Pay Pal is mostly for small sellers.
Google Check Out is going after the large and reputable merchants. I would suspect by the end of this year Google check out will be processing millions or more dollars than pay pal will ever process.
Exactly which planet have you been living on for the past year? Google made a big push, signed up a number of "big name" merchants, and subsequently dropped the ball with a much inferior offering. The whiplash from this actually helped PayPal land more "big name" merchants. Currently I'd say that Google Checkout is more for the small time operator who doesn't want to start off with a full-blown merchant solution. There's a reason why Google Checkout is free, it has to do with value.
