Dear BufferBox fans,
When we started BufferBox three years ago, we were excited about the opportunity to try something new, provide a great service to users, and learn how it could make online shopping better. The reaction we got was more than we ever could have hoped for, and the ride only got more exciting when we joined Google in 2012.
We’re constantly looking for new ways to help people buy their favorite products online faster and easier, and as always, it’s important to evaluate the areas where we focus our efforts. That’s why we made the difficult decision to wind-down the standalone BufferBox service, instead bringing the lessons, technology and expertise of the team to future Google products, like Google Shopping Express.
We want to thank all of our amazing users, partners, fans, and the startup community who’ve supported us from the very beginning. We’re more committed than ever to building products that users love, and are excited to continue working with the rest of the Google team to bring that to you soon.
Team BufferBox, May 2014
