Shops dawning in your tablets, desktops and smart phones
Technology and its creative use in Google Shopping enabled shoppers to easily look for a range of products, starting from cameras and ski jackets to toasters and ice cream makers online. Intense categorization further helped enhance the shopping cart with product details including the color, make, brand, size, descriptions, budget range and available locations. If shoppers have found something close to what they had been looking for, there is a way to further filter the experience and give the exact solutions they have been looking. Here’s how.
Enhancing the short listing
Short listing is an amazing feature in Google Shopping that help people indulge further in the product and have a complete belief in what they have been looking for. This sometimes even extends up to comparing products and sharing them with family members and friends for suggestions. With the enhanced Google Shopping, the buying process is more dependent crossing off the holiday items they subsequently come across. This doesn’t just save the product feed but all the accompanying data that is required to know the product better.
3600 product viewing
Now, this is something new and thoroughly creative. Thinks that one buys are less easily described in a two dimensional flat image. With the 3600 experience, shoppers indeed will get more information about the dimensions, weight, functionality and even the quality of a product. The interactive experience also enhance the feeling of a real store experience wherein one could actually have a firsthand look on the product. Manufacturers would certainly be able to do more with the 3600 product catalogues and Google provides an easy option. One just needs to fill out a form such that Google can help make the product catalog enriching.
We have been seeing Google developers to contently try and make shopping experience richer.
