Google is looking into retailers and shippers about deploying a new system that would enable online shoppers to have same-day or next-day delivery for a low fee.
If successful, the speedy delivery system could pose a serious threat to Amazon.com the leading seller of online goods.
I can see were this will go. I assume Google Products will be the system that is used so this feature will probably not be free and might even go into the PPC area for placement. This would indeed be an issue for smaller online stores that can't afford the cost of PPC and compete with the bulk shipping reduction. I already take a hit on shipping now anymore and I might as well convert my site to something else.
