eBay Beta-Tests Same-Day Delivery; Good Times Ahead In 2012 http://seekingalpha.com/article/814261-ebay-beta-tests-same-...eBay (EBAY) is testing a new same-day delivery service called "eBay Now". Once you hit the "Bring It" button, your personal eBay shopping valet will pick up the signal and deliver the item to wherever you are-the office, home or the nearby coffee shop. The delivery fee for your first three purchases (which can't cost less than $25) will be waived, after which point a $5 surcharge will be tacked on.It's still in beta mode as of yet. We might expect something from eBay very soon though."Same-day services are satisfying both the convenient need of online shopping and immediacy factor of offline," says Scot Wingo, chief executive officer of ChannelAdvisor, a global e-commerce software provider.Though previous attempts at same-day delivery didn't come to fruition, will eBay be any successful at it?...Quarterly revenues increased to $3.4 billion last quarter this year from $2.2 billion during the second quarter in 2010, for the ninth time at a stretch. Just going by this information, eBay seems to know what it is doing. More revenues always signify business growth, good for us, investors!Quarterly operating income rose to $695 million last quarter this year compared to $485 million same quarter in 2010. Operating income says whether the company is performing positively or negatively.
