Muber, an Atlanta, US-based startup, has a take on the sharing economy to get travellers to become virtual delivery companies.

The one-year-old platform works by allowing a person to post a request (to a traveller) to buy products from a destination and receive it back, as well as travellers making their trip plans available online to help people discover them.

Once a traveller accepts a request, the traveller buys the product and organises delivery, whilst Muber arranges the fees and transfer of money.

The company was founded by brothers Leo and Life Lofranco and Francis Plaza.

The idea came about after Lofranco and Plaza travelled to more than 15 countries over the past two years and were asked by friends and family to buy products for when they return home.

(Leo) Lofranco tells us that his father would usually ask him to buy CDs in the US to bring back to the Philippines, while friends might ask for beauty products from South Korea.
