Got an email from Google Compliance Officer telling me to remove all mention of google checkout button on our donation page because their terms of service forbid accepting donations unless you are a registered charitable organization.  whatever, good riddance, never liked it anyway smiley

Compliance Officers are close cousins to tax inspectors and parking enforcement practitioners    thumb down
That said, I'm pleased to see Google's presence here diminished.

the one thing i should say in google's defense is that i guess you could make the case that they dont want people to be making "donations" and then assuming they are tax deductible.

the thing that upsets me about google checkout though which makes it really unfriendly to sites like ours is that you cant let the user choose how much to give, as you can with amazon and paypal.

for me, paypal is still the clear best choice.
