In May, Google announced to its merchant partners that it would be retiring Checkout. Google Checkout was designed as a platform for online payments, but as a competitor to PayPal it wasn’t getting enough traction. The company’s plan is to merge Checkout into Google Wallet. The idea always has been for Wallet to be – via Android – a replacement, well, for your physical wallet.

My negative trust rating is reflective of a personal vendetta by someone on default trust.

Credit cards have become so ubiquitous, it is hard to get people to change a habit.  Particularly if they don't see an immediate benefit but do see an immediate hassle to setting it up.
