Earlier last month the newest tech company Grabr introduced a new face to online shopping and delivery. For customers who chose to shop through this site, they will be able to send and receive international packages without the hassle of excessive fees, time constraints, and lost packages.

The idea here is for travelers to bid on orders and deliver items that are difficult to ship internationally. This new way of sending and receiving items will allow those who have a passion for travel a chance to see the world while making some extra cash.

A few companies have already joined Grabr in their efforts to make international shipping more convenient for all parties involved. These companies include; Macy’s and Sephora beauty products, Rainbow bagels in New York City, Yeezy Boots, and Valentino Bags. These products among others are then shipped from the U.S, to Europe, Asia and beyond where they would not have been shipped otherwise without the held of Grabr.

For those of you who do not know, Grabr is a peer-to-peer marketplace via the web and iOS app.  Both Android and iPhone users can download the free app to start their journey around the world.

For those seeking a delivery, all you have to do is log into the app and place an order. Travelers then will be notified that your order is close buy and needs to be picked up. If this concept still seems confusing, just think of it as an Uber for international packages.

Some of the perks of using Grabr include:

  • Shop and browse any items from around the world
  • Create custom orders for any item you want
  • Make delivery offers
  • Meet friendly locals wherever you travel
  • Get paid securely through the app
  • Receive regular delivery updates/reports
