New Features of Yo!Rent Multi-Vendor Rental Software

The rental economy branched off into various niches in the past decade and introduced digital growth opportunities for thousands of rental businesses. To keep up with the budding opportunities and fulfill the demands  of business owners in diverse niches, we worked hard to develop the new version of our robust rental software Yo!Rent

The new version, Yo!Rent V3 adds an abundance of new features and enhancements such as industrial design, payment gateways and color psychology to streamline your business. 

New Features and Enhancements Made in Yo!Rent V3

Identifying the common digital transformation objectives, such as business exposure, automation, streamlined management and faster revenue generation, our team introduced several new features and enhancements in Yo!Rent 2.0. 

Below, we have categorized them all:

Rental Management Features

Pick Up Module

There are various instances when customers prefer self-pickup in comparison to delivery. It happens when renting out products from the same city and especially in automobile niches. To support self-pickup, we added the following features in Yo!Rent 2.0:

  • Custom self-pickup slots
  • Warehouse and store linked pickup locations

Document Verification

Automobile and heavy equipment rental businesses require appropriate verification before renting out equipment to customers. To support this Yo!Rent has the following features:

  • Document verification at the checkout process
  • Mandatory custom fields
  • Admin and vendor defined documentation requirements

Rental Agreements

Different vendors on a rental marketplace can have separate terms and conditions. To sanction those, Yo!Rent V3  offers the following functionalities:

  • Custom rental agreements for each and every vendor
  • Rental agreement eSign at the checkout process

Custom Cancellation Policies

Rental businesses incur a loss on order processing and delivery charges if a customer cancels the booking before the beginning of a rental period. New features to overcome this rental challenge are:

  • Custom cancellation policy with increasing charges
  • The admin can pre-define the cancellation charge for every cancellation period

Product Inspection

Normal wear and tear are expected on rented equipment. However, accepting the product without an inspection can lead to monetary disputes with the vendor on return. Features for product inspection on Yo!Rent are:

  • Reporting of normal wear and tear, existing damages or malfunction
  • Product acceptance with reported defects. Rental period will continue as booked
  • Reporting and product return/cancellation

Rental Add-ons

Customers often purchase or rent some extra services or goods to use the main rented product. For example, ink for printers, throws for furniture, dry cleaning for dresses and insurance for automobiles. Yo!Rent  supports these add-ons by:

  • Offering optional services and products during the checkout process


Map View

Map view makes it easier for customers to browse nearby listings for quick renting. Yo!Rent supports a map view filter for all listings. 

Product Comparisons

Rental products require evaluation in more categories than new products, for example, modifications, defects, usage, terms, etc. With the help of product comparison features, customers can make a fine selection:

  • Comparison up to 4 products at once
  • Create custom attributes for comparison (vendor and admin)

Industrial Designs

Business owners get industry-specific designs that use color psychology to build brand reliability and trust. The industrial designs included in Yo!Rent V3 are equipment rental (for renting out heavy equipment, medical equipment, party supplies, outdoor gear and more), automobile rental (for renting out cars, bikes, boats, RVs and trucks) and dress rental (for renting out designer dresses, bridal wear and costumes). On these designs, owners can:

  • Change color schemes
