My main Google account is based on my enterprise gmail account, i.e. I have a domain that is pointed to the gmail servers but my email is not @gmail.com.

I set this account up with Google Checkout, but the Android Marketplace on my DX won't recognize the account for purchases.

I realize that the enterprise accounts have some limitations compared to a straight up gmail account, but if Checkout can be assigned to this type of account, then why won't the Marketplace/phone recognize it.

I REALLY don't want to have to create some dummy gmail account just to buy apps!

Any help would be appreciated!

I noticed the same problem, and had to use a personal (@gmail) account to do Google Checkout. Would love to see Checkout support Google for domains.

That is a crock!

I have less functionality on this account AFTER I "upgraded" it.

Why can't they get this to work on the phone?

Wow!

They weren't even close.

In my response I questioned whether they had even read my email.

Geez!

It's an autoreply to weed out those that haven't performed basic troubleshooting.

Sorry for hijacking this thread, but is anyone else having problems with Google Checkout today? I can't seem to purchase anything. It just gives me an error.

By the way, the error says...

"Google Error Request Entity Too Large

Your client issued a request that was too large."
