Google Inc. is delving deeper into the rapidly growing area of Internet shopping.
The Web search giant is reportedly talking to major retailers and shipping services about creating a platform that would allow consumers to shop across a variety of storefronts. Payment and fulfilment would be speedy with Google Wallet, technology launched in March that allows consumers to buy items with a single tap. Macy’s, which partnered with Google Wallet to enhance its in-store shopping experience, has been cited as one of the retailers Google is targeting. Macy’s could not be reached for comment. Another potential partner, Gap, said it had no comment.
