The app takes some getting used to, but when you get used to it, it's got the actions I'm looking for in a rental business. Support is quick and helpful!!
It looked really capable, but didn't work at all. I pasted the tag onto my detail page (tried both the template and the section template) and it just wouldn't appear.
Sorry to see you had a bad experience with the app. Due to the variations in Shopify themes, it is impossible for an app to work consistently with all themes right out of the box. If you had reached out for support, I would have been happy to help fix any conflicts that may exist with your theme. Do please feel free to reach out for any assistance you may need.
This is app is VERY limited in functionality, especially considering price. Note that for Shopify Plus users, this app offers only one price point: $99/month!
Showstoppers for us (other than price)... It has no backend calendar to view bookings, no way to edit/view/delete bookings, not even a notification email for bookings (that I can find). The "Manage rental schedules" feature advertised on the app page is very misleading. So the management side of the rental process is wholly missing.
There is also no support for variants (e.g. a rental product with multiple sizes/colors/types).
What did work well was the simplicity of blackout dates and rental policies. It was easy to select weekends as blackout dates, for example, so that rentals could be not started or returned on a weekend.
Exposed Online Rentals
Based off of the preview I figured this app would be the best fit for what I was looking for. It was a tad difficult for me to try on my own but honestly that's just because I wasn't reading correctly. Anyhoo I reached out to their support team and Tolu was BEYOND helpful! VERY fast in response, so much patience and now I have a great addition to my spotify page. Highly recommend!

It's a good app for rental where it allows you to block off certain dates. Still needs improvement and one of them is allowing refundable deposits to be accepted within the app. This suggestion was gladly welcomed and apparently being considered as one of the near future enhancements. Cant wait to see and experience it within the app. Tolu has been very responsive and helpful with my concerns. Thank you!
This is a bad workaround for rental in shopify. The app uses the difference in date to create a quantity in Shopify. For example, you rent from Feb 1 to Feb 3; the app just adds the item to shopping card for quantity 2 ( Feb 3 minus Feb 1 ). The user can still change the quantity to 1 or 100; it doesn't make sense to use this app when users can increase or decrease the quantity....
Borrow Her Look
This app is the best aesthetic I have found for helping me with my rental business needs to enable customers to book dates for hire. The team at streamthing are very responsive and helpful. I had a heap of questions they were no trouble at all. Thank you Tolu
