eBay bans Google Checkout

Shortly after its release, eBay banned Google’s new payment solution Google Checkout from being used to make payments for items purchased through their website. The reasoning eBay offered for this move is that a payment service must have a “substantial historical track record of providing safe and reliable financial and/or banking related services.”

eBay did not announce when Google Checkout would be considered an acceptable form of payment. Considering Google’s recent entry into online sales with Google Base and the addition of Google Checkout, it seems as if eBay is now trying to stave off Google as a major competitor.
