Anyone who has ever spent more than a few minutes on the Internet know what Google is. The giant has been in business since 1998 and is synonymous with searching the Web. Google has also expanded considerably over the past decade, adding a number of tools, resources and business to its repertoire. One of these is Google Shopping, which, like its competitors, offer online buyers a look at products and comparisons of their prices. Google Shopping was started in 2002 and has undergone several rebrands and changes. The name became Google Search in 2012.
Google Shopping has the following elements that you will like as an online shopper or merchant:
Surprisingly, Google Shopping has some flaws and shortcomings that you should be aware of when deciding where to turn to for online shopping. Here are some things Google Shopping does not do well and needs to improve on:
Some prices are estimates. When you buy something, you want to know exactly what you're paying. While the price listings do include tax and shipping (as noted above in "The Good" section), many of the figures are merely estimates.
I use Google Shopping almost weekly as I look up item after item and when I find what I want I but it or compare it to other locations. It is easy to use and very user friendly to search by keyword or other ways.
Always easy and comprehensive. Google knows how to make shopping friendly. And always tons of products. Good experiences so far.
Most excelent, especially when multi tasking different project for home or work.
Products easy to find-Shopping made easy. Fast delivery

its fast , dependable, safe, clean site, Im not sure if you can make better, it's better right now
Excellent service,very friendly and very professional.
I am very pleased & trust Google shopping. They give me a wide range of product selections. Sometimes, I have difficulty receiving the "exact company" I'm searching for, when I am trying to locate a company, opposed to a product. I would prefer that Google provide the exact company's website.
Quit their business. services suck no help from anyone
Easy to use. Information very useful. Multiple shopping and price points are clear and readily available.
I never have any problem with Google. Everything I order is available - nothing has to be back ordered.
It has been relatively helpful. I would like to see the search engine's interface expanded to include more refined searches which in turn would provide increased probabilities to find a specific product within the user's local area. Additionally, I would like to see a more secure ratings system for each retailer which products/services are being offered. This would instill a greater consumer confidence in the retailers provided.
Great product no improvements.fast shipping. Customer service is good, price was good. THANK YOU
Good experience, ease of ordering and searching for products.
Google gives me the best pricing across all vendors.
I have tried several shopping search engines but Google always points me in the right direction. They are perfect in every way!

99% of the time i find what i want. you get a variety of choices.
Excellent. Products are as described, delivered on time for a fair price.
Very easy to use and very help to use has a variety of options
Positive overall. I like the vast array of products and services accessable through the engine. What i dont like is the failure to pay a fair share of taxes on the profits they make.
It's easy to use, search based on several words and provides several options
They cover many online stores, but I feel it is incomplete and wonder if the search engine is 'steering' me rather than providing unbiased and complete information.
Usually they are excellent, sometimes they look up the wrong thing even with a good descriptor.
excellent product. fast service no phony hype good selection
You're looking for it, you're most likely to find it. You just got to be smart to decifer the truth to the lies.
Use google shopping to find the best prices! Pros: Can search multiple sites in one place Can sort by price to find the best deal If you don't care about quality (see review below) you can normally find the best deals on a product (textbooks, DVDs, books, etc.) Cons: Some of the sites they feature are less well known Some of the sites they feature sell bootleg or fakes of the real products (books are a perfect example), no way to distinguish between the two unless you are vigilant
google pretty mush takes the headache of going site to site. very convenient!
I've never purchased directly from searching on Google. But searching for items is easy and nicely organized. It would be nice to have more stores listed when on the shopping tab to get more accurate information on the items I'm looking for (sometimes the websites aren't listed correctly)
I use google all the time when I am shopping, however, sometimes my searches come up with barely anything which can be disappointing but for the most part I can find the best deals through Google Shopping.
I use google for everything. If I need to find someone to buy something specific I will google it and it always helps me. Google shopping is very easy to maneuver and use. I use google shopping often
Arguably the best search engine for just about anything. Google controls the search engine world like no other. When I need to search something I go straight to Google. I very rarely ever use any other search engine. When using it for shopping its great as you would expect. Much like everything google does its shopping search engine is of course flawless.

So far I've only bought one thing through Google Shopping but it was a very nice experience. I bought an Iron Maiden shirt and it was much cheaper than elsewhere online. Fast shipping, I got it within the week and the shirt was in great condition.
They have the ability to find items that I am looking for and get them to me quickly and at a very good price. I also believe that they are only going to get better over time.
Google is the best and easiest to use. I don't always love the "sponsored" items but its easy to find what you are looking for when shopping.
Google shopping search is good for about the first page and a half and then it is mostly repeat products and companies. It is also not a wide variety of retailers.
Google shopping lets you add filters to the results which is really handy. They also let you search the offers of many other websites at once which helps lower search time.
Very convenient for a quick look at what is available from a range of suppliers. I mostly use to get an initial idea of what is available before narrowing down my search.
When I find something I want to buy on Amazon, I always check Google first to make sure it’s not listed cheaper somewhere else
I always use Google shopping when I’m trying to find a really weird item – I know I’ll be able to find it and compare prices among multiple websites
I always check google shopping when looking online to see what places sell what I'm looking for. It's very helpful and easy to use.
I like google shopping because it can usually pull up everything on the internet that is in a certain category. For example, I need a purple, long sleeved shirt. If I type that in the search engine it will pull up many purple, long sleeved shirts and where to to buy them. I like the way that it displays the least expensive price. It is unique and has been helpful when looking for specific items.
I use Google as a search engine multiple times a day. Great site!
Google is nice because it has comprehensive searching and compares prices for you.
Google is the best. It super easy to use and always knows what im looking for.
Never have any complaints about Google. Makes each experience fast and efficient.
Easy and convenient. I have found great deals using google.
Let's be real. Google is basically the greatest website ever. Right?
Ok company to work with good product value.
Google is my friend I can find anything and everything I am searching for.
I used to be a huge fan of Google- but I have been disillusioned with them lately. Their search engine is great because I can price compare, but I have a hard time justifying using their service when they do so much to suppress opposing companies.
I love google shopping! It shows lots of options from different online stores, shows prices, reviews, etc.
