How does Grabr work?

Get started

Both shoppers and travelers benefit from using Grabr.

With Grabr, shoppers gain access to US and overseas products they can’t find or afford locally. Rather than pay high shipping fees, shoppers reward trusted travelers for delivering their items—usually between 15-20% of the item’s total cost.


At the same time, Grabr empowers travelers to monetize extra space in their suitcases. Most travelers earn upwards of $250 per trip if they deliver around 10 items.

We also have bonus programs in place to encourage you to travel more often so you continue making money.


How to Shop on Grabr

  1. Create order

Find the item you want from any online store (examples: Amazon, eBay) and paste the link. If your item comes in different varieties (sizes, colors, specs), please include this info in the "Include a note to your traveler" section to ensure that your traveler purchases the exact item you want. Then, choose your city. Grabr will auto-calculate the optimal traveler fee for your order.

  1. Accept delivery offer

Accepting a delivery offer quickly gives your traveler enough time to buy your item at the current price and pack it in their luggage.


  1. Pay securely

After accepting an offer, pay for your order with any major credit card. Your payment is put into Grabr's secure escrow account and only released to the traveler after you confirm delivery. This incentivizes your traveler to purchase and deliver your product as soon as possible.


  1. Communicate

Confirm order details like size, color and specs with your traveler. Closer to your trip, coordinate a convenient time and place to meet.


  1. Receive your order

Meet with your traveler and receive your order! Make sure to confirm delivery within Grabr so that your traveler gets paid.



How to Travel & Make Money 


  1. Filter orders

Browse order requests from the city you are traveling to. Add your trip to receive notifications of new orders.


  1. Make Offers

Make delivery offers on orders you can deliver during your trip. Grabr auto-calculates the traveler fee but you can ask for a higher amount if an item is difficult to buy or carry.


  1. Communicate

Once a shopper accepts your delivery offer, confirm the size, color and specs of their order using our built-in messenger.


  1. Buy the item

This ensures that the order is available and will arrive before your trip. Remember, when your shopper confirms delivery within Grabr, you get paid (reimbursement + fee).


  1. Deliver & get paid

Pack the order in your luggage, fly to your destination and meet with your shopper. Once he or she confirms delivery, you will get paid within 3-5 business days.
