eBay bans use of Google Checkout

Posted on Thursday, Jul 06 2006 @ 22:29 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
eBay silently announced that it doesn't allow the use of Google's Checkout online payment service on its website.
Sellers and stores operating on eBay are banned from using Checkout, and if found will consequently result in such possible actions as loss of PowerSeller status, loss of certain account privileges and even account suspension.

According to eBay, Google Checkout has not been a tried and true online payment service for an extended period of time. Reports recently surfaced on eBay's new policy change and eBay's stance on Google Checkout remains firm. The online auction giant has not released word on whether or not this will remain a permanent ban or a temporary one.
