According to a Bloomberg report, Google is testing the idea of turning YouTube into an e-commerce platform that would allow the purchase of items featured in videos. YouTube has been testing e-commerce features for a while. Late last year, it began testing Shopify software that enables creators to list as many as 12 items for sale on a digital carousel below their videos, Bloomberg wrote. A YouTube spokesperson confirmed to Bloomberg that the online video-sharing platform is looking into e-commerce options. Google, which bought YouTube in 2006, already has a partnership with Shopify. Earlier this year, the two companies enhanced an existing integration allowing Shopify merchants to list products for free on Google Shopping.
