  1. I love new options for checkout, so upon seeing this I immediately looked into what Google is offering. From what I can tell, they are using Google Pay here (also known as Google Wallet, formerly Google Checkout), and so Google will require the merchant to have their own payment processor. The advantage that Amazon still holds is that a merchant can sign up and use Amazon Pay without having to have their own merchant account and payment gateway.

    That’s not a very high bar for any but the smallest sellers, but still, Amazon’s checkout offering will still hold the edge with the little guys. Best to add them both, as I intend to do!
