If you live in San Francisco, San Jose and New York, you’re in luck – eBay Now is here for you! The new site, available from 9am-9pm Monday -Saturday and from 9am-6pm Sundays is a valet service in the listed launch cities that once you log in with your eBay account, can scroll through retailers’ merchandise from stores such as Home Depot, Macy’s, Office Depot, Radio Shack, Target, Toys R Us, Urban Outfitters, Walgreens, and more, check out, and have the goods delivered to wherever you are for same-day service, which can be in as little as an hour!
Pretty genius, right? This is great for travelers, new moms, if you have a cold, or just need something in a jiffy, like a present, and don’t have time to make it to the store. The order minimum is $25, with a $5 delivery per store, with a tip for your valet as optional.
Courtesy of eBay Now, I tested out the service, on a Saturday morning when I had a lot of work to do, but no toothpaste left to squeeze out of the tube! When you search products at the site, it gives you options for which retailer to choose; pay attention to this since you can only check out with one retailer at a time, so that you don’t incur an extra $5 charge per store and need to up your order quantity and cost.
