In order to keep up with the demanding consumer and probably Amazon’s fast delivery service, the online auction giant eBay are testing out same day delivery in the San Francisco area on purchases over $25 (£16). If you live in the area you can sign up here and share your three beta test invites too!
This is the main content from the email invite from eBay to beta testers;
Starting today, for purchases of $25 or more, San Francisco shoppers can order products from local stores and have them delivered to their door — at home, at work, or anywhere else in San Francisco. The new service is called eBay Now, and you can download it here for your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod® touch.
Since eBay Now is in beta, we’re taking $15 off your first order and offering FREE delivery for your first three! After that, each delivery during the beta period is only $5. Your orders arrive fast — usually within an hour! Pretty convenient, huh?
