Let us explain what Google Shopping is first-
As defined by Google: “When you use Google Shopping, you’re browsing products from advertisers and merchants who have chosen to feature their products on Google Shopping.”
Google Shopping serves as both: a comparison-shopping website and as a marketplace.
It is a free option allowing users to shop online hundreds of stores, showcasing millions of products.

To make this easier to understand, we will compare the delivery services offered by both the marketplaces in these countries separately.
Now, Let’s look at what features Google Shopping offers in terms of delivery in the US.
Google Shopping offers free delivery above order of $25-$30, depending on the different stores.
Free delivery means no extra shipping cost and service fees.
Best of all, Google Shopping offers same-day delivery.
In some areas, it can take up to 3 days. The estimated time will be displayed at the time of checkout.
