eBay enters same-day shipping service with eBay Now

eBay have begun same-day shipping service, announce 'eBay Now'

eBay have entered the same-day shipping service business with eBay Now. eBay Now has arrived, for now, as an iOS app that will allow San Francisco-based residents to get $5 same-day shipping on products from local stores.

The company is signing up users for an "exclusive beta", which lets anyone register and those who do, should get a download link shortly after. It looks like eBay Now currently only works for purchases that exceed $25, but beta testers get $15 off their first eBay Now order as well as free shipping on their first three orders before a $5 delivery fee kicks in.

 

What do you think of eBay's move for same-day shipping? It's a good idea, but I think they're going to need to rapidly expand it to as much of the US as they can, as quick as they can, if they want to keep up with competitors.
