How can I manage my personal information?

You can manage all aspects of your account from your “Profile” link. You can edit your personal information and update your location, your mobile, and any other info.

What is expected from me as a traveler?

As you are delivering a package, you should make sure that you are not taking any illegal or prohibited items and that the package arrives in same condition as you received it. Also check that you have enough space in your suitcase and pay attention not to collect extra-weight charges. Finally be punctual and enjoy your experience with the sender. Earn that high rating!

How do I find packages for my trip?

When you post a trip, you will start appearing along with other travelers to delivery requests. The sender will get a list of all travelers heading to their delivery location and will pick one to deliver the package. Travelers are ranked by rating so make sure to always do your best and enjoy the experience!

How do I make money from Shipili?

Depending on the trip length, the size and weight range of the package, Shipili will match you with a sender who will be charged a fixed fee for the delivery. You receive 80% of the fee and the other 20% are used to pay for processing, insurance fees and Shipili’s commission. Make sure to keep your rating high to get picked for the job!

Can I trust senders?

Shipili is a platform that allows people from different parts of the world to connect. Like all the Peer-to-Peer applications, there is always an issue with trust and safety. We try to put both end users at comfort by our validation process, which includes emails, social networks, SMS and ratings. If for any reason, you don't feel confident about the sender, then we suggest you don't deliver the package. But make sure to please let us know why.

How and when do I get paid?

When the delivery of the package is confirmed by the receiver, ask for your delivery code from the receiver. By entering this code into the posted job, the fee that the Sender has deposited will be released to your bank account. There is no need to worry about not getting paid, as the Sender is required to pay upfront for the service, and you will receive your charge once the job is complete.

How do I know that what I am delivering is safe to carry?

In our Terms and Conditions, we have a detailed list of all the rules and regulations that cover our users’ safety with a specific section on forbidden items. All Shipili users must accept these terms during Registration. All our users’ identities are also verified. Furthermore as a traveler, you are allowed to inspect the package and if there is anything that is of concern, you are free to back out from the arrangement.

What if the package is different than what the sender posted?

Yes you can. However we highly recommend that you know what and how large the package is before accepting an offer in order to spare yourself the trip. Make sure to add your comments and reason for your refusal in the review.

Can I cancel my trip?

You can freely cancel trips that you have posted but have not yet accepted an offer on. However once you have made an agreement with a sender, he will have the ability to affect your rating and so we advise to commit to the deal once accepted.

Can I edit my trip?

Yes you can as long as you have not accepted an offer for a delivery. Editing a trip that is already engaged in a delivery agreement might lead to negative reviews that affect your rating.

Can I ask for more money?
