Google to tackle Amazon with 'Buy' button?

19 May 2015

google Soon enough, when you're shopping for a new pair of shoes or wanting to buy some movies, when you search in Google, you might have the option to buy it directly through them, rather than messing about pressing buttons to get to Amazon or eBay and wasting your valuable minutes on this planet.

That's right - the search behemoth is apparently looking to rollout a 'Buy' button on its Shopping tab. Google say they won't get any commission on this and they're thinking about doing it to help you out. They're selfless like that, clearly.

That, or they're going mine all that lovely data and sell it on for a wad of money from someone.

Anyway, according to various reports and mutterings, these buttons will appear alongside paid search results in the 'Shop on Google' section.

Seeing as Google have Google Wallet, you'd think that they'll store your payment details in that, so you don't need to enter your payment details all the time. That means you might have to be signed-in with Google all the time, which again, works in their favour massively and will no doubt annoy people who don't have a Google account.
