Back to school offers from PayPal and Google

Both PayPal and Google Checkout have announced promotional programs this shopping season luring customers to spend their hard earned cash at the stores partnering with each of these two programs.

This comes as a part of the bigger plan for each of these companies (eBay and Google) to gain a market share in the online payments niche.

All offers require you to pay using the appropriate payment system (Paypal or Google Checkout) and most of them expire sometimes in early September, 2007.

Yahoo! partner with PayPal, launch promotion

No one can claim that PayPal is not taking Google Checkout seriously. They countered Google Checkout $10 off $30 signup bonus with a $25 rebate which Google then answered with another $10 promotion.

Last year PayPal ramped up the offensive by signing up a partnership with Yahoo!. Today come the first fruits in a form of yet another promotion, this time for business owners.

PC World reports that online merchants who advertise with Yahoo! and offer PayPal’s Express Checkout will be getting a special icon on their Yahoo! ads, similar to the one you can see on Google ads for some time now. In addition, new sign ups are offered $100 Yahoo! Sponsored Search credit and free Express Checkout processing until the end of 2007.

If you run an online business and have not used Yahoo! Sponsored Search before, this might be a good chance to give it a try. The newly redesigned search platform (codename Panama) seems to be getting good reviews. Note however that the free PayPal checkout processing pretty much matches what Google currently offers with their own checkout service.

Google Checkout $10 signup bonus

Google keeps pouring money into their Checkout service hoping to make a dent in the leading position that PayPal currently holds. The new promotion is a one time use and applies to new customers only.

Sign up to Google Checkout before February 15, 2007 and receive $10 bonus after your first purchase of $10 or more (before shipping & tax) from participating stores. Offer expires March 31, 2007.

If you still have not signed up to Google Checkout this might be a good chance to do so as more and more merchants start accepting it. Besides there is nothing to lose — it is free.

PayPal to offer $20 rebates starting November 23

Reuters reports that PayPal is planning to start offering $20 rebates and free shipping to customers using the service via thousands of on-line stores in North America.

…millions of PayPal customers will be eligible to receive cash rebate offers up to $20 when paying with PayPal from Nov. 23 through May 15, 2007.

The promotion includes such well known brands as Barnes-n-Noble, Dell, Starbucks,, The Sharper Image, 1-800-Flowers, PetSmart and partially HP.

The news probably comes as an attempt by PayPal to fight the Google Checkout gaining popularity with their $10 off $30 deal.
