Which online payment service?

There are 3 online payment services out there that many websites use to receive payments, namely Paypal, Amazon Payment Service and Google Checkout.  APS came to the scene later than Paypal but was ahead in providing APIs that other developers can easily integrate with.

Instead of reinventing the wheel and redoing the comparative analysis that others have done so well, here are a few links to the good work already published on the web:
