Google Checkout Australia Coming Soon?

Is Google Checkout coming to Australia? It appears that Google registered Google Payment Australia PTY. LTD. in Australia recently, which could be a sign of that.

A reader pointed me to the Australian Securities & Investments Commission web site that shows a record for a Google Australia payments company. On January 4th of this year, Google seemed to have applied for the registration of the new company. The record also shows these past actions:

  • 07/11/2006: 410A Application For Reservation of a Name of a New Australian Company
  • 04/01/2007: 201C Application For Registration as a Proprietary Company
  • 12/02/2007: 384 Notification of Resol. By Directors of a Small Pty Company Controlled By a Foreign Coy Which Is Not Part of Large Group

So is Google Checkout coming to Australia soon?

We know buyers can currently order from Australian shipping addresses.
