Google Checkout checks out


Not just Google

In the past week, I've seen multiple outages while trying to pay online inside the UK:

Trying to pay for my pizza order at Pizza Hut: unknown error (as in "can't talk to the payment system") - they don't use Google

Trying to top-up my SIM: connection timeout - they don't use Google either

Trying to draw petrol out of a Tesco Pay@Pump petrol station - I'm quite sure they don't use Google :)

It feels more like a UK banking thing than a Google thing, and Google is just playing along. You didn't see an HSBC banner on that 404 page by any chance, did you? :)
