At eBay’s Analyst Day event, the company announced plans to offer same-day delivery services for Chicago and Dallas. eBay will be joining the ranks of companies like Amazon.com and Google to offer same day delivery services. eBay’s same-day delivery services is known as eBay Now.
eBay will be offering same-day delivery services to Target, Walgreens, Toys R Us, Best Buy and Macy’s. eBay’s VP of mobile and local Dane Glasgow said that 90% of shopping is still done in physical stores and that about 75% of commerce happens 15 miles from home.
?Our ambition [is to] bridge the gap between online and offline through retail thru great tech, platforms & experiences,? said Glasgow as quoted by TechCrunch. eBay Now launched their beta tests in San Francisco back in August 2012. From there, eBay now expanded to New York in November. You can download the eBay Now app from the Apple App Store now.
