Review: Google Checkout - Free credit card processing!

Update: As of February 1, 2008 Google charges a 2% processing fee plus 20¢ per transaction. Donations to non-profit organizations are still free though!

Google has an amazing product called Google Checkout which allows anyone to easily process credit card transactions.

Google Checkout means totally free credit card processing! All other credit card processing companies withhold a percentage of the amount charged to the card. In addition to that, there are fees per transaction etc.

I personally have used Google Checkout to charge tuition for a camp I ran last summer, and it worked flawlessly.

Why would you use this even if you don’t have a store?

  • Someone owes you money
  • You want to sell something (either online or not)
  • You want to charge for a service (i.e. camp, tutoring etc.)

If someone needs to pay you a sum of money, and cash isn’t the best option, just send them a Google checkout invoice via email. They pay you, using their credit card which they already have on file with Google.

Google will give you the FULL amount.
If you send someone a bill for $100, Google will deposit the full $100 in your bank account! No credit card processing fees at all!

(When they first sign up with Google, they should really do it by buying something which will give them $10.00 off their purchase (might expire Dec. 31, 2007 - Update Jan 1st: still working! ). Buying this 1GB Flash Drive at will be FREE with Google checkout.)

All this will last until February 1, 2008 at which time Google will start charging a 2% processing fee plus 20¢ per transaction.

Miles-obsessed individuals could surely figure a way to get lots of miles out of this…

Click here to sign up for Google Checkout.


If you are a non-profit organization however, Google will allow you to get donations with no fees until 2009!!! So you can put up a Google Checkout button on your site for donations. You will receive the full amount that was donated.

If you are a non-profit, be sure to take advantage of this amazing offer!

Review: Free credit report –

Did you know that you can get your credit report for free? (yes, totally free, without signing up for any promotions!)

You can get your report once a year from each of the three credit reporting agencies, which are Transunion, Equifax and Experian.

You can either get all three of them at the same time, or get one every few months.

Why check your credit report?

When you apply for a credit card or any type of credit (mortgage, telephone etc), the company will first check your credit report to ensure that you will be a customer of good standing. This will help the company determine what line of credit you should get (if any).

You should check your credit reports to make sure it is all correct. You can also make sure that no one stole you’re identity - for real! If you find mistakes, tell the reporting agency to correct it.

Note: This does not get you a free credit score, only your credit report.

Review: Grand Central - Free virtual phone line!

Update: GrandCentral Upgrades To Google Voice!
Update 04/25:
Grand Central currently is not allowing invites. Hopefully its only temporary!, currently in Beta, is an amazing phone tool. And its totally FREE.

It gives you your own local number anywhere in the US which you in turn can forward to any number in the US, along with a whole lot of features.
  • Check your messages by phone, email, or online
  • Keep all your messages online for eternity
  • Forward, download, and add notes to your messages
  • Record and store your phone calls (just like voicemail)
  • Quickly (and secretly) block an annoying caller
  • Click-to-dial from your address book
  • Surprise your callers with a custom voicemail greeting
  • Hear who is calling before you answer the phone.
Why would you want it?

1) If you keep on changing numbers and want to have just one number that you can always be reached on, you don't have to keep on notifying all your contacts of a new number, because you can just make your Grand Central number forward calls to the new number.

2) If you are moving to another state, but keeping your cell phone and original number, and want to have a local number where people can reach you on. Get a Grand Central local number where you live, forward all calls to that number to your cell phone, keep your old phone (and number) and jut tell people your Grand Central number.

3) If you want people to always be able to reach you: if Grand Central usually reaches your home phone and you'll be away for a while, you can make it reach a phone at your destination... or your cell phone while you're en route.

4) If you have a basic landline without Caller ID or voicemail (i.e. you have Lifeline). If you give people the GrandCentral number, it will provide you with those features for free!

5) If your plan doesn't include long distance, you can use Grandcental to call anywhere in the US or Canada.

6) If you have internet on your phone you call Canada for free (just using your regular minutes) using Grand Central Mobile.

7) You can listen in to someone leaving you a message, then decide if you want to answer that call or not.

8)If you answer the phone on your cell phone, you can transfer the call to your landline just by clicking *.

Check out their site for everything it can do.

Make sure to read the review on The Gizmo Project to make this really work for you.

Google claims the basic forwarding service will always be free. What exactly they consider the 'basic' part I am not sure, but for now everything is free.

As of now you need to get invited by another Grand Central user. Post a comment or email me at for an invite.
