Google Testing Same Day Shopping Service

Watch out Amazon, Google is looking to get into the e-commerce business with a new service that would offer same day delivery on many products.

It’s called Google Shopping Express. Consumerist has more about it: “Google Shopping Express would work thusly: Local stores advertise their products online, Google hooks them up with a third-party delivery service like a courier, who then picks up the items and delivers them to the customer in the same day. Google itself wouldn’t have a hand in deliveries, nor would the retailers, notes an anonymous source in touch with Reuters.”

According to Reuters, Google may charge an annual subscription for the service, similar to Amazon Prime, which costs $79 a year for two-day delivery on Amazon orders. Would you pay for a same day delivery service from Google?
