Amazon isn’t the only tech giant expanding its same-day delivery services: Apple just debuted same-day delivery for select products through its Apple Store app in San Francisco.
Forget drones, Amazon has been experimenting with a far more innovative method of providing same-day delivery to its customers. As part of a new pilot program, it turns out that one of the most efficient methods of getting packages to doorsteps are good old-fashioned yellow taxis.
Verizon is trying out a scheme where it'll offer same-day delivery for phones ordered online—first in Philadelphia, then hopefully in NYC, Dallas, San Francisco and Pittsburgh. Just in case you really, really need that new handset right now.
Google's Shopping Express, a subscription-based, same-day delivery service, just opened to the public in San Francisco.
TechCrunch claims that Google is "stealthily preparing" to launch a new same-day-shipping Amazon Prime competitor called Google Shopping Express.
All the speculation about Amazon's same-day shipping service may have been wishful thinking, but it seems like eBay is really going to give it a shot. The auction service has started sending invites to the beta of "eBay Now," which provides just that.
