If you're looking to get your mitts on those handmade goods purchased on Etsy the same day, you might soon be in luck. The company is teaming up with Postmates to test same-day and next-day deliveries in parts of New York City. As a refresher, the delivery company already handles packages and food orders from the likes of Apple, Starbucks, McDonald's and Chipotle. As Re/code notes, its partnerships with online shopping outfits (like Everlane) give its couriers work at times of the day when there isn't too much takeout being ordered. Etsy's service, labeled "Etsy ASAP," will be available for sellers in Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn and Queens based on Postmates coverage of the area.

If sellers in those spots have enabled the option, shoppers will see the same-day delivery when checking out. Of course, you also have to be in the area to take advantage. The cost? In order to get your goods quickly, expect to shell out an additional $20. However, buyers will be able to specify a delivery window and track the package while in route. Etsy says the test phase will run through the holiday season, and after the initial trial the company will decide on the next steps.
