A popular startup that’s trying to kill the post office will now send a delivery person to your house so you can return online purchases

Shyp, the startup that brings couriers to your door so you never have to visit a UPS or a post office ever again, is rolling out a new “returns” feature for its app.
Shyp launched just under a year ago, and a spokesperson for the company says that even though people use it mostly to ship gifts to friends or for online sales — think Etsy or eBay sellers — a growing percentage of its users were using Shyp for an unintended purpose, one that Shyp wasn’t designed to serve: returning items bought online.
So Shyp, which says it’s seeing 20% month-over-month growth, embraced the unexpected use case and decided to build a custom product inside of the existing Shyp app dedicated to returns.
The process isn’t unlike Shyp’s shipping procedure. It takes just a few taps on your phone.

Then, you select “Return Online Purchase.” This is the new feature.

Enter your order number and select your reason for returning the item. Shyp charges a $5 flat-rate pickup fee, regardless of how many items you’re shipping or returning.

 Then, select whether you’d like to pay with your order number or a prepaid label.

Whenever you’re ready, tap the “Pickup Now” button, and a Shyp courier will show up in roughly 20 minutes to whisk away your returns. You’ll get a confirmation from the retailer when they receive your package.
