• How Gaifong Works

    Follow these easy steps to get started!

  • Listing an Item

    1

    Get the app

    Available for both iOS and Android.

    2

    Snap a photo

    Whether it's a camera lens or a VR headset, easily list using the app, with no upper limit.

    3

    Set a price

    Set and manage your own prices – we recommend around 5% of the item value as the daily rental fee – for example, US$40/day for a digital SLR camera.

    4

    Promote item

    Your item will start appearing in search results immediately. Share on social media to get even more exposure!

  • Renting an item

    1

    Get the App

    Available for both iOS and Android.

    2

    Find Item

    Type in the thing you need in the search box (e.g. "tent") to get a list of items owned by neighbours closest to you.

    3

    Choose a Date

    Select start date, end date, and send your rental request!

    4

    Pick up item from Owner

    Once the owner accepts, you will be able to chat further. Arrange a time to go pick-up the item from your neighbours, or meet at a mid-point (subway stations are great!)

    5

    Enjoy!

    Enjoy and return when done! Thank you for choosing Gaifong.

  • About payments on Gaifong

    When you reserve an item, you will be prompted to enter your payment details. You will be charged only if the reservation is accepted by the Owner. All sensitive information is handled by Stripe, a secure, PCI-Level 1 (higher rating) payments processing system, making sure your information never reaches, or gets stored on our servers.

    We accept Android Pay, Apple Pay, PayPal, and all major credit cards. If you're an owner, your earnings will be paid out to you via PayPal, PayMe, or automatic bank transfer (HK only).

    Owner Guarantee – HK$5,000 coverage per item!

    As an Owner, the worst-case scenario is that the Renter steals and runs away with your item, or if there is severe damage. Aside from claiming damages from the Security Deposit, when you rent your item through Gaifong, you will also automatically qualify for a HK$5,000 compensation amount, in addition to the Security Deposit. Such cases are extremely rare, but it's always good to know there's something to fall back to! As Gaifong grows in scale, this Guarantee amount will also likely increase.
