Walmart introduces early morning same-day delivery options

Consumers will be able to get their orders as early as 6 a.m.

For the last few months, Walmart shoppers have been able to place orders for delivery through 10:00 p.m

Now, the retailer is once again expanding same-day delivery services, but this time, for the morning hours. Starting in mid-March, shoppers can set-up orders to be delivered to their doorsteps starting at 6 a.m. Prior to this announcement, 8 a.m. was the earliest orders were delivered. 

“Starting at 6 a.m., earlier than ever before, customers can enjoy the convenience of on-demand delivery,” the company wrote in a statement. “This expanded timing offers them peace of mind knowing they can get things they need at their doorstep to kickstart the day.” 

Fast, early morning deliveries

Whether it’s a last minute grocery order, school supplies that you forgot to pick up, or diapers, Walmart’s early morning deliveries can be on your doorstep within 30 minutes. Baby essentials, work attire, home appliances, and outdoor supplies are all part of the possibilitiesw. 

This new delivery feature is for consumers who can’t miss their early morning meeting, need supplies before a road trip, need to prep breakfast, or just want their orders as soon as possible. 

How it works

Shoppers will be able to start placing orders for early morning deliveries in mid-March. 

To take advantage of early morning deliveries, shoppers can either go to Walmart’s website or mobile app and start creating an order the way they normally would. From there, there are two express delivery options: delivery within an hour or delivery within three hours. 

For one-hour delivery, there is a $10 delivery fee, while the three-hour delivery window comes with a $5 delivery fee. However, for those with a Walmart+ membership, there is no delivery fee. 

“As we continue to innovate and accelerate, the message is clear: shopping should be personal and as tailored to fit your lifestyle as those freshly-delivered work shirts,” Walmart said.

“With Walmart’s On-Demand Early Morning Delivery and a suite of other convenient options, we’re making sure you have what you need, when you need it, so you can reclaim your time no matter what the clock says.”
