What is your experience with CarGo? Or selling products overall? Is it profitable? Is it even legal?

    Technically I don't think it's legal to run a retail business out of your car.  There are laws and rules against this.  CarGo people definitely know this but they are proceeding as the "market disruptor", the motto Uber used to destroy every rule in the book.

    Amen.

    I think it's genius.  It's preying on drivers to make a few bucks more, using their vehicles as a platform to sell goods and candies.  It doesn't hurt.  If they can make a repetable scalable business that is widely used, they will be a great business.  

    Customers are prone to buy things while on transit.  Think on airplanes and trains.  People buy foods, products, magazines, etc. 

    Store on wheels is a great concept.  There should be more of them...but I guess that's where the rub is.  Like you said, I am not sure if it's exactly legal to be selling stuff.

      Can I just ride my rideshare in peace?

      I am not cool with more and more services and money-making schemes they are trying to employ on these trips.  They have car ads and stuff nomw. Where do we draw the line?

      Should I be solicited to buy insurance?  What if they try to sell me massages or cigarettes What's next hookers in the backseat?

    I was going to make fun and say selling crap in my personal car as an independent contractor is totally fine.  Then I realized that you are selling food.    to strangers.

    These are the days lemonade stands are being shut down. Who knows the real answers.

    Does it even matter anymore.  Uber does whatever they want to, and CarGo is doing whatever it wants to.  Money speaks in the good ol'l USA.

    I have heard of the company but I myself have not used it. I think as a driver you sign up for Cargo and agree to be shipped a certain number of products which you then can sell to passengers in your car. I'm assuming you'd have to pay for stuff upfront, but not sure about tht. Anyone done this before? Now you got me curious
