So it is no surprise that details are emerging about a ‘Buy Button’ that will allow users to complete a purchase entirely within a paid search listing without having to visit the actual selling merchant. Search Engine Watch explained how the Google Buy Button is expected to work; creating an Amazon like situation where users store their payment information once with Google and use it to purchase from multiple selling merchants.

So what does that mean for SME’s?
