It’s been a few years since we featured a site that lets consumers solicit help with their weekly errands, but recently we came across one that offers a slightly different twist. Now following in the footsteps of Sherrands, RunMyErrand and DoMyStuff.com comes NeighborFavor, a site that lets college students earn cash by helping each other with their shopping.
Focusing primarily on fast food and grocery delivery, NeighborFavor lets college students see where their friends are going shopping and then request that one of them pick something up while they’re out. Along the way, they must indicate not just what they need and when they need the items, but also how much of a “tip” they’re willing to pay for that convenience. Once a neighbor has accepted the request and delivered the needed items, payments are made via PayPal and neighbors can rate each other’s performance. A 3-digit PIN is assigned to each favor to ensure that payments are made accurately as agreed.
Apps for Android and iOS are coming soon, says CBZG Studios, NeighborFavor’s Massachusetts-based maker. A concept to bring to students — or other closely affiliated consumers — in your neck of the woods?
