Why Google gains market share

When I released Jaikoz five years ago (!) Paypal was the sensible way to go for processing payment. A few years later and some potential customers did not want to use Paypal so I added Google Checkout as well, but I didn't have time to fully automate the Google process.

Yesterday I decided to remedy this, the API and documentation for Google Checkout is way better than Paypal. Both are comprehensive and easy to use and I got things working within the day. I went back to the Paypal website to see what they are offering now, there was now a Java API but it achieves the dubious honour of being both limited and totally confusing.

Google also takes a smaller cut than Paypal so if you are buying a Jaikoz license please use the Google method.

So my point is integrating with Google is easier than other solutions, and this is one reason why I think Android will overtake iPhone within the year

Paul please forgive my ignorance, but does google have user accounts similar to paypal that you can set up to pull directly from your account? I'm not familiar at all with paying via google accounts.

I've had Jaikoz now for years and it has been one of the best utilities I've ever used on any computer!
