Toolsity uses PayPal as payment engine. The total transaction amount, defined as being the price per day/week/month times the rental duration booked, is authorized at the moment the renter confirms the booking request by proceeding with the payment. The payment is charged once the owner confirms the transaction. The owner has 3 days to confirm the rental request. If the owner declines or does not respond, no charge is made to the renter.
Prices & fees
The price displayed on the article listing is the price set by the owner and due for the renter.
The service fee to cover the service costs of Toolsity is set to 20% of the total transaction amount, with a minimum of 0,20 EUR. The payment processing fees are charged by PayPal and are a combination of a percentage of the total transaction price and a fixed fee. For Belgium domestic transaction, these fees are 3, 4% + €0,35 EUR (according to PayPal’s publicly available information)
The service fee and the PayPal fees are both automatically deducted from the owners/beneficiary’s proceeds.
Any transaction requires both parties to accept an agreement before the transaction. That transaction agreement further outlines the rules regarding the rental terms (i.e. rental conditions, the refunds and cancellation, the guarantee, the lister obligations), the renter obligations (i.e. usage, return, repossession, prohibited use, damage, payment, repairs, ownership) and the risk and liability terms (acknowledgement and assumption of risk, waiver and release, indemnification, third party claims, insurance, physical condition).
