GBuy's First Potential Customer

Chris Mario, a Damascus, Md., resident, says he "would 100% use Google payments" because he likes the company's technology. He says he uses PayPal now but would prefer using an independent third-party payment service when making some online purchases, as opposed to the PayPal unit of eBay, which runs auction and other e-commerce Web sites.

So, according to Wall Street Journal, GBuy has already one customer: Chris Mario. I'm sure he will be delighted to find out about Google's unspecified rebate.

Chris Mario is the first from the millions of PayPal users that will switch to Google's electronic-payment service.

  3. This has been a long time coming and although I reckon it will take a while for PP users to move to GBuy it will happen. G just makes everything less complicated in my life.


  4. I think Google would be soon Empire of Evil, that controls everything: money, privacy, information field and so on.

    Long Live The Resistance!!!

  5. I use paypal on my websites I don't know if I will use it for Paypal takes way too much in fees. So I'm definately leaning towards googles' checkout.
