No, we make sure you can still rent or list items from any location and via any device! That’s why we built the Fuze mobile app, which can be downloaded onto both Android and iOS devices.
We are only operating in Toronto currently, but we have exciting plans to expand this service. Watch this space!
Escrow is a financially secure service that ensures the safety and security of transactions between Renters and Listers by protecting the money paid during the rental process. It is a form of security deposit where 80% of the retail value of the item will be held securely until the item is safely returned to the Lister.
For example, if a dress has a retail value of $400, then $380 will be held in Escrow as a security deposit. This money does not leave the Renter’s account and is lifted once the item is successfully returned.
Unfortunately, we currently do not have a delivery option for items rented at Fuze. There are two options for Listers and Renters to exchange items:
1.PenguinPickUp has retail locations across Canada that allow our users to drop-off and pick-up items. To learn more please see the designated Renter & Lister sections below.
2. Meet up: Listers and Renters are able to meet-up face to face in a public location to exchange items.
Renters select their pick-up option on the Product Detail Page.
Any disputes over the arrival, condition or the return of the rented item will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to raise a dispute. We offer free accidental damage insurance for every item covering minor incidents, such as small rips and tears to the item. Major damage to the item may result in the Renter reimbursing the Lister for the full retail value of the item. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions for further information.
We recommend that you upload a sharp and clear cover photo of your listing. This could include yourself or a friend wearing the item. Multiple photos of the item are recommended, including a close-up photo in order to see the design clearly.
Fuze only accepts items that have a retail value over C$250. We do not recommend any high street labels, unless it was an exclusive collaboration e.g. H&M x Isabel Marrant).
Fuze takes a flat 20% service fee on all items transacted.
