Google is testing a delivery service
Reuters reported that the global search leader is testing a same-day delivery service. Strange as it may sound, Google may be entering the business of product delivery to compete with companies like Amazon and eBay.
The same-day delivery service Google Shopping Express which Google has been testing on its employees for a couple of months was recently opened up for the residents of San Francisco and nearby areas. Shoppers can subscribe for the service which will be free for the coming six months, and later will be offered for fees which have not been disclosed.
At the moment the same-day delivery service works with a few retailers including Target, American Eagle and Toys R Us. According to the product management director Tom Fallows, Google Shopping Express is “a local delivery service that we hope will make it possible for you to get the items you order online the same day, and at a low cost”.
According to Reuters, Google works together with local delivery companies to enable the supply of products to consumers’ homes from the nearby stores.
Isn’t it strange that Google wants to go into the delivery business?
