Accept rental requests

  • Once a user is interested in renting your tool, accept or reject their request
  • In a private message, discuss your availabilities for a pickup (time, place, phone number)
  • Note: make sure you connect your PayPal account, otherwise you cannot accept requests.
    If you do not have a PayPal account, Toolsity suggests that renters contact you in a private message. In that case, you can arrange the transaction bilaterally, but you do not benefit from the security mechanisms of PayPal and Toolsity.

Meet the renter

  • Handover your tool and explain briefly what they need to know
  • Request the cash security deposit in exchange
