If you're an e-commerce merchant paying a lot of money to a merchant account provider, Google Checkout could save you a lot of money, especially if you're already a Google advertising client. Google Checkout is e-business software that offers a web-based order processing system similar to Paypal. But unlike Paypal, it integrates with Google AdWords, has basic fees (2 percent plus 20 cents per transaction) that are dropped for AdWords advertisers, integrates with popular shopping carts, and even offers a public API for developers. Even if you don't want to move to Google, it should give you better ammunition to demand a better ecommerce automation solution from your own ecommerce provider.
