Maybe I missed it above, but for me a big factor is trust. I have no problems giving my credit card number to Amazon, and know from past experience if there is any problem with a seller, Amazon will refund my money and cancel the order.

I'll refuse to buy games from indies who use payment services I've never heard of, or ones I've heard of but have reservations over (like paypal). However much I may want a game, I'll pass it up if I'm not completely certain the pay system is legit.

That sense of trust is one significant advantage for the big-name portals.

Hammer, anvil, forge and fire,
chase away the hoofed liar.
Roof and doorway, block and beam,
chase the Trickster from our dream.
