Has eBay topped all other retailers with its local delivery service?

That’s what the Today Show thinks, as reporter Janet Shamlian said in a segment Tuesday morning that local delivery service eBay Now was the answer to online shoppers’ dreams — especially those that need to have their products immediately.

“eBay Now is a direct challenge for other retail giants offering same-day delivery, like Amazon and Walmart,” she said, adding that the “ground war for speedy delivery” was heating up.

The Today Show segment also featured an interview with eBay President Devin Wenig, who said eBay was pushing the industry envelope with eBay Now and “the knowledge that you can get something in an hour [means the]…shopping window now gets closer and closer to the actual holiday.”
