Ground and Saver are the new shipping options at Google Play
There are two main questions that mobile users who want to get the newest devices ask: 1. What are the features of the new device? and 2. How fast can I get it?
Not long ago we got the information that Google Play Store will provide new shipping options for its customers, especially for those who prefer to purchase Android devices and hardware directly from the company. Now the new shipping options are real. They are available mainly for Android smartphones, tablets and accessories offered at Google Play Store. The extra options are not available for Chromebooks.
The new shipping options are called Ground and Saver. They assure significant discounts in the shipping, depending on the option customers choose. The 2 day option is still available. However now, with the Ground (shipping within 3-5 business days) and Saver (shipping within 5-10 business days) customers have more flexible opportunities to choose from according to their preferences and budget when they don’t demand a quick delivery.
The options vary depending on what customers buy. The 2-day option is a constant. Many of the devices at the store provide also the Ground. A lot of accessories at Google Play are offered with the option of Saver. We got a nice example of how it works provided by Droid Life about the Nexus 7 cover offered at the store. This accessory is listed with prices for shipping $4.99 for Saver (shipping within 5-10 business days), $7.99 Ground (shipping within 3-5 business days), and $11.99 (shipping within 2 business days). When you look at the offer for the actual Nexus 7, you will see only the options for Ground or 2-day shipping.
The enrich options for shipping will probably continue to improve and we believe that they will soon become available for more devices and accessories of Android and Google. What do you prefer – fast delivery or the economic shipping?
