Google, treading into Amazon.com territory, is launching an experimental same-day delivery service for online purchases.
The Mountain View, Calif., company is testing out Google Shopping Express starting in the Bay Area and is calling for users to sign up to be early testers of the service.
Google said users will be able to use Shopping Express to buy from a number of retailers, all on one online site. After users make their purchase, they can then select when they want the item to be delivered.
"It's a local delivery service that we hope will make it possible for you to get the items you order online the same day, and at a low cost," the company said in a blog post Thursday.
