(PRWEB) June 30, 2006 -- With the number of online purchases increasing every day, shoppers now have a new option for checkout out online. Google Checkout, the latest development from Google, provides a safe, secure checkout process for online sales. MonsterCommerce, a Network Solutions company, is pleased to be among the first e-commerce providers in the industry to adopt Google's latest technology.
Since the company's inception, customer security has been a primary focus of MonsterCommerce. They recently became fully accredited to meet Visa's Cardholder Information Security Program standards and regulations. This, combined with the new Google Checkout technology, will provide safe and secure transactions for customers who shop at stores powered by MonsterCommerce.
In addition to this added security, Google Checkout also provides added convenience to online shopping. Customers will no longer need to reference their credit card each time they make a purchase. Contact and billing information, as well as credit card numbers, are stored securely in customers' Google Checkout accounts.
Once customers have created their user account, complete with payment and contact information, they are free to shop the web at stores that offer Google Checkout.
Once they have finished shopping, customers arrive at the virtual checkout. Google Checkout will appear as an option, and when selected, customers will be prompted for their user name and password to approve the purchase. The records of all transactions will be accessible through their Google Checkout user account, no matter where they shop online.
All stores that use MonsterCommerce's shopping cart have the opportunity to offer Google Checkout. MonsterCommerce clients who elect to offer Google Checkout as a checkout option will benefit from the Google Checkout badge. This icon appears in the Google AdWords ads of stores that offer Google Checkout, making it easy for shoppers to locate participating stores.
Abandoned shopping carts and a poor conversion rate are common concerns for online store owners. The ease of [GBuy increases the likelihood that transactions will be completed successfully. A determining factor for this improvement is the convenience of shopping securely without credit card in hand.
