Google Base; a move towards e-commerce

According to a recent article in the Financial Times, Google is planning to move closer towards providing e-commerce solutions targetting small business owners. Seen as an add-on to their current set of tools, Google plans to create an online market for traditional retailers via it’s recently unveiled “Google Base” service.

The “virtual supermarket” by developing the search engine is currently undergoing beta testing, but is seen as a direct move into other “add-on” areas by the Google brand.
