Earn money while you travel around the world. Sounds like a dream? Well, AirShoppr app will make this a reality. Find out how you can make money here.
As the world is getting globalized, there are more and more people travelling around the world. Budget airlines are everywhere which make traveling so affordable compared to a few decades ago.
Meanwhile, a new tech startup called AirShoppr will help you earn money while you travel. How is this even possible?
They’re currently developing a mobile app that connects shoppers to travellers around the world. Essentially, any shopper from around the world can post a request for the item he or she wants from a particular country. A traveller who’s interested to help the buyer and is planning to travel to the buyer’s country can offer help. Travellers earn money through the tips given by the shopper.
The sample scenarios below explain how AirShoppr mobile app works:
Julie who lives in Hanoi, Vietnam, wanted to buy a Starbucks city mug from Bangkok to add to her collection. Since the particular mug can only be found at Starbucks in Bangkok and it’s not sold online, she posted a request on AirShoppr mobile app. The mug costs US$20 but she’s willing to pay US$35 for it.
Kevin who is currently in Bangkok had installed this app on his smartphone before his trip to Thailand. He launched the app and saw Julie’s request. His hotel was just next to Starbucks and he was willing to help Julie get the mug. He accepted Julie’s request. Julie completes the payment and the AirShoppr app holds the payment while notifying Kevin that he can now buy the mug for Julie.
Kevin went to Starbucks and bought the mug. The next day, Kevin flew to Hanoi and informed Julie to meet at the airport. Upon meeting, Kevin handed the mug to Julie and then she marked on the app that she has received the item she requested for. Kevin received the payment including the additional tips Julie offered.
Martin is an expat from Uruguay who works and resides in London. He loves to drink a type of tea (mate) which is only sold in South America. George, who also lives in London is in Uruguay right now for a business trip.
While George was there, he launched the app and saw Martin’s and a few other South Americans based in London requesting for the same type of tea. They were all willing to pay $50 for the tea which is sold for $20 at a local supermarket in Uruguay. George accepted all requests, purchased the tea and brought them back to London. He earned almost $100 by helping them.
In short, AppShoppr is a great app for shoppers and travellers because:
- You can purchase almost anything locally or internationally
- No international shipping
- Fast delivery
- Personalised shopping experience
- Travellers can make money while travelling simply by helping people buy things
Currently the app is still in development stage but due for release soon.
