For Owners

Earn money by renting out items you already own.
  • Take a photo

    of the item you want to rent out. Provide a brief description and set pricing.

  • Choose a delivery method.

    Decide whether you want to deliver the item, and if so, if there is an extra charge and whether there are any restrictions on delivery (e.g, will only deliver within a 5-mile radius)? Alternatively, specify how and when the item can be picked up by the renter.

  • Receive a booking request

    via email and app notification.

  • Review and accept the request.

    Give the item to the renter by either delivering it or making it available for pick up.

  • Get your item back

    by either picking it up or getting it delivered to you by the renter.

  • Rate your experience

    and tell us and other users about the renter and the transaction.

  • Get paid.

    Once the transaction is complete, we will process the payment and deposit the money into your Stripe merchant account.

While you can charge any price you want, here are some Daily Price recommendations for the most popular items:

  • Crib: $10 - $50 / day
  • Stroller: $15 - $40 / day
  • Car Seat: $12 - $25 / day
  • High Chair: $10 - $25 / day
  • Bike: $15 - $35 / day

As the owner, you can choose to deliver your item within a certain mile radius for an extra charge (or for free). You can also make your items available for pick-up by the renter. You will be able to specify delivery/pickup conditions when you post your item.

In the nearest future, goBaby will be offering delivery via integration with several delivery service providers.

Once your item is listed on goBaby, it will be searchable by potential renters. When a renter is interested, they will submit a booking request, which will be delivered to you via email, push notification, and in-system alert. You will review and respond to the request by either accepting or rejecting it. If you accept the booking request, you will be able to provide the renter with delivery/pickup information and notify the system when your items is picked up. You will notify the system again once your item is returned, so that we can process the payment.

goBaby uses Stripe Connect for payment processing. We require that each item owner creates their own Standalone Stripe Account. This way, goBaby never receives the transaction money, instead it gets deposited directly into owner's account. Further, Stripe helps us with Identity Verification and Tax Reporting.

When you list your item, we recommend that you specify a Security Deposit fee that will cover your item in an unlikely event of theft or damage. At present, goBaby does not offer insurance, but we are working on this, and hope to be able to offer extra coverage soon.

We charge item owners a transaction fee of 8%.
