Do you have Christmas presents to post? Well hold your horses and step away from the Post Office. The creators of sharing website TuShare have just launched Sendle.com, Australia’s first carbon-neutral courier service designed to “power the people economy” and make it easier for us to share unwanted goods, trade with fellow humans, and give our money to small businesses.
It’s like the PayPal of delivery services: all you need is an email address and a codeword and you can send or receive a package from your front door. There’s no standing in queues, the price is fixed at either local ($9.75) or interstate ($17.60) and you can nominate whether the sender or receiver pays the delivery. You don’t even need to write an address on the box/bag/parcel if you don’t want to. (Read on to find out how you can send your Christmas gifts for just $5).
