As you may know, for every $1 you spend on AdWords, you can process $10 of Google Checkout sales for free. Just in time for the holidays, we’re giving you even more by processing your Google Checkout sales for free through the end of 2007! Here’s how it works:
From November 8, 2006 through December 31, 2007, we’ll process your Checkout transactions for free, even if you aren’t an AdWords advertiser. If you’re already an AdWords advertiser, we’ll process your Checkout transactions for free regardless of what you spend on AdWords.
Google is ramping up for the whole year in hopes to become a major competitor of eBay’s PayPal. While Checkout is still rather new, their first blog entry only this past June 2006, Paypal has a large lead and Google is doing anything and everything to make worth while their commitment to Google Checkout.
Google is making every effort to become a key player in the merchant processing industry and it almost seems as if they are becoming deparate to make this work.
