Google to Launch Same-Day Delivery Service; Battle With Amazon and eBay Heats Up
Adding to a six-month-long drumbeat of rumors, Google is reportedly preparing the launch of a same-day delivery service, Google Shopping Express, TechCrunch reports. Google has many of the pieces for such a service already. Its shopping search can tell when a given item is in stock in stores nearby. Its Wallet service processes payments. And through the on-the-ground work it does to create Google Maps, the company has far more experience with real-world logistics than one might suspect.
