Guess what? Google is now taking some steps to help you saving some cash. As it was rumored before, recently Google added some new options for shipping of ordered devices from Google Play. If you are not in much hurry to get your order as soon as possible, then you can save little money for yourself.
With previous “Two day” shipping option, the two new shipping options added by the Google are “Ground” and “Saver”. The “Ground” shipping option is available on orders of any products on Google Play which will cost you $9.99 for device and $7.99 for accessories and the product will reach you in 3 to 5 business days. From the picture below you can see the “Ground” shipping option available for Nexus 4 with Bumper (White 8 GB) and is available for all other products too (see the picture after next paragraph).
And the “Saver” shipping option is basically available for only accessories (Restricted based on weight) and will cost you $4.99 only. The shipping will take 5 to 10 days. From the picture below you can see the “Saver” shipping option available for Nexus 10 Cover (Scarlet) and unfortunately this option is not available for all products on Google Play Store (See the picture above).
So these new methods of shipping will be really a little cheaper than a “Two Day” shipping which costs $13.99 for devices and $11.99 for accessories. These new Google Play shipping methods can be selected during checkout. And we hope somewhere in future Google will also bring the free shipping for us.
