Beat me to it!
I was just this morning trying to wrap my head around the email I received.

Argh.  :( I liked Google Checkout. And Google is getting rid of iGoogle homepages in November, too, which I *really* liked.  ??? Obviously they have a game plan I am not "getting".

They also just announced the closing of their entire affiliate network. I lost Krause Books at least temporarily which is a decent earner for me.

Wow.  :-( Did Google get bought by eBay? Pooping on their sellers is a trademark move...  ::)

When I say I was wrapping my head around this...that was one of the things I definitely don't get.
iGoogle pages was already on the way out and wondering what their next step will be.

Remember Google stating this:

I received a reminder e-mail notice today on this as I am sure some of you did "Google Checkout will be shut down on November 20, 2013." I get a lot of orders, especially international, that uses
GC.  I am NOT impressed with the three choices they gave us: Braintree, Shopify, Fresh Books.  Which one are some of you choosing? My sales are picking up a little now and hope to grow more by the end of the year and I am going into Amazon as soon as I get back from vacation. So, I need to make some good choices on my payments.

I've got no advice for you, Betty.
I haven't dealt with Shopify, Braintree or Fresh Books.

I'm attempting to get a shop up at Shopenvy.
Wonder if they are going to be included with the above.

I stumbled across wepay.com as a possible alternative, but I don't know anything about them. No idea if they're reliable, legit, etc.
