Amazon rumored to be working on same-day delivery

Amazon logoIf there’s one disadvantage about shopping online it has to be the fact that you have to wait for what you want. Even though it’s so convenient to just buy what you want from the comfort of your own home, you usually have to spend a day or two (or sometimes even weeks) just waiting for the package to be delivered to your doorstep. And let’s not forget about the shenanigans that couriers pull off from time to time. However, it looks like Amazon might be coming up with a plan to change all that (for itself).

In case you’re wondering why Amazon can price its goods so low – it’s because they now have centers set up in tax-friendly states. But according to reports online, Amazon will be setting up distribution centers across the country – including those that insist on collecting sales tax. And if you’re puzzled as to why Amazon would do such a thing, the Financial Times has an answer: so that Amazon can perform same-day deliveries. While this is all rumor and speculation for now – it does make sense. Having centers all over the country means that Amazon will be closer to its customers and therefore be able to provide such services.

If same-day delivery does come true, it looks like Amazon will have a huge edge over the competition. Nobody likes waiting for their goods to arrive and having same-day delivery alleviates the problem. However, it’s probably going to come with a price due to the company no longer avoiding sales tax with this strategy. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens. What do you think of same-day delivery?
