The introduction of Google Checkout certainly helped the bottom lines for many retailers including our own retail websites with their zero fee merchant processing. The latest news is that Google is extending their no fee policy throughout 2007 and they have started giving a $10 instant rebate on all first purchases for new Google Checkout users.
PortableChangingRoom.com is now approaching 2000 hits since we started it in June and sales have been continuing to be steady since. We are quite happy with the progress this new site has made so far. Ebay buy it now auctions have been very successful in the last month. We have completed several auctions so far with each auction doing better than the last.
Google just launched their payment system which some have compared to Ebay’s Paypal service. When I first heard about Google Checkout launching I decided to setup an account and test it out. I added the Google Checkout button to the order pages on PortableChangingRoom.com and today I just received my first order through the system.
