Renters trust owners to take good care of their belongings, and owners trust renters to be careful with what they use. We do all we can to foster an environment of trust on our platform.
Owners can talk to potential renters or even meet them in person before letting them use their belongings. Borobear’s RM3k Owner Guarantee also protects owners for personal liability and property damage.
Owners receive guaranteed payments while their item is occupied, even if the renter stops paying.
Owners are paid out through Stripe, an online payment processor trusted by Google, Spotify, Target, and millions of other businesses.
Owners have to connect with Stripe once when they first receive payment. After that, payments are automatically deposited in their account.
