Google Play Store

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.

    Still no play store in Croatia. Friend tells me no play store in Israel. I love Google but it’s taking them to damn long to get the play store to every1. At this point it’s like they gave up and it’s available to a select few.

      Its so sad that Google gives some west countries all of its services while some countries in Europe and even Israel, where Google has 2 centers (Haifa and Tel Aviv), can only use play store for purchasing apps.

      No books, no movies, no music, no magazines, and definitely not devices.

      I find Israel the perfect example for this miss because latest statistics from this week show that 57% of the Israelis have smartphones (ranked 2nd after the UK), and it also shows that they use smartphones more than the world’s average.
