FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

GENERAL

WeUse is an app that makes it easy, fast and profitable for employees in a company or residents in housing associations and dormitories to help and share/rent things with each other.

Here, employees/residents can upload any resources they want to share with their community and find resources others are willing to share/rent to them. It can be anything from a drill to a board game.

Yes, you can always create a community free of charge for up to 20 people.  All users are expected to have relevant insurance covering borrowed and rented items.  In Denmark, we are privileged that our home insurance, which 98 out of 100 Danes have, covers borrowed and rented items for up to 30 days.

Contact your administration about starting a collaboration with us. This will allow us to add your community and create a community code, after which you will be able to use the app. You can also write directly to us and then we can contact your administration.

Great, you’ll find us on the App Store or Google Play, download the app, create an account with very little information, and enter the community code you’ve been given from your organization, typically sent out by email. Now you’re ready to become a WeUser! Remember to verify your account via your email!

WeUse is sold to organizations that want to strengthen unity and create a more sustainable community. Therefore, it is completely free to create a user and start sharing if you are part of a community.  When you share an item through the app, we do not charge any fees.  You decide whether you want to charge for rentals or just want to lend.  In the case of a rental, 100% of the amount goes to the owner.

ACCOUNT CREATION

Your private address can be used as a pick-up point and will guide the user to your address in case an item needs to be picked up or returned.

Click on the button “Forgot password” and confirm with your email, then a new password will automatically be generated and sent to your email. We recommend that you go to your profile and change this code to something you can remember immediately.

Your work address can be used as a pick-up location and will guide the user to your address if an item needs to be picked up or returned. Here the company can have several addresses or blocks, therefore, fill it in as detailed as possible so that it is easy to meet.

Ensure that you have neither active rentals nor rent outs. Your account cannot be deleted if you have something to hand in or receive.  
Then go to your profile and click on settings. Click Delete user and confirm with your password.
Your account will be permanently deleted after 7 days.

WeUse can recover your account up to 7 days after your request to delete it. Contact WeUse at info@weuse.dk.

SECURITY / INSURANCE

We care a lot about your safety! Our app is made so that it is easy and transparent to see other users’ ratings. This gives you an overview of how a given person treats other people’s things. At the end of the rental period, both parties will give each other a rating, it will be the first thing other users can see about the person. Therefore, users cannot hide behind profiles that you can see on other sharing platforms.

For each rental, a contract is made between the renter and the item owner, where the condition of the product can be written in. This makes it easy to check and document the condition after a rental.

Contact the owner and inform him/her about the damages.  If an item has had a deposit, this will not be repaid and the rental will be completed by both parties. Then you contact your home insurance who will ask for documentation about the item you borrowed/rented. Send WeUse’s contract. After that, your insurance will help you.

The contents insurance covers borrowed and rented items for up to 30 days.  (NOTE: does not apply to small boats, canoes, kayaks, wind and kitesurfers).

Contact the user and hear if there is a reason why the item has not been returned.  Typically, there is a logical explanation.  If you do not hear back from them, contact us, we have information on the user and can contact the person directly. In the worst case, it will be considered theft and we report this to the police and provide information so that the police can take action.  After that, your home insurance will cover the loss.

EXPLORE

The items you see in explore are items uploaded by other users who are part of your community. Therefore, these are people you know, and are geographically close by. This makes it easier to share rather than to buy new, as you can just meet at work or drop by your neighbour to pick up an item.

Click on the plus and create a “Need”: Write what it is you need, if you want to pay to borrow/rent the item and when you need it. You can also upload a picture of the item you are missing. Everyone else in your community will get a notification that you’re requesting an item. If someone uploads what you are searching for, we’ll send you a notification.

You can search the top of the explore page, here you can also use the filter to look for a specific category or filter by price.  If you can’t find what you’re needing, you can create a “need”.

RENTAL

The maximum rental period is 30 days. This is due to your danish home insurance covering borrowed and rented items for up to 30 days.

You will receive a couple of notifications: 24 hours, 8 hours and 30 minutes before the rental/lending period starts.

When the item is to be returned to you, you will be notified: 24 hours and again 30 minutes before.

Write to the other party through the app, maybe the person is a little late. If the person does not show up, you do not need to do anything, and the request will be deleted after two hours.

When there are less than 24 hours to pick up an item and you have been prevented (illness, accident, etc.), inform the other party/person. Two hours after supposed pickup time the request will automatically be cancelled.

When an item is uploaded, you can choose if you want to charge for the rental and the preferred form of payment either cash or MobilePay.

When an item has a price on WeUse, payment can be made either through MobilePay, the app helps you with the amount, recipient, and text. You can also pay with cash; it is entirely up to the person who owns the item.

You pay at the start of rental, here a deposit can also be paid. You can see the preferred payment method when requesting an item.

TAX

Write the profit in box 20 on the annual statement and field 250 on the advance statement.
