Google are looking to expand into yet another area of the market, with Reuters reporting that the Mountain View-based search giant are apparently working with retailers on a same-day delivery service, along the lines of Amazon Prime and eBay Now and local dispatchers like Postmates' GetItNow.




TechCrunch reported on the story too, where they said the search giant would grab your purchased goods from local retailers, and deliver them to your door through third-party couriers. Google would charge just $64-$69 a year for the service, while Reuters' source said a small fee per purchase might also be tacked on. Either way, it's not expensive - well, not for someone like me in Australia anyway.


Reuters have reported that Google are already testing this out in the Bay Area in "recent weeks".
