Founded in 2013 by Kevin Gibbon, Joshua Scott and Jack Smith, Shyp is a mobile app (Android and iOS) that provides on-demand shipping services. Users upload a photo of the item to be shipped, then enter pick-up and destination addresses and their contact and credit card information. The picture is sent to Shyp’s network of contracted employees (Shyp Heroes), one of whom will pick up your item, put it in a padded bag and take it to be packed and shipped.
