A startup is connecting online shoppers with nearby hosts willing to accept deliveries for them

No one looks forward to coming home and finding the dreaded missed delivery note. Or even worse, a stolen package. All this diminishes the point of shopping online and even keep many from considering it.

A startup based in New York wants to change this with eNeighbr, a platform that connects online shoppers with trusted neighbors and local businesses who are available to receive packages for them. The mechanics are pretty simple: find an available eNeighbr host through the website or app and put in their shipping address before checking out on any online merchant. Hosts can be picked based on delivery date range, rating, proximity and pick up availability. Package pickup is on demand and each transaction is insured.
