Amazon, Google expand same-day shopping

Tech Industry
Amazon is giving retail stores a whole new headache. I'm Bridget Carey. And this is your c|net update. [MUSIC] Amazon expanded its same-day delivery services to six more major metro areas, challenging the convenience of actually going to the store. If you live in an area with the same day service, you can order items on Amazon by noon, and get it to your door by nine pm that night. Prime subscribers pay six dollars for same day delivery. For non-members, the option costs ten dollars with an extra one dollar charge for every additional item. Getting from their right away is the one thing that gave bookstores the edge over Amazon. But if you don't mind paying more than save yourself a trip, now you can get all sorts of things right away, books, diapers, gadgets, even power tools. When kids are in a last minutes rush to get books for school, Amazon won't be the only option for same day delivery. Now Google's shopping express service includes books from Barnes & Noble. Google's service is not as widespread as Amazon. It's only for Manhattan, West LA and the San Francisco Bay area. But it does offer many types of goods from major retailers and the delivery costs less than Amazon. Since Google's trying to get people to try it out, there's no delivery fee for now. But it could cost $5 in the future, which is still less than what Amazon charges. eBay is also in the battle to be your same-day provider with the eBay Now service. eBay also works with multiple retailers, including Barnes & Noble and Target, and it promises delivery in about two hours. The fee is $5, but you have to spend at least $25 in goods. Window delivery is only five bucks. It actually pays off to use these services for large items, like televisions. This isn't just a trend for tech companies. Walmart and Target are both testing same day delivery for their merchandise and groceries. And Target also offers same-day pick up in some stores. Amazon is expected to expand its grocery delivery service this year. Switching topics, there's an update in an app that's loved by online shoppers. Pinterest has taken the next step in its social media evolution. It just became a chatting app. You can now send direct messages with friends to have a conversation about pins. If you're not already familiar with how Pinterest works, you pin links and photos that catch your interest, and you can lump them into categories, like: inspiration for planning a project. And other people follow what you share. Now that you could just have a private conversation about an idea, like what to make for dinner, this gives people more incentive to use the site. That's your tech news update but you can check out more details on these stories at cnet.com and, to stay updated, be sure to subscribe to our podcast. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey. [MUSIC]
