    Hello erni2,

    As far as I know Google Checkout allows multiple countries if you are just a buyer. However if you plan to sell something or plan to be a merchant, you can only do that if you are based in US or UK or atleast that's what people I know of are saying.

    If why you have to be in US or in UK to sell something, it is unclear why Google operates only on those countries. They are new to payment business so it could be one thing and Paypal is like already a senior in the business. I hope it helps you
