Bill Ready, President of Commerce, Payments, and Next Billion Users at Google, joins Yahoo Finance to discuss Google e-commerce trends and outlook on the surge in e-commerce.
ALEXIS CHRISTOFOROUS: The coronavirus pandemic has, of course, pushed more shoppers online, and that has added an additional $105 billion in online revenue in 2020. And this year shows no signs of bucking that trend, with more and more companies rushing to embrace e-commerce. Just today, in fact, Google announced updates to its Google Lens platform, allowing users to more easily search for the products that they’re looking for.
Joining me now is Bill Ready, President of Commerce, Payments, and Next Billion Users at Google. Bill, good to see you here. So as I mentioned, we have seen explosive growth across e-commerce in the past year. Just curious to see what kinds of trends you’re seeing there at Google.
