Over the summer we’ve transitioned to a more sophisticated system here at SHARE.
While previously we were a cash only outfit with a slightly laisez-faire approach to late returns on items, we have now implemented a system which processes payments by card that is making the whole operation a lot more efficient.
The change not only allows us to process your transactions quicker, but also means late fees are automatically collected. It may sound punitive at first, but rather than being such it actually just means we get more items returned punctually. This leads to fewer disappointments for members who hope to borrow an item which is supposed to be returned on a given date.
Indeed, we’ve already found this to be working successfully. Items are being returned on time a lot more often, and there are far fewer cases of other members being let down by a previous borrower.
We encourage all of our members who have not yet converted to the card payment system to come in and do so. It’s very simple and once you’ve converted there’ll be no more standing around waiting with your item while we process your transaction. You’ll simply come in, ask for your item and we’ll hand it over and click a button to accept your donation.
By encouraging more punctual return of items and creating a better-respected system, the items you reserve will be likely to be in stock ready for you to pick up on the date you have requested. Winners all round!
Our system is created by MyTurn and payments are securely processed using Stripe.
Late fees are charged to encourage borrowers to return items so that all borrowers have as much variety of choice as possible. The income from these late fees, along with other income, goes towards the running of the shop.
We’re always looking for new and improved stock at SHARE. If you have items you think would be a good addition to our inventory then please do let us know.
We have a wishlist page which is updated with our most wanted items.
Similarly if there’s an item you’d like us to stock that we don’t have then send us a request and we’ll add it to the wish list.
You can contact us on our shop phone during opening hours (07983639611), drop us a message via our contact page or pop in when we’re open: Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays between 10am and 4pm and Saturdays from 10am until 12 noon.
Large tent, approx 3m diameter. Quick and easy to put up: 1 pole in centre, 1 at entrance, plus pegs all round.There is no flysheet with this tent.
August 2018 – New set of pegs added.Tent condition: The tent has now been borrowed many times and is not in great condition but perfectly usable. It has been repaired on-the-go with gaffer tape in at least six different places, and there are some ink marks on the interior. The tent was sprayed with re-waterproofing spray to help keep it weatherproof, but it would not be the best tent if camping with a family in the rain.
