video about selling with Google Checkout (which you can also watch below). We hope you'll put Checkout to work for you and join merchants like Jockey, Timberland, Starbucks Store, Dick's Sporting Goods, Zales, GNC, Tweeter, Dockers, and many more. Happy selling.
