Business model

Zing currently earns revenue by selling custom delivery boxes for DJI drones.

When the platform is released, Zing will earn money as part of a three sided marketplace. It is much like the Uber Eats model, except our drivers are drone pilots. Restaurants will pay a $299 monthly subscription to allow drones to pick up items from their business. Users will pay a $5 fixed fee to the drone pilot.

Competitive advantage

Uber Eats just entered the drone delivery space today with their initiative Uber Air. Wing received their Part 135 certificate last month and have already started making drone deliveries in Blacksburg, VA. Both of these companies are missing a critical piece that will prevent them from scaling quickly.

Zing is utilizing the network of over 100,000 commercially certified drone pilots across the United States. The vast majority of these pilots use and trust DJI drones. Our software is already compatible with any DJI drone right out of the box. Other companies are struggling to reinvent the drone that the 6,000 employees at DJI have already perfected.
