New Google Play Store shipping options available: Ground and Saver
Two new shipping options are now officially available to Play Store users interested in buying Google hardware, just as previously rumored.
Ground and Saver shipping options have been quitely added to the Google Play Store checkout shipping options, allowing you to save cash on your orders. The downside is that you’ll have to wait a while longer to get your precious gadgets.
Compared to the Two Day shipping option, which ensures your device will be shipped in one or two business days, with Ground you’ll have to wait 3-5 business days for your ordered items to ship, while with Saver your package will ship in 5-10 business days.
However, not all three options will be available with all Play Store items or accessories. The longer you’d wait for a Nexus 7 to arrive, the less you’d pay for shipping: $9.99 via Ground compared to $13.99 via Two-Day. But the Saver option is not available for the 7-inch tablet at this time.
While free shipping is not quite there yet, at least you can now save some bucks on shipping, that is if you’re able to keep you patience in check when it comes to playing with new toys.
