  • great infographic, congrats !
    1 comment on the “handles payment” icon : I think you should differentiate the sites that handle payment of their commission only (eg the drivers pays a 10% commission online that is kept by the site, and the 90% left directly to the owner), and those sites that collect 100% and then transfer their part to the owner – meaning users don’t need to exchange money.
    keep going !

  • Good idea Paulin, and thanks for your input! I didn’t realize there are companies that require their payment separately. We were just thinking that companies either handled 100% or 0% of the payment. I’ll figure out how to incorporate that in to the next version.

  • Great inforgraphic! Soon, a new private carsharing company from Germany, carzapp, should included ;-) carzapp is the first private car sharing platform in Europe, to provide a hardware solution (ZappKit), which was developed specifically for the purpose. TThe ZappKit allows individuals to rent out their cars spontaneously without manually handing over the keys and earn money with them when they are not in use. Vehicles can easily be opened and closed with your own smartphone. carzapp connects car owners and renters via an online portal or an app and provides the perfect car for every situation. Car owners decide themselves when, to whom and for how much, they want to rent out their car.
