Help travelers to monetize the empty space of their luggage to finance their trips or just to earn extra income.
Help shoppers in developing countries to get something they cannot find locally
People in South America cannot find locally the brands or products they like. They pay to retailers and middlemen high prices get the things they want. For example, the price of an iPhone in Ecuador will be the double of the USA price.
In our platform, we already help people with severe diseases to get medicines that are not imported by the pharmaceutical industry. For example, a girl with down syndrome that relies on marihuana syrup to stop her seizures.
Ecuador is the country in which we launched our prototype and is having a lot of traction. This business is totally scalable worldwide. Since we launched in 2017 we few similar start-ups popping out but our strength is that ours is growing by word of mouth. In less than 3 months we got over 50 travelers delivering products to over 2,000 shoppers from more than 17 destinations. In the last 3 months, we got over 20,000 visits to our website.
Market size just considering Ecuadorians and not people from other nationalities traveling to Ecuador.
The market size gets bigger as we include travelers returning to Ecuador from other destinations.
· 1.5 million Ecuadorians who travel to the USA
· + 500,000 Ecuadorians who returned to Ecuador from the USA
· + 366,000 items from online abroad purchases enter in Ecuador each month.
With the technology, we are using we are able to earn income form the registration of travelers. They can choose from the following subscriptions:
Every subscription has different advertising benefits the traveler can choose from to get more shoppers.
As we improved our technology we will be able to charge a commision fee in any order made by the shopper allowing us to get more income.
We discover that our users do not want to download another app that will be wasting the memory of their phones. We provide them with a web-based app.
In our platform currently, our shoppers are able to connect with travelers. We solve the problem by creating a big database of travelers and shoppers.
We want the funding to improve our solutions and offer our customers a better experience. We want to provide our shoppers and travelers we tools that can make any of their jobs easier like payments, a dashboard to manage their orders/trips, tracking orders and more.
We are also seeking funding to grow our users through advertising
