How does Yohgo do this for me?

Yohgo assures trust by providing the platform to govern fairness in the exchanges.

The Yohgo fairness platform improves everyone's life by extending what people already do for their family and close friends to others in the wider Yohgo community. Yohgo makes sure that the favours you do for others are returned to you. This circle of favours can be infinitely extended. It creates many opportunities to exchange lifts and services. This permits exchanges with people you do not yet know without them taking advantage of you.

Yohgo does this using a points system called Yohgos and not money. Transactions in Yohgos are not financial. Since no money is involved, there is no income. Yohgos are not convertible to any currency. We only hold records of individual agreements for the time necessary to allow for safety and dispute resolution. To reduce the costs of maintaining the service, Yohgo only keeps details of your transaction information for three months. This is in keeping with our Privacy Policy and to comply with Data Protection Legislation.

Using Yohgos as a means of keeping score, you can barter lifts or services you have to offer for any other lifts or services you require. Yohgo is great for communities but it is not altruism.

The favours you do for others will be returned to you.

The trust will build as the platform expands. This way everyone benefits.

Leverage your skills. What can you do? When and where can you do it?

What are you good at? Where are you going to? What do you like doing that a neighbour in your local, national or international community can benefit from?. By putting you in touch with the person who is seeking the skill or service that you are offering, Yohgo enables sharing, exchanging, trading, and a return to the community values of old in the process. Yohgo through Yohgos makes sure there is a reciprocal favour so your efforts are not just taken for granted.

If you drive the same route every day you could, at little inconvenience, give someone a lift. They can either return the favour directly to you or to someone else in the group. Your use of your Yohgos lets you determine whether it is you, your family, relatives or friends who benefit.

For real time ridesharing we have built an Android App. This lets you easily earn Yohgos while you go about your daily travels. For the user who gets the lift it saves almost the total cost of the bus, train or taxi fare. It feels good already!.

You can also use the web version on your computer, tablet or Iphone.

You decide when you are available, what jobs you take and from whom. You decide the value of the service you offer.
