Google – Introduces new ‘Buy Now’ Button feature
This new button will become available in search ads, paving the way for advertisers who want to improve their performance on mobile; and competing with current retailers like Ebay and Amazon. According to Google, when users click on a ‘buy button’, they will be taken to a separate landing page, where you can select your colour/size preferences.
This new feature has not been created to compete against retailers; but to help boost conversions on mobile. As the initial thought is for this new button to help retailers convert better on mobile, as it makes the process of purchasing more convenient. No word yet on when this will be released, but it will most likely be introduced to Android devices before iOS.
