Google on Monday rolled out an online payment service that’s designed to accelerate the online checkout process. While the new offering isn’t quite Amazon One-Click, it will eliminate many of the annoying steps that can slow down the online purchase process and often result in abandoned shopping carts.

Instead of a merchant collecting that information from the customer, it’s sent behind the scenes by Google.
