    Marketplace = Google checkout. Used by thousands of sites and millions of users worldwide.

    So, yes you're being paranoid, esp. if you think Paypal (100% owned by eBay) is 100% foolproof :D

    Yep, the market place is actually google checkout, not managed at all by app developers so your details are as safe as they can be, the devs don't see any of that stuff.

    So how do you set that up please?

    Is it done before you try to buy an app, with the purchase then asking for credentials instead of credit card details?
