I wonder how long it will take for Google to start moving in on Amazon.com
Just one more step. Telling merchants that they should (have to) offer G Checkout for their trusted site (again more money for G) of course under the guise of more security/assurance for the merchant vs. the customer as G keeps an eye on the payment and they have the same as outside merchants selling on Amazon.
All that's left for the merchants is to pay G a number of fees and do the hard work, inventory, chargebacks, shipping, customer complaints etc. while G sits back, relaxes and cashes in.
