Fair enough :)

I think GBuy will just be an upgrade of Google Purchases which also links into AdWords

While purchases.google.com is redirecting, this link is valid: https://purchases.google.com/termsOfService?type=Buyer

Is it part of an existing service? It's dated January of this year.

There are many links out there that are live:

http://purchases.google.com/support/
http://www.google.com/support/purchases/bin/request.py
http://purchases.google.com/files/buyerprivacy.html
http://purchases.google.com/files/sellerprivacy.html
http://purchases.google.com/files/privacy.html

There are also some links that are published on the Support pages but are not live yet.

David: Why do you think so? I see logical Purchases – that´s actually the only one domain where you can find some content.

Niraj Sanghvi > that link is online since many days, I have already seen that when they launched Picasaweb, where you can buy for more space ;-)

not, it's not google but "Google Payment Corp." who is concerned.

Theses screenshoots are EXACTLY the same that I sayed few days ago, about Picasaweb
> http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/upgradeStorage
when I click on "buy" (Some of you don't see that button) I got that :
https://purchases.google.com/buy?o=shoppingcart&shoppingcart=717602389899347&gsessionid=k1Yr6AlKn_U

So, nothing new in fact...

<<What can I buy with my Google Account?

With your Google Account, you can make convenient, secure purchases from:

   * Google Base
   * Google Earth
   * The Google Store
   * Google Video
   * Picasa Web Albums >>

what about Froogle?! :/

This just came though my Google Reader Google blog feed – the link to the blog entry is below, and doesn't resolve. Looks like someone got trigger happy :)
