Borrowing

Once you sign in, you can browse lots of items nearby available to borrow from your neighbors. Simply tap on "Borrow Now" and a borrow request will be sent to the lendal.

The lendal will respond to your request ASAP with their meeting location. You then will have 15 minutes to meet them, unless you both agree to a later time.

Once you pick up the item, the rental time will start. You will only be charged the daily rate each time a new 24 hour period begins. For example, if you borrow an item for less than 24 hours that runs $4/day, you'll only pay $4 total. If you keep the item for 49 hours, you'll owe the lendal $12.

When you're done borrowing the item, launch the app, pick which item you want to return and tap on "Return It". This lets the lendal know you're ready to drop it off.

Lending

Here's where you can make some extra cash each month by lending out things you don't use very often.

Lendal lend out items they've added into their locker. Your locker is a collection of items that appear in different categories when other users are browsing the app in your area.

You'll get a request from borrowers when they want to borrow one of your items and you'll have about 20 minutes to approve the lend request. Once you both set the time, you'll meet in the next 15 minutes, exchange the item, and then start the rental time by tapping on "Begin Lending".

Once the borrower is done, she or he will send you a return request. Once you meet them at your chosen location again, you simply tap "Item Returned".

Where's my money? Once your balance reaches $10, you can request a payout and the funds are automatically transferred to you.
