For many, it’s rare to go a week and not receive a package at their door. And for some, we’ve gone from waiting 7-10 days for an order to sometimes less than two hours.

The way we shop has changed with how fast our fingertips can press the checkout button. It’s a phenomenon called the “Now Economy.”
