Anybody using Google checkout ?

They're currently running introductory discount systems with some online retailers. Just wondering if anybody has tried it yet. I'm thinking about it, but my natural reticence to spread my credit card details any further than absolutely necessary is holding me back.

I haven't seen their introductory discounts to purchasers yet but I have had a look at their site you posted. Their fraud protection policy sounds attractive and would, it appears, provide a second insurance against unauthorised use of a credit/debit card.

Their 'Free transaction processing' notice to retailers however, states "Process sales through Google checkout for free until the end of 2007". Does this signal the end of the introductory discounts?

Just saved £10 off the price of a 300Gb HDD from E-Buyer no probs.

Looking at the list of suppliers using it I'm only interested in ebuyer, so I'll give it a bash if I decide to buy that new graphics card, otherwise no.

I'll leave this open for a while, see if there's any more positive input.

Used it myself on Tuesday to order a stick of RAM from Ebuyer. No problems.

I'd be more inclined to sign up if more sites used it.

I did a couple of searches and only about 1 in 20 sellers offered the option.

Well I've bitten the proverbial bullet and signed up, my first order with ebuyer using the Google checkout system went through as smoothly as ever and a new FX5200 and 256 Mb of RAM have pushed the old boxes sell by date a few more years into the future.

So far so good.
