Google updates Commerce Search

E-commerce may not be as sexy as social networking and online content, but millions upon millions of people shop online, spending billions of dollars every year.

For brands and retailers hoping to get a piece of the action, technology is everything. That’s why eBay is spending upwards of $2bn buying GSI Commerce.

Target going in-house for e-commerce

Target, the second-largest discount retailer in the United States, has announced that it will bring its e-commerce website, Target.com, in-house in time for the 2011 holiday season.

Since 2001, Target.com has been run in partnership with Amazon.com. The e-commerce giant’s platform powers the Target.com website and Amazon.com handles much of the call center and fulfillment operations.
