What is a classifieds marketplace?

A Classifieds marketplace is a website portal where you can advertise your goods or services on offer and find potential customers. The transaction is offline, you deal with your customer directly, you set the terms and conditions and you are in charge of taking the payment directly from the customer. Beehiveit is a classifieds marketplace focusing just on hire and rent.

Are items protected for loss or damage while on hire?

We are a classified platform where you can list your items and advertise for free of charge. The sole responsibility for any loss or damage lies with the owner of the item. To ensure your items are protected against loss or damage, recommend the following:

  • Only lend to people you feel comfortable with. Beehiveit verifies the members email address. But additional precaution should be taken. As a precaution, check  & take copies of their ID
  • Take a cash security deposit to the value of the item hired until safe return of the hired item
  • Put a rental contract in place
  • Take insurance cover (check with your insurer that it covers you for hiring the item out to others)

Can I accept payments from my customers on Beehiveit?

No. You are in charge of setting your terms & conditions. We do not charge you any commission on the transactions therefore you are responsible for managing the end to end transaction.
