The auction giant provides a similar service in San Francisco and New York, and now with the acquisition of Shutl is preparing to expand it across more than twenty other U.S. cities, while also bringing the service to the United Kingdom.
Basically, if the Ebay seller and buyer are located in the same area, the rapid delivery service can be used.
Shutl already operates in the UK, with clients such as Argos, Warehouse and Schuh. Customers can choose between a delivery as soon as possible, or select a one-hour window within which to receive the goods. It touts a record delivery time of under 14 minutes.
There is a cost to convenience of course, with Shutl charging up to £6.99 for the rapid delivery.
