Back in January of 2010, I asked Where’s Our google Checkout? The Great White North has been ignored by google since it launched their payment processing service, and based upon the lack of response to the questions from various Canadian sellers, I’d suggest that it won’t be coming to the land of beer and hockey anytime soon. At the risk of being repetitive, the fact of the matter is that Canada is a good market with a strong economy; what is the holdup to a Canadian google Checkout launch?
Ah well, at least we still have PayPal. (Whose executives do know the benefits of not ignoring Canadian consumers.) And, to quote Samuel Beckett, “Better hope deferred than none.”
