Earlier this year, Google confirmed that it would merge Shopping (a way to search for products from many stores in one place) and Express (a combined storefront for multiple retailers) to make the new Google Shopping.

Instagram Checkout lets you buy stuff without having to leave the app

Since the app is increasingly used by influencers and fashion brands to showcase clothing, footwear, and other hot products, it's no surprise that Instagram has worked to build out its shopping features.

That can add up right quick, but Google's hoping to ease the impact on some lucky shoppers as it announces plans to give away up to $500 in Google Express credit.

Nike is now selling its gear through Google Express, alongside a hundred other new stores

Google Express still isn't the retail juggernaut Google would probably like it to be, but it's also far from hurting for partner stores. Every few weeks we update you with the latest stores to come on board, and it's rare that we don't see several dozen new faces.

This time, though, we've got at least one brand with some heavy-duty name recognition, as Nike begins Google Express sales.
