Picktup connects buyers to travellers. Buyers, who can’t find some products in their local cities, or aren’t willing to pay huge shipping fees, will have a way to find travellers to bring the products they want. Buyers will enter their requests, and the travellers will enter their trips to the system.

Picktup will do the matching based on the information provided, and notify both sides. Our responsibility is to get them together and provide them an easy to use, safe and secure environment. Afterwards, they can agree on specifics, and complete the transaction. In the end, the buyers will reach the products they want with a small shipping cost, and the travellers will earn extra money while travelling.

Picktup will make the shopping experience cheaper and much more fun! Some companies in the industry like airbnb, couchsurfing, blablacar etc, showed us that people have started to trust each other. So instead of using traditional intermediaries, they started choosing doing ...

Picktup will make the shopping experience cheaper and much more fun! Some companies in the industry like airbnb, couchsurfing, blablacar etc, showed us that people have started to trust each other. So instead of using traditional intermediaries, they started choosing doing business directly with individuals. We also want to take advantage of the shared economy. We’ll connect people, and let them create their own experience.

There is also a problem we indirectly solve. Shipping companies pose a huge threat to our future. The number of cars, trucks in the traffic, cause billions of dollars of waste in fuel and time. Some countries even pass laws to prevent their entrance into the city centers. When Picktup customer base grows, it will start showing an impact on the economy and environment. We would like to change online shopping globally.

in my country always try to buy some products from other countries because is cheaper but sometimes its hard to find people that they can make you the favor to bring stuff that's why i think pick't up can help every one who need it!

I find it as a new way of meeting new people and making people happy. It's one of the best examples of new conversation model, human touch combined with digital media. I really find the idea exciting and hope the project has the chance to grow. I personally use the site and also the Facebook page to keep track of travellers to see if I can order anything. I wish we had the site when I was living away from my hometown. Anyway, it's a great site, brilliant idea and a delightful experience. I recommend the site to everyone at least to try it once as a traveller or as someone expecting something from somewhere else.
