Google planning same-day delivery service from select retailers

CNETAnalysis: Amazon Prime subscribers love free two-day shipping, but Google may be planning to one-up the e-tailer with a less expensive service offering same-day delivery from brick-and-mortar retailers. TechCrunch reported Tuesday that Google may be quietly preparing to launch a new e-commerce initiative known as Google Shopping Express. According to sources, the same-day delivery service would undercut Amazon’s popular $79 per year Prime offering, which gives subscribers free two-day shipping on almost everything the e-tailer sells. Reportedly led by Google e-commerce product manager Tom Fallows, Shopping Express is being positioned as $10 to $15 less expensive than Amazon Prime, with same-day delivery from select retailers. No more waiting Priced at $64 or $69 per year, Google Shopping Express would deliver products the same day they are ordered from brick-and-mortar retailers such as Target, Walmart, Walgreens and Safeway. Amazon has also been testing new ways to deliver goods purchased online, an idea Google appears to want a piece of as well, judging from its recent acquisition of BufferBox. Currently available only in Canada, BufferBox offers consumers a central, convenient place to pick up packages at any time of day, although it’s unclear how Google might implement the service into Shopping Express, if at all. Shopping Express could be a big boost for Google Wallet and Google Shopping , Mountain View’s existing e-commerce offerings which have largely floundered, despite being tied into the company’s core search engine service.

Dheere Dheere Lyrics Har pal meriyaan yadaan
Yadaan vich ae tun
Dil di gal main dassa
Te dassa fir kinnu (x2)

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do
Jhoomu main naachu main gaaun ke likhun
Tere liye main kya karun

Dheere dheere se meri zindagi mein aana
Dheere dheere se dil ko churana (churana..)
Tumse pyaar hume hai kitna jaane jaana
Tumse mil kar tumko hai batana

Sham wahi, kaam wahi
Tere bina o sanam
Neend nahi, chain nahi
Tere bina o sanam (x2)

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do?
Jhoomu main nachu main gaaun ke likhun
Tere liye main kya karun
