I can vouch for this company, I use it. Someone posted about them on here, and I said I'd make a thread about it. But because anyone that does something different is clearly an Uber shill / employee I didn't post my review.

They ship you all the items, they rotate the brands, its an easy system for pax. They just go to a website and punch in your box number and they select their stuff.

I've been paid every single time they said they would pay me, they have an easy to access earnings page from the phone. I'm making exactly what they say I'd make a month. Also Hi Kevin, I'm the other one.

You Cargo Do know it's Illegal for TLC drivers to sell anything out of their Car...Right ??
It was Illegal to advertise Juno. Now they want you to advertise Cargo. Lmao. I think Drivers should sell their own items in their own cars.
After all, Drivers are the ones making car payments, paying insurance, paying for repairs.

Price list?
What items are displayed for sale?
We provide each driver with a different set of items, such as snacks, gum/mints, energy shots, advil, phone chargers, and more, and almost half of them are completely free to your passengers. When one of your passengers wants to purchase an item or get a free sample, they just go to www.cargo.menu to see the prices and and can check out in under a minute.

I enjoy selling in the backseat. Should I consider / do I need a middleman? How do your MBAs help my selling?
We make the whole process seamless for drivers - we provide you with all of the products for free, ship everything to your door whenever you're running low, and give passengers a fast and easy checkout process. We even pay you to give out free samples, so you can make extra money on more trips.

You have a match and you enter a wagon with a candle, a lamp and a fireplace. Which one do you light first? Cargo
The match

Seriously can we sell this without fear of TLC? If this gets big I can see enforcement down the road unless you have a loophole.

We're all for each driver doing what's best for themselves, and we designed Cargo so that it would make you even more than selling on your own. We provide you with the products for free so you don't have to spend money out of pocket, and we pay you to distribute free samples, so you can make that extra income on even more rides. We also save you the time and hassle of going to purchase items to sell and ship everything to your door.

I hear your concern about the TLC, but we've talked to the commissioner and were told the TLC has no interest in regulating us. As we get bigger, it's going to be vending/food safety agencies that are more interested in regulating us, and we've followed all the legal guidelines to do everything with them by the books. Cargo drivers do hundreds of thousands of rides a month, and we've never had a single TLC issue come up.

Who stands to face the penalty? Drivers or Cargo? Do you have it in writing? How many drivers do you have with Cargo in NYC?

Glad YOU feel safe. I can see a buy and bust go down like those snots at the airport "how much for such and such?", then BAM badges out.

I like the idea and I'm not trying to be difficult but in NYC you better be looking out for #1 and follow the rules or you will pay the price.
