Unless customers are in a hurry for that delivery, most customers will choose the 2 hour time slot so that it doesn’t cost them any more money and they benefit by receiving their product on the same day of ordering. Amazon offer delivery between 8am until Midnight that same day, giving the customer the choice of having their package delivered at work or at home.
