What is Buy on Google?


Buy on Google (formerly purchases on Google) is an online marketplace found in Google shopping. Buy on Google allows customers to search, browse, compare, and purchase directly on Google without being redirected to a retailer's website. Buy on Google uses a universal shopping cart and saved customer payment information to provide an instant checkout experience from multiple online platforms.


With Google's recent announcement that they'll be removing commission fees for shopping listings, the Buy on Google marketplace is currently the only marketplace in the US that does not charge any fees to sell on their platform. This is great for sellers, enabling you to keep prices competitive and at parity with other sales channels while expanding your reach to a wider audience of shoppers.


Codisto supports Buy on Google enabling you to sync all Buy on Google orders & inventory updates with your ecommerce platform for fulfillment.


Another great benefit of Buy on Google is, unlike Amazon, your customer data belongs to you and can be accessed at any time, making omnichannel marketing, and customer retargeting much more achievable.
