Apparently there is the same offer (as in the US until the end of 2007) of free processing on a 10:1 spend ratio for AdWords customers.
U.K. Google Checkout merchants must have a U.K. bank account and address, plus the following:
A valid credit card.
A valid company VAT registration number
checkout come to Poland!
I know businesses who've had bad experiences with particular acquiring banks and if bank X is behind Google Checkout then these businesses aren't interested, but if it's Google all the way then they would be interested.
Anyone with a Google Checkout account care to shed some light on this?
We're excited to tell you that as of this morning, the speed, security and convenience of Google Checkout are available to online shops and shoppers in the United Kingdom.
In the United States, thousands of sellers and millions of buyers have already taken advantage of this exciting new checkout process. Now, shops in the UK can offer Google Checkout to their customers and benefit from increased sales, higher conversion rates, and lower transaction processing costs. From now until 2008, merchants that offer Checkout in the UK will receive free transaction processing for all of their Checkout sales. And just so buyers don't feel left out, we're giving them £10 off all orders over £30.

The only thing that troubles me is that they say that they are registered as an e-money provider. That means that the credit card companies can treat purchases as if they are cash advances and charge cardholders accordingly. As G can afford better lawyers than Nochex it will be interesting to see if this is applied consistently.
Something that I think is really putting buyers off is that it states "Shipping and Tax calculated on next page"; whereas the current page is asking for your credit card details!
Ok, you are not committed to the transaction at that stage, but it certainly looks as if you are without being sure of the total order value!
