Harvey Norman and Shippit team up for same day, three hour delivery
Australian delivery startup Shippit has kicked off a nationwide partnership with Harvey Norman that will see the retailer offer same day, three-hour delivery in capital cities.
As of today, customers purchasing small appliances, consumer electronics, and small goods via Harvey Norman's website will be able to schedule deliveries for between 7am and 10pm on weekdays. On vehicle GPS units give shoppers the ability to track their driver's progress in real time.
Pricing will depend on local courier costs, time of day, and distance. An afternoon delivery could cost as a little as AUD$10 or so, while evening deliveries attract a hefty premium (potentially as much as AUD$40).
Harvey Norman is the first major Australian retailer to offer three-hour delivery.
