    It won't surprise anyone if we conclude that Google checkout and other payment modes wants a big slice of PayPal's cake. :smile:

    Exactly. Also the fact PayPal has good brand recognition even with non-tech savvy people that it would be trusted with more customers.

    I vote for PayPal too. I believe that Google Checkout is good and reliable, considering that it is owned by Google, but I think PayPal is much more widely acceptable than GC.

    Having Paypal instead of Google Checkout will probably increase your sales. More people have accounts with Paypal and, therefore, it's easy for them to use. You need to consider the amount of your transactions and what you'll pay for fees based on percentage of the sale.

    I've heard of people losing money with both Google Checkout and Paypal. With either Paypal or Google Checkout, I believe that they hold a percentage of what you earn until a certain amount of time passes to allow for chargebacks. They may both do that, but I've read that one of them does though I don't remember which one. Once it is in your account, it's probably not a good idea to let it sit there too long.

    I choose Paypal too. A lot of people are familiar and comfortable with it. If I saw that I had to use Google checkout to purchase something, I would probably think twice about doing it just because I have never used it before and don't know much about it.

    Paypal. Been around longer, owned by eBay and therefore integrates seamlessly with it. Easy to use, safe etc.

    Although considering the horror stories I don't think I'd be happy to leave money sitting around in my Paypal account for long.......

    Paypal or Google Checkout?

    For those who have used Paypal and Google Checkout, I was wondering how they compared and why you switched. Would you recommend one over the other for an affiliate or a merchant?
