Alibris Offers Google Checkout to Book, Music, and Movie Shoppers
Innovation investment at the online book, music, and movie marketplace continues with the addition of Google Checkout
Google Checkout provides a centralized checkout experience for online shoppers. Customers can finalize their Alibris shopping experience through Google Checkout, purchasing Alibris items with a single Google Checkout account. Alibris shoppers may also still check out with an Alibris account or use the Alibris “guest checkout” option.
After launching Google Checkout on its retail Web sites, Alibris experienced a strong uptick in sales among shoppers who chose to use Google Checkout. Alibris is confident that this change furthers its ongoing efforts to improve its Web sites by adding features that satisfy consumers and increase sales for independent sellers.
“We are very happy to see book buyers react so quickly and favorably to the addition of Google Checkout to Alibris,” said
The addition of Google Checkout to Alibris is the latest in a series of improvements at the independent online marketplace. Alibris shoppers recently were given additional purchasing flexibility with the addition of PayPal as a payment alternative. And, behind the scenes, Alibris has been making substantial infrastructure improvements to dramatically enhance the experience of searching for items and navigating the Alibris Web sites.
Alibris is the premier online marketplace for independent sellers of new and used books, music, and movies, as well as rare and out-of-print titles. Read more about us.
