A couple of years after it was first launched, the eBay Now same-day shipping service is being retired by the company in the United States.
"While we saw encouraging results with the eBay Now service, we always intended it as a pilot, and we are now exploring delivery and pick-up/drop-off programs that are relevant to many more of our 25 million sellers, and that cover a wider variety of inventory that consumers tell us they want," eBay said in a blog post.
In addition, the company is also decommissioning some its apps, including Valet, Fashion, and Motors, saying that the key functionality from these apps will be integrated into the flagship eBay app. While the first two will be killed in the coming weeks, the last will be decommissioned later this year.
eBay says the changes are aimed at providing a simplified experience to its customers.
