Cant find a direct link where it states this, but if you open an account it is right at the top of the page.

*Note this is sort of a duplicate to the ebuyer deal.

Massive list of merchants involved far far to many to list.

I think we'll leave this post though, as it is for many merchants and not just ebuyer. The other post is dedicated to ebuyer.

Note: Google Checkout does NOT support Visa Electron cards

Do you think that's going to stop people? I'll just add a little note at the bottom of my sales saying to contact me about other methods of payment or something like that. I'll split the difference with them.

About time someone kicks Paypal's butt.
Bring on Google Auctions next.
#17
I think all sellers should just defy the rules and and start accepting this payment method. I think it's fair to say that many big ebayers frequent this website and MSE quite regularly :whistling: So if this thread (and the equivalent one on MSE) gets noticed then ebay could have a hard time pulling thousands of listings ;-)

Also, it may be worth giving buyers a dsicount or something until Google Checkout becomes widley known - and take away the risk factor from the buyers.

I agree, as a business seller on ebay i find i 'have' to take paypal, and 95 percent of all my sales are paid through paypal, i hate paypal with a vengeance so really hoping this google checkout takes off!

Yes, but I think there's no sellers protection policy unless you pay with PayPal.
#20
Are there 2 versions of google checkout - one for professional sellers and one for your everyday joe who wants to accept a payment?

HERE it says you need to have a vat registration number - Excuse my ignorance :)

Edit the above link was for the uk FAQ and mentioned you need a VAT registration number. Now the link is directing to the US faq and so is not relevant.

Why has the pages suddenly started directing for incorrect countrys?

Yes, but if you're not accepting paypal in the 1st place....then there's no need for it :thumbsup: As long as Google don't go down the same route a paypal and side with buyers 99% of the time then I reckon this new scheme will 100% benefit sellers.
#22
I offer Nochex, Cheques, BACS, and Postal Orders on my ebay auctions with big discounts for using these, but nobody is interested. BACS is used about once a week. Ebayers are 'programmed' to use only Paypal, they have been 'brain washed' into believing it's the 'safest' payment option.
Google has no chance in hell of competing with Paypal on ebay.

You do realise "Google" is THE single biggest brand on the world wide web? Anything endorsed by google is going to take off. It's just a matter of exposure to the right people now - the sellers. Google somehow needs to target ebay sellers, so that they start accepting this payment....and the no fee til end of the year business is a sure sign that they're on the ball :giggle:

Google advertise ebay items and get well paid for doing that.
Ebay own paypal.
Are Google really going to jeopardise their advertising revenue by trying to 'convert' ebay/ers?

I think you've hit the nail on the head there. PayPal is so successful through buyer power, not what the sellers want. People actually want to use PayPal. NoChex is unquestionably safer for the sellers, but unless people are prepared to pay using NoChex in the first place then it's a waste of time. Google need to target the buyers as well as the sellers and I think the only way that is going to happen is with a rival to Ebay. That however will take time to establish itself.

Ebay benefit from the Google advertising just as much as Google do. I'm sure Google wouldn't lose too much sleep if Ebay withdrew their advertising.

I wonder why Ebay ban most online payments, but not NoChex?
#27
Personally I like using PayPal - it's only a personal account, so I don't get any fees charged (apart from if I was to sell something and someone decided to pay with a card instead, and you only get 2 allowed per year), but I usually only bother to use it to buy stuff anyway.

Exactly.
There's no reason for the average buyer to dislike using PayPal.

I know Eddie at AuctionChex.com, who offered a service for ebay and ebayers. At one point he was permitted to offer his service on ebay, then it was removed. He's registered with the FSA.

I read last year that a system similar to CHAPS will be introduced this year. It will offer same day transfers and will be free. About time too, BACS is so slow, and CHAPS is so expensive (even though it only costs teh banks a few pence they charge you £20-£30). Will have to check this is still in the pipeline, if so both Paypal and Goodle Checkout will stuggle...

Not surprising really... eBay own P***Pot. Sorry, PayPal!

Is the £10 off £30 for every purchase at the moment, or just a one off use?

Off every purchase. So great if you want to buy stuff at a low price like a bunch of CDs, not so great a deal on more expensive stuff though.

I was going to use ask that as well, as there's many merchants on the available list but it sounds like it's for new accounts with Google Checkout making there first payment.

Ebay bans Google Checkout story

There should be Oftbay or something lol so they are regulated, Ebay aren't allowing fair competition.
#36
Does it have to be a credit card you register with google checkout or can it be a visa debit card for a current account?

#38
Is there a list of UK retailers? I can't find one. The current list seems to be US sites. ebuyer aren't listed at all that I can see, even though they are clearly taking payments with this.

It's on the first page of this thread.

Altough when my friend clicks it from his PC, it somehow redirects him to the US list, but the UK list shows up fine for me.

EDIT - that link above also takes me to the UK site.

Okay, I'm being redirected to the US list! Thanks.
