Google Checkout now available.... For those of you who have asked and asked and asked.... It's now here.
Some people have read or been told that using Google Checkout on their site shall increase search engine results.
Our research so far has not given us any real indication of that. Also keep in mind that Google Checkout has "terms" that might exclude your site from using it. So make sure you follow all the rules stated.
Also remember, as far as I know, Google isn't a bank. I will include a snippet that will clarify my point:
"Despite all the media attention surrounding alternative payment systems like Google Checkout™, traditional credit card transactions remain the most popular choice among customers for online purchases. According to a recent survey, only 44% of PayPal™ customers and 19% of Google Checkout customers rate their purchase experience as good or very good.*
Alternative payment systems create a middleman between you and your customers, which may hurt your business and confuse your customers. Accepting traditional credit card payments is critical to building a successful business, and all you need is a merchant account and a payment gateway account."
Please provide any feedback you can on Google Checkout -- so that we can share with all our Website Forge community.
