Google on Monday announcedShopping Actions, a new marketing initiative that will allow its Search and Assistant services to sell products directly to consumers in exchange for a portion of revenues retailers generate in such a manner.
Google says it will use a pay-per-sale model, which means it's only taking a cut of the sale when a shopper makes a purchase.
The previously unreported initiative sprang from Google's observation that tens of millions of consumers were sending image searches of products, asking "Where can I buy this?" The feature would, in theory, give customers the convenience of buying from multiple retailers at once, instead of going back over to Amazon to complete their purchases.
"We have taken a fundamentally different approach from the likes of Amazon because we see ourselves as an enabler of retail", Alegre said.
