Google launches Commerce Search in Australia

Online shopping search on offer for buyers and sellers

Google today announced the launch of its retail-friendly Commerce Search in Australia. The company says it will help Australian shoppers find products and help online retailers push their wares.

Will Easton, head of retail, technology and consumer products at Google Australia, wrote in a blog entry that Commerce Search would simplify online shopping.

"Commerce Search can improve the performance of sites with e-commerce checkout options, and those that simply allow people to browse and compare, all in a very cost effective way," he said. "We hope that making our infrastructure, skills and experience available will help boost Australia's important retail sector, making it even easier for Aussies to find what they're looking for and shop online, and leaving retailers free to focus on what they do best — retailing."

The pricing model for Google Commerce Search for retailers is based on the number of products and the number of search queries entered on a particular site each year, and starts at $25,000 per year.

Australia is the third country to have a local version of Commerce Search, following its launch in the US and UK late last year.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
