about this episode

The concept for Shyp is simple: take a picture of your stuff, Shyp picks it up, packs it up for you and sends it off. You pay $5 for the pickup plus the cost of postage. Just launched in San Francisco, Shyp has its own warehouse and drivers – its Shyp Heroes – to speed up the 1st mile of shipping. How do they stack up in a crowded delivery and transportation space that includes Postmates, Grubhub, and now Uber RUSH? Cofounder and CEO Kevin Gibbon tells Jason where they stand now, and about their future expansion plans. Plus, why eBay sellers, Etsy vendors and even large enterprise companies are going crazy for the service.
