Google Checkout - Free processing until 2008

Google recently made a significant move for sellers - their Google Checkout product is free until 2008. This move is on the heals of them offering free processing for the holidays unitl 2007.

What does this mean for marketplace sellers? Well if you're selling on eBay exclusively, it's not going to mean much to you given the fact that eBay banned the use of Google Checkout. If you're selling elsewhere, it means about 3% of your sales can stay in your pocket instead of going to PayPal. Even when Google Checkout starts charging again, their transaction fees are about a point lower than PayPal's. So, it seems to be a good time to give Google Checkout a try.
