Wal-Mart tests online grocery delivery service in California

San Jose, California -- Wal-Mart began testing an online grocery delivery system Saturday, but only in San Jose, according to the Mercury News.

In order to compete with other delivery services, the biggest grocer in the U.S. will allow customers to order groceries online and be delivered the next day, reported the New York Times.

The prices are the same as the ones in the stores, but an order must total $49 for delivery and can be bought three weeks in advance, the Mercury News said.

But the New York Times said there are some limitations, for example, oranges are not available for individual purchase and beef cannot be ordered to specification but in prepackaging.

Wal-Mart To Go has a delivery charge of $5 to $10, but does not allow tipping, according to the Mercury News.
