Although eBay is best known for online auctions, the company is now testing the waters of same-day retail delivery with a service called eBay Now. The service has launched in beta for residents of San Francisco only. Through an iPhone app, users can order products from partnering retailers such as Macy’s, Target, and Best Buy, and receive them the same day. Deliveries cost $5 each, and the service is only available for purchases over $25, but beta testers get a $15 credit on their first order, and free shipping on their first three purchases.
