Ebay nowDamien Moye
Ebay has announced it is starting a service for same day shipping. They are calling it ebay now. This currently is going to be started in San Fransisco and people are being asked to be.in a beta test of the service. Now so far from what I have read the shipper does need to be local and right the beta is set for a 5 dollar same day shipping option. It only works for purchases over $25, but beta testers get $15 off their first eBay Now order plus free shipping on their first three orders before a $5 delivery fee kicks in. You can eBay Now from any store on its Milo platform, the service is open to SF residents M-Sat 9am to 9pm and Sunday 9am-6pm, and deliveries can arrive in as little as an hour but a store must be open at least a half hour after an order is place. Partnered stores include Macy’s, Toys’R’Us, Target, and Best Buy. Those invited will get prioritized for access before general signups. So if this beta works we could see this happening with more and more online shops. We know that Amazon is working on same day shipping. Could this.be where online retail is going?
