Quick & Easy Shopping with eBay Now

It's time to let you guys in on some shopping know-how with eBay Now if you're not yet familiar with it. eBay Now is a shopping service that allows you to buy products from thousands of retailers through the eBay Now website or app and then receive them at your front door about an hour later. I recently ordered a few items from Target using the app and about 60 minutes later an eBay Now shopping valet delivered it to my home for just a $5 flat rate fee.

Stores that are included that I think you muses will love are Bed Bath & Beyond, Sunglass Hut, Walgreens, Free People, Macy's, Target and Urban Outfitters--to name a few. You will need an eBay account (which a lot of you probably already have) to use the site, and you pay for your items via PayPal or major credit cards like anything else you'd order online. 

The eBay Now service lets you speak to your shopping valet if you have questions, track your valet to see the location of your order, or easily return items if necessary. The only catch is that the service is currently only open to the San Francisco Bay Area (except East Bay) and New York City (Queens, Manhattan & Brooklyn). Although they can't deliver alcohol, prescription drugs or major appliances that won't fit in the valet vehicle, they can totally deliver clothes, shoes, accessories and some grocery products to your door. And the service is available seven days a week at convenient shopping times.

Other great fast and fun shopping options include Amazon Prime, which gives you free two-day shipping on a variety of items. Or Google Shopping Express, which pretty much does the same thing as eBay Now. Or even TaskRabbit, which lets you post any random task you need done--anywhere from putting together an Ikea desk to walking your dogs--and then a TaskRabbit employee comes to your home and takes care of it and you pay online.

Have you used any of these quick and easy shopping devices like eBay Now, Amazon Prime or TaskRabbit?
