Thanks merchants for rating Google Checkout #1

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

We’re gratified to see the results of the first annual AuctionBytes Sellers Choice Awards for Online Payments with Google Checkout rated at the top! Google Checkout was voted the easiest to use payment service for online sellers for, among other things, its fee structure, dispute resolution process and minimal account holds.

We have put a lot of effort into developing a smooth selling process with Google Checkout, but we hear you that popularity with buyers could be higher. Therefore, we’re committed to continuing to get the word out about Checkout and improving the buyer experience. Last year delivered an impressive increase in the number of Checkout customers through Google services such as Android Market, Google eBooks and the Chrome Web Store as well as through Checkout merchants’ promotions.

Merchant feedback through surveys like this and directly to our team are important and help us build a better product for buyers and sellers. As always, please keep the feedback coming in our merchant forums.

Thanks again to the merchants who participated in the survey. If you’re not currently a Google Checkout merchant and would like to give it a try, please sign up at
