Search giant Google are currently testing out a service that would see their e-commerce services receiving same-day delivery on products they purchase. The same-day delivery service is being tested out in San Francisco, where users affiliated with Google are able to get products from at least one national apparel chain.




If Google go ahead with the same-day delivery service, they would be competing with huge retail giants like Amazon, Wal-Mart and eBay, which are all looking to go down the same same-day delivery path.


The New York Times' Bits Blog talks about the details of the unannounced Google service, where according to the report, the Mountain View-based company doesn't plan on opening up warehouses, or begin a new shipping service, but will instead work with retailers and delivery companies. A bunch of national chains, along with San Francisco-based retailers, are currently part of the testing.
