Hello everyone,
after reading scary stories about PayPal and being annoyed with PayPal's tricks and the power they have because of their "monopoly", I was wondering if Google Checkout might be a better option. What's its pro's and con's you can share with all of us?
Thank you.

I've only ever used Google Checkout as a buyer, not as a seller (have not figured out how to do this yet) and have found it to be hassle-free. In fact as a buyer, I am more likely to buy from someone that offers google checkout as a payment option (for as long as seller is reputable etc)
Of course with google checkout you don't get the benefit of Paypal protection, but you do have credit card protection.
