Who its for:

This payment option allows customers to choose to pay with their Google checkout account instead of using their credit card through your merchant account payment option. Customers can use their Google checkout account to complete their purchase and do not have to have their credit card present.

This option MUST be used WITH another merchant account because it requires the customer to have a Google checkout account (customers without a Google checkout account will not be able to buy from your store if you dont not have an additional payment gateway setup). They will not be able to pay with a credit card so your store must have another option turned on to accept credit cards.
