BEIJING -- JD.com, China's second-biggest online shopping service, has begun selling some of its goods through a Google e-commerce platform in the U.S., a tie-up that offers both sides a chance to expand their virtual retail reach.

Shoppers can buy around 500 products from JD.com's Joybuy in-house brand -- including keyboards, headphones and kitchen appliances -- through Google Express, which also hosts American outlets like discount retailer Costco Wholesale. More goods from the Chinese company likely will be added down the road.
