Google takes aim at PayPal
Internet giant extends free use of online payment service through 2007.
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Google is offering merchants free use of its online payment service, the Internet search giant's latest move to gain share from eBay's PayPal service.
The free processing promotion was set to expire at the end of this year.
Mountain View, Calif.-based Google, which rolled out its checkout program in June, has been trying to drum up support of its service with incentive programs.
Last month, it began offering customers $10 off a $30 purchase for transactions made via Google Checkout.
