The market is abuzz with the recent development of a ride share clone that everyone wants to get their hands on. Whether it is to simply book a ride or to make a huge business out of it, carpooling has come a long way in the last couple of years.
With service sector emerging as the new cash cow, more and more people have put their faith in carpooling and travel services. This is probably the biggest reason why car sharing and ride share clones have picked up in popularity.
What does a ‘Find a ride’ website work like?
The operations of a Ride Share Clone are pretty simple. It allows car owners and ride seekers link at a common platform where they can offer a seat and book a ride to conclude their journey in a much more cost effective and comfortable way. In order to make sure that everything goes the right way, the website becomes the medium through which the car owners pass on the details about the make and model of their car, the preferences in travel and so on and so forth so that the ride seeker can go through these minute but important details BEFORE taking up the ride or booking a seat.
Is an online business of this sort really safe?
Well, I have got to be honest. I have more than a decade’s experience working in the online industry. I can tell you one thing for sure and that is, the internet is very vulnerable to quick and easy scams. However, there is one very practical and safe way to avoid any scam and go on with business in the right way. Pay only for your money’s worth. In this case, pay only for the website script.
Because of the height of competition in the market, today is the day of the consumer. There are so many people selling website clones that you can choose from them based on your suitability. I would suggest that you go for a company that makes you pay only for the script and gives all other perks and services for FREE.
For instance, you can claim a lifetime of website maintenance and minor bug fixes (of course apart from 24 hour support) when you purchase the clone. See, basically what I am getting at is that if you own the site, there is no way anyone can con you, right!
Since you are the admin, all monetary transactions happen through you. You decide the upper limit on the charges that one can keep on a seat. You also get to decide the percentage commission that you want to keep per booking. The best thing is that the car owner is paid by you and not the ride seeker directly. The ride seeker pays you while booking and you then pass on the money to the car owner on successful completion of the journey. Think about it! Your website, your terms!
Just make sure that you buy the site from a very reliable source so that you don’t face any licensing issues and you get your money’s worth in terms of website quality. The best way to go about it is to take a free demo before taking the plunge!
