Google Checkout was launched, they have an API so I can integrate it into packages like osCommerce or custom eCommerce sites. Should be much easier and cleaner than using PayPal IPN. Their fee structure is very attractive too. $.20 + 2%.
I was worried about the non-refundable $.20, coz if I were to write a OSC contrib I would be testing it quite a bit and they do add up. But you can actually use a “sandbox” account, not bad…

Google Checkout sounds like it could really make things easier for website owners that engage in e-commerce. I’m just wondering what the actual experience will be like. I’m sure there will be a couple of unanticipated problems somewhere along the line.
