Google Checkout Fees
Google Checkout’s fees are very comparable to other gateways, but we noticed they have graduated fees based on the amount you process with them each month (which PayPal doesn’t offer).
The transaction processing rates you’ll be charged each month will be determined by your sales volume during the prior calendar month. Learn more
|Monthly Sales Through Google Checkout||Fees Per Transaction|
|Less than $3,000||2.9% + $0.30|
|$3,000 – $9,999.99||2.5% + $0.30|
|$10,000 – $99,999.99||2.2% + $0.30|
|$100,000 or more||1.9% + $0.30|
With its proprietary fraud detection technology, Google Checkout works to protect you from unwarranted chargebacks. In cases where you are found liable for a chargeback, you’ll be charged the full amount of the chargeback plus an additional $10 chargeback fee. Learn more about how Google Checkout protects you from fraud with our Chargeback Resolution Policy and Payment Guarantee Policy.
Google Checkout offers you the ability to partially capture funds and explicitly reauthorize an order if the initial 7-day authorization window expires. You will be charged $0.30 each time you charge an order.
