This was Google's holiday logo in 1999
In a bid that is sure to raise the interests of many e-tailers, Google has announced that it will be providing free merchant services for the holiday season. Say what?! Yes, FREE.

For those of you who are not familiar with transacting online suffice it to say that this promotion could save participating e-tailers hundreds if not thousands of dollars this holiday season.

Here is the press release
and if you have any interest in this product I expect it will be worth any headache involved in the transfer… after all I don’t expect anything Google is going to disappear anytime soon; they have a wee bit of a nest egg to work from. 😉

Warning Fellow Non-US Citizens – Don’t Get Excited

Us Canucks may be neighbors but as usual that doesn’t count for much at Google Headquarters. Google Checkout is not available to any non-American.
