201504212015590.4QCOSTARICA – At a cost equivalent to a Big Mac combo (without the calories), GoPato is your personal assistant in Costa Rica, from 10am to 11pm everyday.

What do you need? A load of bread from the bakery, medicine, clothing, food from any restaurant, have something picked up or dropped off … whatever, using the social media platform WhatsApp, GoPato says it will get it for you.

The company, 100% Costa Rican, offering service throughout the country through its personal assistants they call “patos” (ducks), most who are students working part time, are willing to become your personal assistance to earn extra money. In some cases, the company has developed business alliances with a number of firms.

GoPato says a call is a free and before you confirm their order, customers will be told the cost of the service and delivery is pretty quick, depending on the customer’s request.

“We have been asked to obtain all sort of things, the most common from supermarkets, clothing, food, electronics, even pets, drivers, internet articles, motorcycles, or pick up tickets,” José Navarro, founder of GoPato, told La Republica.

The company was founded in June 2014, going live only two weeks ago and already filling more than 500 orders.

All payments for goods and services and service fees are handled online, via the Stripe gateway, one of the most secure online payment systems.

For now, the service is available only for iOS (Apple) devices, but by the end of April on Android as well.

For now the service is only available in Spanish. No word if and when it will be available in English.
