Walmart’s drone delivery service with DroneUp is now available in Arizona, Florida and Texas, part of a wider plan to offer the same-day delivery option in six states by the end of this year, the retailer announced Thursday.
Customers within one mile of participating stores — four in the Phoenix area, seven in the Tampa and Orlando areas and 11 in the Dallas area — are eligible to use the service. Orders can be placed through the DroneUp Delivery website between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. local time.
“Drones can deliver more than 10,000 eligible Walmart items up to ten pounds, including fragile items like eggs, in as little as 30 minutes,” according to a news release. “There are no order minimums and the delivery fee is just $3.99.”Retail Dive
