Recently, Amazon revealed its plans to provide same day delivery to Amazon Prime members. And now, Target is set to improve its same-day delivery offerings.
In an official announcement, Target revealed the company’s goal to make it easier for customers to purchase through its website. Target noted that Shipt users will now be able to place their orders and get it on the same day. The company said, “With same-day delivery now available directly within the Target.com experience, we’ve made it even easier for our guests to shop at Target.”
Thanks to the latest changes, Target customers will now be able to get up to 65,000 items delivered to them in as low as an hour given that they order through the website. Prior to the change, customers would need to to visit Shipt’s website or the app if they wanted to find the eligible items for same day delivery.
Target acquired Shipt for $550 million back in 2017. While the improved same day delivery is a welcome addition, you should note that you will be charged $9.99 per delivery in case you choose the same day delivery option. However, if you use the service regularly, you can also subscribe to an annual Shipt membership for $99 per year.
