eBay Now is a service that lets you order products from any retail store and deliver it around an hour. The service was officially launched for the web on Monday, 21 July, is already available in many stores like AutoZone, Babies “R” Us, Best Buy, Finish Line, GNC, Guitar Center, Home Depot, Macy’s, Office Depot, Radio Shack, Target, Toys “R” Us, Urban Outfitters and Walgreens and different states like San Francisco, San Jose, New York, Bay Area Peninsula, Brooklyn and Queens for selected items for now.
eBay’s vice-president of mobile and local, Dane Glasgow, reported Mashable saying:
“As we’ve seen mobile really take off at the consumer level it is really blurring the lines between offline and online commerce, the fact that you always have a connected device with you is having a huge influence on how people shop and buy, both at home and when they’re out on the street.”
The shoping is done just like as you would do on any online retail store, collecting items into a virtual shoping cart and order them to you specified location. A valet is dispatched to the store from which you have purchased items, to do shopping for you. Good thing is that your requested items are delivered within an hour.
The vice-president also told that the mobile version of eBay Now has been used to deliver any thing, from iPhone to Medicines. He told Mashable that one biker even asked for the material he needed to repair his bike tires and he had it delivered.
