Google Commerce Search Improves the Online Shopping Experience

Posted by Mark Thompson - November 9, 2009 - Ecommerce - No Comments
Just in time for the 2009 holiday season, Google has announced its new eCommerce service called Google Commerce Search.  Google has created an shopping cart for online retailers that is meant to improve site search and usability.  The new cart comes equipped with a number of customizations and leverages Google’s search technology.  All shopping carts will also be hosted on Google’s servers.

To get started users will have to contact a Google representative.  Once they are signed up, users will upload their product database to Google Merchant Center and choose a number of customizations including design elements, promotions, categories, and pricing.  Pricing will be determined by the number of products and number of searchers performed on the site.  With that being said, this eCommerce solution is not cheap.  The shopping cart starts at $50k/year.

What Google says about Google Commerce Search:
  • Enable visitors to find the right products faster
  • Filter results by category, price, brand or other attributes
  • Provide user-friendly spelling options and synonyms
  • Increase website conversions and sales
  • Boost or promote chosen products within search results
  • Deploy search solution in days, and scale effortlessly
  • Customize, track, and optimize performance
