Google’s universal shopping cart Will work across Search & ImagesEngadget #Save_SaveMay 16, 2019
Google’s Shopping experience has gotten a big upgrade — one that turns the tech giant’s various products into one seamless shopping portal.
The company has introduced a universal shopping cart that allows you to purchase products from thousands of merchants across its products.
Later this year, the cart will also make its way to Google Images and even YouTube.
And it doesn’t come as a surprise: Google has been testing shopping links under YouTube videos for a couple of weeks now.
The purchasable items will show up as part of your results, and clicking on the cart icon will take you to the big G’s checkout page, unlike ads which take you to retailers’ websites.
Unfortunately, Google doesn’t have any plans to bring it to other regions at the moment.
Google will also start showing whether an item is available for pick-up in store within a shopping ad.
You can choose something that’s available for pick-up today, for instance, if you need a particular item as soon as possible and can’t wait for delivery.
