Amazon vs. ECrent and the sharing economy
Amazon is ubiquitous in the world of online shopping, but it’s not the only option for buying and selling products. The sharing economy, powered by sites like ECrent, is quickly catching on as a sustainable, flexible alternative for consumers around the world.

ECrent is aiming to become the world’s largest online rental platform and includes everything from cars to houses to clothing. It is growing by the day and offers many of the same features consumers have come to love from Amazon.

Here’s the breakdown on how Amazon compares to the sharing economy and why you might want to consider a site like ECrent before you make your next Amazon purchase:

Unlimited possibilities

Amazon’s rentals focus on movies and other types of media, while just about anything you can think of are available through the sharing economy and ECrent. If you love Craigslist, Freecycle, and Airbnb, then ECrent will be right up your alley.

You can plan an entire trip through ECrent — everything from a hotel room to a car to all the gear you’ll need for traveling. And, the best part is that you do not need to purchase any of it. You can rent these items only for the period that you need them, then return them when you are finished.

Booking a hotel through ECrent can also provide cost savings over booking through the hotel’s website or other travel sites. Plus, you have the convenience of booking everything for your trip all in one place.

This is one of the reasons people love Amazon so much; the site has everything. The same concept applies when it comes to booking a trip through ECrent.

Bottom line boost

Not only does renting allow you to live a carefree lifestyle, you can make money while you’re at it. You can list an item for rent through ECrent just as easily as you can rent something yourself.

Because Amazon has so many offerings and it’s so easy to buy something, you probably have at least a few items lying around that you no longer need or want. Turn them into a profit by listing them for rent. Others can benefit from using them, and you receive a return on the investment you’ve already made. 

Of course, this doesn’t just apply to things purchased from Amazon. You can list just about anything for rent from your home to services like photography and coaching. If you have a passion for helping others, ECrent allows you to nurture by offering your services while making money at the same time. You can even start your own business by creating a customized online store for your targets, in less than 10 minutes.

Environmental footprint

Renting is also a great option if you are looking to reduce your environmental impact. By choosing to rent, you’ll be lessening the impact of consumption on the planet. 

Thanks to modern innovations, many goods have become cheaper to produce over the years. However, the methods used to make them are still bad for the environment and many of those items will end up in a landfill once the user is finished with them.

Renters can save money by renting instead of buying and become more sustainable consumers, too. By using ECrent, you can use items for only as long as you need them, and then pass them along to someone else.

The sharing economy

Speaking of the sharing economy, it’s growing by the day as more and more people take on the renting lifestyle. In fact, rentals accounted for nearly all of the new households established in the United States between 2010 and 2016 according to the Urban Institute.

The sharing economy will only continue to grow as more and more people work remotely and have the flexibility to move around from place to place. 

With ECrent, these digital nomads can find a place to stay, rent a car to get around and rent furniture and other items from the same convenient site. It can all be returned when it’s time to move onto the next place.

As part of the sharing economy, ECrent connects renters with other like-minded individuals to ensure smooth interactions throughout the rental process. ECrent also allows users to know exactly where their items are coming from and establish personal connections in the rental market.
