but you know,for 30 cents, my post office delivers my parcel by tomorrow..

According to a story this week in The Information (subscription required), the company’s 16-month-old Google Shopping Express service loses big money on every one of its same-day deliveries (it charges $5 per delivered order from one of its retail partners after a free six-month trial period).
