Amazon ponders same day delivery

<p>Amazon.co.uk has said that same day delivery of books is a &quot;great idea&quot;, but that an announcement about the service is not in the offing. Last week Amazon.co.uk m.d. Brian McBride said Amazon was looking at a &quot;super-fast&quot; delivery service that could deliver books on the same day as order.</p><p>&quot;It will be quite expensive, but for that distressed purchase--for someone who has forgotten a birthday--it will give a range of options,&quot; McBride told the Daily Telegraph.<br /><br />The retailer currently offers three delivery services: a free super saver service for orders of more than &pound;15, a first class system and an express delivery scheme, where if an order is made before 6pm, it will be delivered the next day for &pound;8.99.</p><p>A spokesman for the retailer said: &quot;We&#39;re always looking for ways to improve our service to customers. We know that providing a range of delivery choices is important to them. Same day delivery is a great idea but we have no plans to announce anything currently.&quot;</p>
