Send and receive packages from our automated kiosks. (YC W13)
Swapbox allows customers to send and receive packages without waiting in line at the post office. We’re Amazon Locker for all the other e-commerce (+ Amazon). These services run asynchronously, users simply visit a neighborhood convenience store (7-11), grocery store (Safeway), or gas station (Shell), or any other frequented location we’re in. No coordination. No waiting.
Each standard box configuration can make $1K / month just off of receiving packages (with 65% margins, more as we scale), with additional compartments and services like shipping, the potential is even higher. Swapbox users are hooked – We have extremely low churn (<1.5% monthly).
The opportunity: $15B lost just on missed deliveries in the US per year (postal itself is a $1T market). Every top 10 metro has the demand for at least 500 Swapboxes.
20+ Swapboxes in SF so far, but that was just the test! We have partners in place to scale fast with $0 upfront capital.
