Frequently asked questions
We are the game-changing peer-to-peer delivery app. We connect Customers needing items delivered to our community of Fetchers who collect and deliver them. GoFetch is part of the Sharing Economy and is unlike traditional dispatch couriers in every way: we have very few overheads and a 24 hour work model. This makes for a super flexible work /life balance for our Fetchers and very competitive pricing for our Customers!
We are currently available in the greater metropolitan areas of Melbourne and Brisbane, Australia and will be coming soon to Sydney.
GoFetch operates using a peer-to-peer platform and therefore does not require its own bikes, cars or vans. By connecting people who are already on the move with others that need items delivered, we reduce the overall costs of deliveries. We pass these savings directly to you, allowing GoFetch to provide the best value delivery rates possible. We are cheaper than most traditional couriers and our average fetch price was $8.25 in December 2015.
We love our Customers just as much as we love our Fetchers. We are always happy to hear back from you guys with any comments you may have. Feel free to shoot an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org or chat with us on the live web chat on our website!

In short, and generally speaking, you can Fetch almost anything. Our Fetchers travel by bike, car or van, and can deliver most things for you. For ideas on how to ‘deliver your life back’, check out our Facebook or Instagram pages.
Yes - GoFetch guarantees your items to the value of $200 per fetch. We perform rigorous background checks on our Fetchers, so you know your items are in safe hands. It is also in the Fetcher's interest to do a good job because you rate them! Money is not transferred to the Fetcher until you confirm receipt of the goods and close the job.
And unlike traditional dispatch couriers - and even some of the other apps - we allow full traceability of your Fetcher: you can follow them via GPS in real time!
You can use the 'Report Issue' button to highlight any problems in real time.

GoFetch is not your employer so our own insurance policies do not extend to Fetcher activity. Likewise, your customer will approach you in the first instance in the event of loss or damage to their item. For this reason, we suggest you research your own insurance requirements - especially Public Liability in the event of an accident.
GoFetch is a tech dashboard connecting you with customers but transaction payment is from them to you. GoFetch takes a cut for providing the platform but the financial transaction is between your customer and your own ABN. For this reason you are responsible for your own tax affairs. GoFetch does not collect charge or collect GST. We urge you to get tax advice - especially in relation to GST thresholds and the total amount you are putting through your ABN from all of the apps you use.
Yes you can. As your own boss, you can work for anyone else you like. It's the gig economy! Many of our existing Fetchers are also Uber drivers etc. You are in full control of your own business.
No you don't. We have caps and polos shirts available if you would like to wear one, but it's up to you. As your own boss we can't tell you what to wear, but in terms of dress code and T&Cs you have accepted by working as a Fetcher, you need to be presentable and have a smart casual dress code.
It is important you understand all elements of the job before accepting it - including pick-up and drop-off locations and the desired delivery time frames. Reading the customer's instructions in the Additional Notes field is especially important as often these are very specific. GoFetch would prefer you took great care when accepting a job so you don't need to cancel one.
In the event you accept and cancel more than three jobs without a valid reason, you could be suspended from accessing our platform.
