So if you are a merchant, you will need to enable your site to be WAP enabled and then integrated Google Checkout mobile.

US and UK Checkout merchants who have mobile-friendly sites can now offer their customers a fast and secure way to shop online while on the go. Existing Google Checkout buyers are now able to make fast, secure purchases on their mobile phones from any WAP-enabled Checkout merchant. The user experience has been adapted for mobile - for example, buyers can verify their identity using a PIN rather than a full password. Checkout for Mobile is currently limited to the sale of physical goods.

Old merchants need to upgrade - free of course. New merchants will automatically be supported.

Are you a mobile buyer and have questions, check out Google Checkout for Mobile help.
