Shyp was a shipping company that operated in the years 2013–2018. The company picked up, packaged, and shipped items through USPS and other major carriers. The company was founded in San Francisco by Kevin Gibbon, Joshua Scott and Jack Smith. Until 2017, the company operated in New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Philadelphia.
The company raised a total of $62.1 million in venture-capital funding, with the Series B investment led by investor Kleiner Perkins. It provided a mobile app by which users could enter a package's pick-up and destination addresses and upload a photo of the package to be shipped.
Shyp was one of the few on-demand companies made up entirely of employees, not independent contractors. In 2015, the company converted its couriers from independent contractors to full-fledged employees.
In 2017, in an effort to become profitable, Shyp laid off the majority of its staff and ceased operating in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. In 2018, Shyp CEO Kevin Gibbon announced that the company would shut down and lay off all its employees.
