hi, I'm writing a bitcoin accepting service, I plan to handle all the payments myself, but for comparison, I've checked out a mybitcoin merchant services and their Payment Button. and its super fast. it detects payment a few seconds after it was sent. how is this possible? also, how can they protect themselves from double spending if they accept unconfirmed payments?

thanks

They make up for it by refusing to refund over-payments.
