Possible Paypal Competitor from Google?


Eagle eyed  people who watch who registers what domains have noticed that Google have registered (via a proxy) googlecheckout.net.

Some commentators think this may be an indication that this may be Googles version of paypal

“I think it will be a shopping cart system to help websites accept payment for their items on line.  The money site owners make will be deposited into a holding account at Google — just like ad sense works.”

I think that this is a plausible and could give website owners an extra way of integrating payment into their sites and if it linked up with ad sense, froogal and google base could almost provide a full online shop.
