    Google checkout

    I've seen:

    1) Paypal (with recurring monthly payments)
    2) Credit cards (2checkout with recurring)


    Are any of you using Google checkout for client payments?

    I just learned that it doesn't have recurring payment options yet -

    Too bad since there are no fee until Dec 31, 2007.

    I've been playing with it, its missing the recurring thing as mentioned, plus, it doesn't let you put in your own code on the thank you page so you can't track where the sales came from....

    really sucks but hopefully they add those features soon to make it usable. Its good for web development billing though. Easy to send an invoice from.
    Like passive recurring revenue you can retire on?

    Yes I am starting to think they put it out early to get publicity for the Christmas online shipping season coming up.

    Still Google seems to like to add features incrementally and hopefully these features will come up.

    The only real problem is that I hope you don't have to have a google account to make a purchace. I hope all you need is a credit card number like 2checkout and not like paypal.

    I'm staying far away from G's Checkout. Have heard numerous folks complaining about the same problems now (payments not recorded and the like). PayPal just plain works, so I'm sticking with it.

    Really no fees till December '07? That could save thousands.

    ....that's right, it would have saved thousands, if the architecture wasn't so screwed up. As it is, businesses are having to spend hundreds of dollars per case to haggle with Google over errors. Not worth it, just not worth it....

    There is a nice presentation here:

    https://checkout.google.com/seller/why.html

    If you have 2000 accounts at $15 each per month you are shelling out $1000/month in fees alone.

    I'd prefer to charge every 2 months or 3 months But that may not be too attractive to the customer.

    Does anyone do it that way?
