Google Checkout is a payment system that allows buyers and merchants to complete transactions without exposing financial information. Much like its bigger competitor PayPal, Google Checkout is primarily for Internet transactions. Each Google Checkout account is associated with a Google account. To delete the Checkout account completely, you have to delete the associated Google account.

Tips and warnings
- If you would prefer to keep your Google account, yet do not want to use Google Checkout anymore, delete the payment information instead. This will effectively disable your Google Checkout account.
- Deleting your Google account will delete all information associated with it, except for Google Alerts, Google Groups and Google Docs. Do not delete your Google account unless you no longer need access to the information associated with it.
