FAQ

What is Hiphoster?

Hiphoster is a mobile app for spontaneous social gatherings between people who appreciate ART.
It’s a good fit for you if you’re a tourist and you'd like to experience the local scene and if you’re new in town and want to meet people. Make some friends!

What does it mean I’M HERE?

I’M HERE is the host. You’re the person who accepts the invitation and gets paid.

What does it mean I’LL JOIN?

I’LL JOIN is the guest. You’re the person who sends the invitation for joining others in their activities.

Why should I start the time tracker?

First, you have to start the time tracker for the payment to be processed. Second, it ensures your safety through GPS data. Third, but not the last, it’s your little diary which tells you how much time you spend with the ones you meet.

Do I get paid to meet someone on the app?

Yes. But we’d like to consider the flat fee as an “I’ll buy you a drink” equivalent. So... you won’t get rich.☺

How much is the flat fee paid by I'LL JOIN?

The flat fee to join an I'M HERE is 35$ per person.
Hiphoster's commission is 20% of the amount, used to run this platform.

What if I don’t get along with the person I meet?

That’s ok. Each of you can stop the meeting at any moment.
As an I’LL JOIN, you can ask for a quick refund if your activity lasted less then fifteen minutes.
You don’t have to like everybody ☺
But by being paid by your I'LL JOIN, your responsibility as I'M HERE is to try your best to make them feel comfortable. That doesn’t mean that you can’t stop the meeting if your guests are rude or impolite.
Just be kind and respectful. Always.

Do I have to do something special with the ones who join? Or to show them around?

No. Just be yourself and let them discover your world. If you’re an artist or you're passionate about art, meet people who are here because they share the same interest.

Is it safe to give my personal information?

Yes. All your information is saved on private servers and we use SSL for an extra layer of security on our website. When you sign up you agree to our Terms and Privacy.

Is the payment safely processed?

Yes. We have incorporated Braintree, a subsidiary of PayPal, a secure platform which operates payments.

When do I receive my payment?

Payments will be made every week for last week’s earnings.

Can I use my I’M HERE account when I’m traveling?

No. You can use your I’M HERE account only in your city. When you travel you can easily switch to I’LL JOIN.

Why do I need to upload a picture of my ID to have an I’M HERE account?

From time to time, we may verify accounts by asking for an ID photo. You have to upload a photo of your ID in order for us to verify your identity. We want all of our users to be real persons. This way, we guarantee our Users that they'll meet who they're supposed to meet.

Can I let friends/family use my account?

Absolutely not. This is against our policy and it will terminate your use of our app. You have the option to take people along with you on your activities, just select the number of persons you’re going with. If someone else wants to use our platform, encourage them to download our app and make an account.
