If it is like Ad-sense, it will be a micropayment vehicle.

Maybe, but htpp://google.com is easier than google.google

Some of the Googleland top-level domains...

www.search.google
www.mail.google
www.community.google
www.books.google

... nah, don't like that :)

Hey men
test that :
picasaweb.google.com/lh/upgrad ... , press the button "buy", and look the URL ;-)

Have you ever seen that?

Do you mean the purchases.google.com domain?

Yep – that's been around for a while now.

Yes but all what I tried on this subdomain redirected me to my account page or to an error page until now.
It's the first time that I can access to Google Checkout

doesn't matter, just go to purchases.google.com to see what he was talking about

purchases.google.com redirects me to Google Accounts.. :/

and again, i see no 'buy' button (at Google Accounts either)

aww, for me it gives a purchase history and option to change my shipping address or review the seller(s) (there's only one) from which I bought. hmm. where are you? i bet the buy button only shows up for people inside the US since technically you have to be in the US to buy the extra space. It's not really a big deal, just indication that purchases is now functional and being used for something besides the google store, google video and google base.

i live in Israel.. maybe thats the reason :/
damn it, i really wanna try it!

I'm French, I live in France, and I see the "Buy now" button (at home or at school, I see the same)
"More photos means more sharing!
$25 gets you around 25,000 photos for one year."
And when I press the button, I see the Google Checkout page
But what says Caleb doesn't works for me : when I go on purchases.google.com, I'm redirected to my Google account page.

mhmh , the "purchase" domain is te same used from the google store
if you add to cart an article, the "chekout" button point to the same style-page of the link above

(ex: googlestore.com/viewcart.asp)

i don't think is related to "GBUY"
