Verifying your account

In order to list or rent a Ride on Spinlister, it is best that you verify your identity in one of 3 ways:

  1. Your Mobile Phone
  2. Facebook
  3. Twitter

Another way to verify your Spinlister account is via credit card. Spinlister will securely hold all credit card information in case of damage, loss, or theft.

Although verifying your account is easy and gives you access to all of Spinlister’s goodness, we'd also like to recommend you to enhance your profile by adding a profile photo of yourself and writing a little about yourself. A nice profile photo of your face and some sentences about walking on the beach goes a long way in building trust with Renters. It will also come in handy when you’re meeting up to drop off a Ride for the first time!

Do I need to be verified?

The more information you have on your profile, the more likely you are to secure a Ride confirmation. The internet can be a sketchy place, and you don’t want to come off as a creeper, thus we highly recommend you upload a profile picture and verify your phone number. Ideally, you’ll also share your Twitter handle and/or your Facebook connection. All this will make your transaction feel much more comfortable, you’ll feel better renting out your Rides and renting from others.

What if I don't have a Facebook or Twitter account?

Totally fine! We know Facebook and Twitter aren’t for everyone. Just do yourself a favor and upload a great profile picture of your smile, and verify your mobile phone number. When you request a Ride or respond to a request, you could always share your Airbnb, LinkedIn or WOW profile via messenger to help the other party trust in you.

We will be adding more ways for you to verify your identity in the future.
