Google is yet to launch eCommerce services in India but plans to start using it in 2018.
According to a report by Bloomberg, Google is planning to start shipping eCommerce-related products to customers using the same platform as the Google Shopping portal.
Google has also been pushing eCommerce as a feature on its homepage for some time now.
Google’s new plan to ship eCommerce products to Indian customers comes after it announced its first foray into the eCommerce business in January.
Earlier this month, the company announced that it would start shipping products through its online store in India and was launching a free service that allows customers to purchase goods from the Google store through its app.
The company plans to use its existing stores in the United States and China to make its eCommerce service available in India.
The online store has since launched in some markets in the U.S. and other countries, but it has yet to start selling its products in India, where Google currently has no stores.
The launch of eCommerce is another step in Google’s effort to get a foothold in India in the years ahead.
The search giant has been actively pushing for its presence in India for some years now.
Google’s India unit is currently working on its first product offering, a portal where users can buy online.
The portal will initially be a one-stop shop for all products purchased through Google’s online store, which will be rolled out later this year.
