Peership, a personal delivery app, has officially launched in San Diego, Calif., giving users a new way to make money by making deliveries on trips they’re already taking around town. With the Peership app, users can list an item for pickup and delivery across town, or request an item to be delivered to them, depending on their needs.
For instance, if someone purchased a couch on Craigslist, but didn’t have a truck to pick it up, they could list the delivery opportunity on Peership, paying someone with a truck to pick up the couch and deliver it.
Peership charges a $0.99 fee for each delivery request, and users can review and rate deliverers when their services are completed.
In a statement, Peership founder, Michel Choueiri, commented on the app:
We want to wring the many inefficiencies out of logistics by matching people who need specific items at a specific time, with people [who] can grab it for you on their way and earn extra money.
