Connects people who wish to send packages with people traveling to the same destination

SendAlong connects travelers with people who wish to send packages to the same destination. The two parties would be matched by our platform and would meet in a public place for the package to be handed off to the traveler. The traveller would then deliver the package in exchange of money.

This cuts travelling costs for travelers and provides senders with an affordable and convenient alternative to the traditional shipping options. You may send larger items for cheaper, you would no longer have to pay a premium for overnight or 2nd day deliveries and you would have the flexibility to plan & change delivery dates, location and time according to your needs.

It is a good idea. But, how do you plan to handle the security issues like malicious senders and thieving travelers? Is it just based on user's trust? I am very much interested.
@CrazyCryptoz We are working on implementing a user vetting processs. Each user will be checked against known terrorists lists, no flight lists, anti money laundering lists etc... This will be to ensure that users meet our community standards before they can use the platform.

In addition to that we will also add an insurance policy to all trips. The community will also be designed so it polices itself. Users will be able to flag and report malicious users/activity and each user will receive a rating from the other party after a transaction. Users who are reported/receive bad ratings will be banned from the community.
