GlitterSniffer Cosmetics and Google Checkout Followup

GlitterSniffer Cosmetics has been using Google Checkout to process their payments since January when the company was refused access to and use of their Paypal accounts after an investigation. Recently there have been claims filed against GS via Google Checkout for nonreceipt of items.

Several claims have been successful, with GC refunding after a 5 day wait time and no response to the claims by the company.  The process for GC was to file the claim and wait 5 days for a response. According to an email received by a claimant that 5 day waiting period is no longer necessary.

The email from Google Checkout, edited only to remove the recipients identifying information:
Subject: Re: [redacted] I need a refund. I never received my order.
From: Google Checkout <>
To: redacted

 A wonderful development for the claimants, but also a business affecting change for GS.

As per this email, confirmed by Google Checkout, GlitterSniffer Cosmetics may no longer process payments via this method. At this time Google Checkout is still listed at the payment processor on the GS Artfire, though the only thing listed is $1 Samples.

Thank you to the recipient for sharing. More information as it becomes available.
