Google Checkout Blogs On Recent Promotions

I gave Google Checkout some hassle earlier about promotion they were doing of the service. Earlier this week, I met with them during a visit to Google. The team explained that some of the promotion they’ve been doing is designed to react to consumer demand, to serve Google users that are asking to make it easier to filter shopping results by Google Checkout merchants. Now the Official Google Checkout blog is up with a post discussing this in more detail. The post also talks badges that have been used recently instead of the standard cart icon, as well.

    I love Checkout and use it for several of my clients .

    Whatever Google do to get new custom is cool by me.

    It is so simple and looks great. I’ve always thought PayPal sounded cheap – being a British import it just doesn’t sound good. A little too “East End” for me

    My only moan is I can’t seem to marry my adWords account with Checkout – doubtless it’s me missing something.
