eBay Quietly Tests Local Same-Day Shipping Service

Mike Isaac, writing for All Things Digital:

"E-commerce giant eBay began testing a same-day delivery service on Sunday, quietly sending out invitations to San Francisco residents. Dubbed ‘eBay Now,’ the mobile app-based service allows city residents to order items $25 and above from local businesses, and have the purchases delivered directly to their homes on the same day. The service, which was first noticed on Sunday by TechCrunch, is currently in beta, though as past coverage indicates, will roll out to more cities in the future."

Looks like Amazon has competition in the same-day-delivery retail market.
