Google begins same-day delivery pilot in San Francisco

Same-day delivery pilot goes live for Google in San Francisco

Google have begun their pilot scheme for a same-day delivery service in the San Francisco Bay Area, where it will potentially open up to other areas in the near future.

The Mountain View-based search giant are offering testers a six-month period of deliveries from retailers in the area, free to the consumer, with all of the shopping taking place in a single online store. Testers of the same-day delivery service will be able to select from a number of local stores, including the big ones like Target, Staples and more.

 

The deliveries are then dispatched for a specific time, based upon the consumers' delivery instructions. Google are still reportedly working on a pricing scheme, but this could cost below $70 per year in order to compete with Amazon Prime.

 

I'd really like to see all of the Google delivery drivers to be wearing Google Glass, using the on-board Maps app for directions and delivery instructions - that would be very cool.
