Basically go to https// and setup your account.

When you are going to pay you click Google Checkout instead of the regular checkout. It works just like PayPal checkouts really. It withdraws the money from whatever payment method you provided and ships it to whatever address you give. The advantage is that you keep all of your receipts in one spot and you don't have to create a new account for every random site you want to buy 1 thing from. You can also hide your email from the site and Google will proxy any emails sent to you so you stay off their mailing lists. Thats about it...

Also the seller accounts have no fees until the end of the year. And you can just send invoices to peoples emails.
