On the other hand, you get some free advertising if you use google.
Account information like what?

It's been a while since Google Checkout was launched and this thread commenced. Does anyone have more up to date feedback on their own experiences? Please

What do you mean about wrecking the tracking?

I actually like Google checkout. Paypal is still good too. I offer both on my site just in case someone has a preference.

I use PayPal Pro. The benfits for me are:

1) Customers do not leave my site
2) PayPal's security rocks (maybe too much so as they suspended my account last week after I made some large cash disbursements to my distributors)
3) I get a 1% cashback bonus on all purchases
4) All funds in my account are invested in a money market earning interest (at last check had a 5.1% 7 day yield)
5) My account is managed in real time.

Downfalls:
• I have heard others complain about their customer service but I have never had an issue.
• Their website and reports generation could be better

I've used Google checkout since I last posted on this thread and it was speedy and easy to use. The only snag (nothing to do with Google checkout or paypal, really) is that using the sellers own system would have created a real-time trace on the goods being delivered) which third parties can't offer.

i stay stick to paypal. that is until google proves it's worth. if it turns out to be better than paypal then it's safe to switch!

I give my customers the option of paypal express or google checkout or using their card directly (which Paypal processes as well, just invis to the customer) and have noticed about 10-15% use google checkout, saving me 10-15% of transaction fees.

I'm hopeful more will use it as time goes on only because it saves me money. I use ultracart as the shopping cart and their GC integration is nice.
