Google Play to get new shipping options May 28
If there’s one thing drab about Google Play, it’s their shipping options on devices and accessories – or, rather, lack thereof. Shipping is expensive, and doesn’t come with many shipping length options. However, that’s set to change. According to inside sources, here’s a rundown of changes set to be made:
What: We [Google Play] will offer new shipping options for the Nexus 4 family of products:
- UPS two-day shipping (2 business days processing + 2 business days for delivery)
- Ground (2 business days processing + 3-5 business days for delivery)
- Saver (2 business days processing + 5 -10 business days for delivery)
Note: Saver shipping is not available for some orders. Availability of Saver shipping is based on the weight of the order.
Note: Total shipping cost is calculated based on the shipping level selected at checkout and the weight of the item or items in their cart, as determined by our shipping provider.
The shipping options are set to roll out for the “Nexus 4 family” of products, possibly implying the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 will have 2-day shipping for the time being. This could also mean accessories.
