Google partners Shopify on shopping integration

Tuesday, 18. May 2021 21:02

Alphabet Inc's Google announced on Tuesday that it is expanding its partnership with Shopify to create "seamless integration" between the two company's platforms.

The integration will allow over 1.7 million Shopify merchants to have their products shown through Google Search, Maps, Images, Lens and Youtube in "just a few clicks." Google made it free for merchants to sell through their platform last year, which it says led to an 80% increase in the number of merchants, mostly small to medium-sized.

"We're proud to take an open ecosystem approach that helps any merchant, big and small, get discovered. And that gives you more shopping choices," said Google's President of Commerce, Payments and Next Billion Users Bill Ready as he unveiled the new shopping features at the Google Developer Conference.
