The service is setup as device rental.
– A deposit is made for each device
– We ship the devices to the developer through Fedex (because they insure)
– Every week a charge is deducted per device from the deposit.
– Developer returns devices.
– Security deposit, minus the weekly charges, is refunded.
– Developer now knows how well his/her app performs on other devices.
– IF devices are broken or renter never returns them, then the appropriate repair is deducted from the deposit or we use the deposit to buy new devices. :)
We’re still starting up, so devices are made available on demand.
