Our Pick Your Day messaging platform is easy to use. All dialogue between you and your guests happens through our messaging platform and is hidden from public view.
Pick Your Day is the platform, but it’s you who’s the boss. It’s only you who decides the contents of what you should offer and how much it should cost. You decide how accessible your activities & experiences should be, and can choose whether your services can be booked directly or only upon request.
We are available by phone or email to help answer any questions, worries or thoughts you may have about being a Localist via Pick Your Day.
Most of us have a hobby, a passion or something they love to do outside of their regular job. Very few of us ever thought we could turn this passion into a source of income. You may not want to give up your day job, but the idea of perhaps teaching an evening class, or sharing your passion can make for an extremely rewarding spare time activity, as well as give you some extra money on the side.
Pick Your Day is not just for the foreign tourist eager to explore a city. It’s for you, your kids and your neighbor as well. Sharing your hobbies is what helps enrich local communities and gives people another reason to fall in love with where they live all over again.
To make and receive payments through Pick Your Day, we opted to use Stripe as a provider of these services. Stripe is is the best software platform we found for running an internet business. Stripe handles billions of dollars every year for forward-thinking businesses around the world and we are proud to offer their services for handling our credit card transactions and for our direct transfers of money to Localists.
We have designed our payment system to benefit both the guest and the host. A Localist will only receive a booking confirmation after it has been fully paid for. As a Localist, you will never have to worry if you are going to get paid. Pick Your Day holds onto the your payment until the activity has been completed, and then the money is released to your account during the next payment period. This gives us time to make sure that guests are happy with their experience and feel the activity was as described.
We’re not just an activity platform, we’re a community. Pick Your Day provides a great opportunity to meet people who have similar interests as yourself. The weird, the wonderful, the nerdy and the jock who secretly loves knitting; let’s have some fun.
