Zipments is a new web based service that wants to help you get items delivered from one corner of the city to another in the quickest possible way. Going to a courier service and getting it done can take more than a day. Through Zipments, you can post your job, set a price and wait for a local guy nearest to your place to bid on it. Once you accept his bid, he’ll be at your place in no time. Zipment takes 10% of the price you pay as the commission.
Although the service doesn’t conduct background checks on the people wanting to join as couriers, it does require them to add information like a mobile number and a verified Paypal acccount. There’s also an iPhone app for the tool that makes things easier.
- Post delivery jobs and set your own price.
- Quick intra-city delivery through local couriers.
- iPhone app available, Android app coming soon.
