Hi, dear Hosts!
I have a couple of questions for those, who uses Wimdu in addition to AirBnB service.
As we know, AirBnB have their very strict verification process, which requires a LOT of personal details. For me, as for guest AND as for guy, who works in IT and know what consequences uploading of government issued ID process may have, is important my privacy.
As i understand, Wimdu haven’t such strict policy related with verification.
So, there is questions:
How and what you feel and how you handle situations if you get booking request from Wimdu from unverified person? Without photo for example, without verification (no government issued ID is uploaded for example)?
If you get booking request from both - Wimdu and from AirBnB for the same date, what service do you prefer to use in first place?
I like AirBnB, but this requirement of uploading passport (for example), to 3-rd party servers (you know, that verification is handled by Jumio company, not AirBnB itsef, right?) prevents me from using it. I will be happy to introduce myself to the host, chat with him/her, describe myself, but uploading passport is big “no-no” for me
Found Wimdu, clone of AirBnB and found that some hosts successfully used it in addition to AirBnB.
