Google Shopping Express May Rival Amazon and eBay
Search giant Google will soon enter the online business turf with its own Google Shopping Express e-commerce platform and will compete against the likes of Amazon and eBay, according to a report.
The report claim that Google's Shopping Express platform will be a subscription-based service that will allow consumers to have goods delivered to their home on the same day that they purchase them online.
The same report mentioned that the search giant will partner with local retailers like Target to supply the goods and Google will provide the logistical support and Internet purchasing interface to carry out and complete the order process.
Google's Shopping Express would offer unlimited deliveries for an annual fee of $69, or $10 cheaper than Amazon's Prime membership fee, according to the report.
Google seems to be preparing for an e-commerce battle with Amazon and eBay for quite sometime as the company also bought business startups' Channel Intelligence and Bufferbox to perhaps beefed up its business offerings and expand their teams working on the company's shopping projects.
With a slew of Google services like Google Wallet, Google Maps, and the possible addition of Google Shopping Express, maybe Google is now also gearing up for its own primetime very soon in the e-commerce business niche.
