Have you ever experienced that problem where you see something you want on the internet, but can’t find it anywhere locally? Then what you usually do is look for someone you know who will be travelling to get it for you. Maybe Muber can help you with that.
What is Muber
Inspired by the Filipino padala culture, Muber is a peer-to-peer package delivery system that matches people who want to get stuff available elsewhere (from faraway places), with travelers going to those areas. So, how does it work? After signing up and signing in, just post what you are looking for and from where, entice a traveler with a “reward,” and once you both agree, they can get the item for you. The item could be anything from shoes in the US, to console games in Hong Kong, or smart phones from China, as long as it’s legal.
What’s in it for you
If you are the buyer, you get the item you want. it’s secure because Muber will hold your money and will only release it to the traveler once the transaction is complete. No delivery, no payment. For the traveler, he/she can make a little extra money on the side, and maybe even make a new friend.
I like the idea behind Muber. It looks promising – especially if you want to buy a lot of stuff not available here. And if you’re the type who travels a lot, then this could give you a little something extra for you to pocket.
The brainchild of two Pinoy entrepreneurs, Muber is based in the US but has a local office in Marikina. Check out Muber at https://muber.com/.
