Earn 30% Every Ride

Put your unused bicycle on our bicycle platform and earn 30% every time a Pedaru user uses your bicycle. You will remain the bicycle owner. Example: If Pedaru charges ¥100 per ride, you will earn ¥30 when your bicycle is used and Pedaru will keep ¥70.

Sell Your Bicycle

We will pay you a one time payment of up to ¥2000 for your unused bicycle. You will stop being the bicycle owner, and thus you will not earn anything when a Pedaru user uses it. Example: If Pedaru charges ¥100 per ride, Pedaru will keep all of the ¥100.

Support An NPO/NGO

You do not want to earn money from your unused bicycle, thus we offer you the choice to donate 10% of our rate to one of our partner NPOs/NGOs! Example: If Pedaru charges ¥100 per ride, Pedaru will donate ¥10 to the NPO/NGO you chose when the bicycle is used.

“I graduated from university recently. Instead of leaving my bicycle behind on campus like most students do, I decided to put it on the Pedaru platform. I am earning money from it every month without much effort. Thank you Pedaru!”
