Update on new Express Checkout

March 16th, 2008

We took the Express Checkout off some account Dashboards. You can still use the Express Checkout if you setup a custom Dashboard.

We got a lot of positive response, but as it turned out it was a source of confusion for a number of people. So we are working on a clearer more usable version of the feature and hope to have it back out to everyone soon.

Thank you all for your patience and your comments to our customer service staff. We want to make sure everybody can get the most out of our service, and the express checkout is something that we have had many people ask for.
