Tesco.com is set to introduce stepped rate charges for deliveries nationwide after trials in Hertfordshire and Essex proved successful.
Customer feedback on the regional trials of a system of peak, off peak and standard charges for deliveries has been "very positive", according to a spokesman. In trial areas there is a charge of £3.99 for off-peak deliveries, the usual £5 between noon and 5pm, and £6.49 for those who want peak time delivery.
The system is set to be rolled out to 85,000 orders nationwide after trials come to an end in the next two months.
