Abstract:
    Yneer is a peer-to-peer marketplace that connects shoppers, who want something from abroad, with travelers who are willing to provide this service in exchange for a reward.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    While purchasing products from overseas, high shipping fee and large delivery time is often the cause of major inconvenience. Also, according to a survey done by Propakistani, 73% of people suffer from custom clearance issues or having their package lost or stolen after it has arrived in Pakistan.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   The target market comprises of people in Pakistan, aged 18-55, who shop from local and foreign online stores (3.6 million in 2017), and international travelers who visit Pakistan occasionally from other countries (1.75 million in 2017). These numbers come from a report produced by LIRNEasia.
How will the solution works
    There will be two kinds of users: Buyers who need to shop goods from abroad and Travelers who will provide this service and get a reward in return. The buyer will post his/her request on the web app/mobile app and will be able to receive offers from multiple travelers. After selecting a traveler that suits him, he will pay the money(product’s price + reward) to our Escrow account. That money will be transferred to the traveler once the buyer acknowledges he has received the product he requested.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    With no local competitor, we can count Grabr and Piggybee as our competitors even though they aren’t popular at all in Pakistan. Unlike our competitors, a few extra features make our system very secure for both the travelers and the buyers making it quite unlikely for them to suffer a monetary loss.
