eBay launch same day delivery services for Brooklyn
By Dan Boaz
More same day delivery news emanating from the eBay camp this week concerning the expansion of same day services in Brooklyn, New York. On the heels of the recent announcement that eBay have removed their same day app from mobile devices it presents an unexpected about face in terms of the company's objectives in the same day delivery field.
At first glance it presents an aura of uncertainty but on further examination shows that the largest online retailers are making concerted efforts to draw upon the resources of traditional retailers (particularly in terms of holding inventories) while the online company manages the sale and delivery aspect with of course a specific goal of nurturing the same day delivery potential within that market.
What is unique about this move from eBay is that they are partnering with much smaller merchants than they have traditionally been working with. All told about eighty local businesses will be offering same day via this program in addition to offering in-store pickup options. This news signals an apparent reaffirmation of eBay's commitment to their ' eBay local' service already offered in a handful of select markets in the United States.
The retailers are primarily located within Brooklyn and Queens and represent a very alternative take on the same day delivery merchants we're normally seeing partner in such programs. Partners include smaller independent shops and some online retailers in a very novel and local approach. Some of the names include Fashion Habit, Dog Parlour and Prune Danish just to give you a small flavour of the direction of the program.
Once more taking a zip code-based approach to determine customer eligibility, the same day delivery option is set at a flat rate of five dollars with no cost to the retailer.
