No more Google Checkout

10 Sep

Google Checkout has decided to follow PayPal footsteps and have introduced a strict ‘NO ADULT CONTENT OR ELSE‘ policy.
How do I know this? In the last 2 weeks I have had 4 emails from sellers confirm that theirs accounts have been frozen.

Although this term of use has always been part of Google’s Conditions of Use:

Unacceptable product categories

Pornography and other sexually suggestive materials (including literature, imagery and other media); escort or dating services; novelties and toys

it had never been officially enforced, but they are now freezing accounts of sellers who use Google payments for adult and fetish oriented items including used panties

Personally I have always found Google Checkout T&C extremely confusing, when I visited their sellers terms of use page I could find absolutely nothing that said one should not sell adult content.
When I visited their Policies  GuideLines
I could find absolutely nothing that said one should not sell adult content.

But I guess the prove is in the pudding, if you use Google Checkout  to sell your used panties or any other fetish related item, they will freeze your account, just like Paypal does.
