Google sets tongues wagging with checkout tool

So Google looks to be adding more strings to its ever-expanding bow.

The company has today unveiled Google Checkout, an online payment tool for users.

Available to retailers in the US initially and based pretty much on the Paypal model, users will be able to set up personal account and delivery details.

According to a report on the BBC News website: “Google says it will enable shoppers to set up a single account with all their credit card and delivery details, allowing online merchants to sell through their Google advertising.

“For every dollar they spend on advertising, merchants will get $10 off the cost of processing orders they receive.”

Payment tools.

Integration of Google products.

A burgeoning online travel industry.


Must stop now…
