Giving people a say in something is often a good way to get them involved, and Google wants folks to use its Checkout service.  The search giant has, as a result, offered users the chance to select as many as three fresh upgrades.

A form called "Suggest a feature for Google Checkout" gets straight to the point with its list of ideas.  Some of them aren’t that great – we say "meh" to multiple shipping addresses.  Others might open a number of new doors; take, for example, the ability to choose different currencies for the "Buy Now" buttons.Google Checkout Gives Users The Vote

But if you’re prepared to naysay all the existing suggestions, Google also provides a write-your-own box, and as evidence that some of the suggestions will be implemented, a list of six that already have been is on display.

It’s hard to say what sort of gains this approach might generate; when Google Checkout extended its fee-free status through the end of this month, it may have won over most fence-sitters.  Still, now that the money-making holiday season has passed, businesses may feel able to experiment a little.

Meanwhile, PayPal has made inroads with a UK corporation called CyberSource.
