The order is more likely to come in one box and travel the shortest distance, two factors that contribute to shipping costs.

Customers can shop from more than 2-hundred thousand popular items on Walmart dot com, ranging from diapers and laundry detergent to toys and electronics.

Walmart says introducing the feature is a smart business move for the company, because it actually costs less to ship out multiple goods in a single box from a fulfillment center located closest to the customer than to ship out multiple boxes from all over the country.

"NextDay" delivery will first become available to Walmart.com customers in Phoenix and Las Vegas, and will expand to Southern California in the coming days. The discounter plans to roll out the service to 75% of the US population by year-end.

Walmart Inc. said overnight Tuesday that it will begin offering next-day delivery without a membership fee on eligible orders of $35 or more.

Walmart is piloting its own next-day delivery service - but with a competitive twist. It is available on orders of $35 or more. "This means the order ships in one box, or as few as possible, and it travels a shorter distance via low-priced ground shipping", he says. The announcement comes not even three weeks after Amazon announced it would speed up its two-day Prime shipping to one day for eligible items. The company is also keen to point out this offer does not require a paid membership as is required for Amazon Prime. Everything that the user places into the NextDay delivery cart must be eligible to get the free delivery. We're on track to offer Grocery Pickup from 3,100 stores and same-day Grocery Delivery from 1,600 stores by year-end, which will provide coverage to approximately 80% and 50% of the USA population, respectively. The retail already will also offer same-day delivery on groceries from 1,600 stores by year-end.

On April 25, Amazon said it plans to deliver packages to members of its loyalty club Prime in just one day and expects to spend $800 million toward the shipping goal in the second quarter alone. Cut-off times vary by location.

Walmart has been planning free next day shipping for a while.
