Google Checkout

The company the Google , has received international recognition for the development of IT-technologies, it has decided to expand its capabilities and offered Internet users a new electronic payment system. The creators of the payment system wanted to make the online payment process easier. And they succeeded. The user enters his payment information only 1 time during the first financial transaction. The system "remembers" the payers details, and when paying for the purchase again, the client will provide only the recipients payment information.
American currency and British pounds sterling are the official currency of the payment service.

Google Checkout features

The basis of Google Checkout is incorporated technology in which Google accepts payment from its users. Now, the companys specialists have significantly expanded the possibilities of payment by developing several services that allow bringing service to a qualitatively new level. Owners of online stores are tied to the account, registered in the Google Checkout is , your shopping site. Buyers prefer this payment method. And there are several reasons for this: • a minimum of time is spent on the transaction: you need to enter the e-wallet and make just 1 click to transfer funds; • money will be transferred to the stores account instantly;

• the payers details (card number) are hidden from prying eyes: the seller sees only the amount that comes to his account.
The way Google Checkout works is significantly different from that offered by other EPSs. Here the procedures for issuing an e-invoice and replenishing its balance have been abolished: payments are made directly from a bank card that is linked to a user account. The service works with payment instruments MasterCard , American Express , VISA , Discover . The cards of these systems are accepted all over the world. Virtual payment documents will also work. When shopping in online stores, the user does not pay commission fees - this mission rests with the seller. Google Checkout is a convenient online payment platform for goods and services. Payment order clients cannot receive money transfers from third-party users - the services capabilities do not allow this. Users can purchase goods at e-auctions, in regular online stores, transfer funds to the accounts of gaming and entertainment sites, and pay for the services of Internet organizations.  



By registering with Google , a person provides a minimum of information about himself. To access Google Checkout , you will need to add data such as state and address of residence, as well as correct payment card details. The profile is registered and the system will no longer require any information from the user. Payment data is kept in the strictest confidence: third parties will not be able to find out either the payers surname or his credit card number. Having selected a product on the shopping site, and deciding to pay for the purchase through Google Checkout , the client automatically goes to the payment site. To access your account, you must enter your login information. The user does not need to do anything else - the service will perform further work related to transferring funds to the stores account on its own.

Are Google Checkout payments secure ?

Users dont need to worry about their financial security. The developers of the service took care of this, equipping it with a reliable security system. Additional factors guarantee safety.
1. Payment information of users is not available to third parties.
2. Google is the intermediary between buyer and seller. Payment transactions are carried out according to the following scheme: an online store requests payment from a payment service. Google makes a payment and only then withdraws money from the users card account. This scheme of work effectively prevents the actions of attackers looking for "easy money".
3. Clients of the payment system can view the ratings of sellers and understand whether it is worth contacting a particular store. The system monitors both the movement of money and the order. The success of the transaction will be reported by e-mail, which will be sent to the postal service.
4. Security is also ensured by the latest technologies, for example, a system for automatically detecting unauthorized financial transactions. A special service is notified of the precedent, whose employees will identify fraudsters and prevent their actions.
5. Customers have the right to refuse transactions. The terms of the cooperation agreement provide for the rules governing the refund. Based on these requirements, users can revoke the transaction. To do this, you should submit a request to the administration of the payment. The application will be considered by a special commission.
Analysts talk about Google Checkout as a reliable and secure service.

Account replenishment and finance withdrawal

The peculiarity of this service is that there are no e-wallets. This means that users do not need to fund their account. The funds are kept on the clients bank card. The money required to carry out a financial transaction is withdrawn directly from the card account. When registering an account with Google Checkout , the user should link a payment document to it.

What to do if I lost my Google Checkout login information ?

To authenticate in the system, the account owner must enter his e-mail address and password. It happens that the user has forgotten the password, which means that he will not be able to get into his personal account. However, you should not worry about this: the code can be restored.
