Interesting Speculation about Amazon and PayPal

Don't have much time to write a long post, before I head out to dinner, but I was checking some of my favorite sources and came across this article over at Barron's Tech Trader Blog: Is Amazon Planning To Go Head-to-Head With PayPal?

What do you think? If this turns out to be true, right when eBay is pressing their advantage with PayPal all over the world. They certainly couldn't make a case that Amazon Payments wasn't safe.

It will be interesting to follow this story and see if it has any legs. Let me know what you think.

What case do they have that Google Checkout is not safe? Saying something does not make it so.

It looks like the stumbling block in Australia is going to be PayPals refusal to adopt the EFT code of conduct. It would be interesting to hear why PayPal has chosen to be the only one not to sign, out of 69 institutions in Australia 68 signed.
