Also, Google Checkout can now be enabled by your domain administrator from the Google Apps Control Panel at https://www.google.com/a/[your_domain.com] (replace [your_domain.com] with your actual domain name).

It's now quick and easy to add Checkout functionality to your website using various integration options, including Buy Now buttons, custom shopping carts, and the Checkout Store Gadget, which allows you to quickly set up a storefront for buyers in over 140 countries.
