Bargain hunters frequently cross borders in search of good shopping deals, but Backpack is a peer-to-peer network that's designed to make overseas shopping more convenient.
Backpack appeals to two types of users: shoppers who wish to acquire a specific item and travelers who will be venturing to a certain part of the world. Through this P2P shopping service, shoppers are able to get items overseas for a more inexpensive price, while travelers who source these items are eligible to earn money for their trouble.
While e-commerce has made it quite easy for any web user to acquire products from around the world with just a few clicks, currency conversions and shipping fees can be exorbitant. In the spirit of the sharing economy, both users are able to work together for mutual benefit.
