Google's same-day delivery service proved too popular in Manhattan and Google had to shut down its service by noon on the first day, according to a report.
The Google Shopping Express service is supposed to offer same-day delivery service of any item clicked on in Manhattan or West Los Angeles, but by noon Monday, those in Manhattan found a "red disclaimer that said the system couldn’t handle any more deliveries for the day," according to the New York Post. The shopping service is supposed to able to handle orders coming in as late as 4:30 p.m.
As of 12:30 PDT Tuesday, the red disclaimer was still on the Manhattan page, which also had a yellow banner asking customers to "Please check back tomorrow." There were no such notices on the San Francisco, Peninsula & San Jose and West Los Angeles markets.
