Hello bike, new sharing bike service
Bike sharing service is indispensibale to me these days. I’ve found another sharing service diiferent from Mobike. It’s called Hellobike.
Recently I’ve seen these bikes many times. Because of the blue color and the word “Alipay” is written on bike, I was guessing that Alipay has just started sharing bikes. So I started to use them.
Investment Relations of Hellobike
Actually Alipay is investing to this company. The company called “Fusin” who is doing health business or “GGV” who is venture capital is also investing to this company. GGV is venture capital who is investing to Alibaba, Didi and many other famous companies. I guess Hellobike has been placed high expectation from others.
HellobikeのはじめかたHow to start Hellobike
Basically you need Hellobike’s app. You can download from Appstore if you are using iphone. In my case, I didn’t download Hellobike app. I just scan from inside function of Alipay app and scaned the QR code written on the bike. It was only 2~3 minutes to register to start using and open the key.
Do you need deposit?
Mobike and Ofo needed 300RMB(46USD) and 100RMB(14USD) for deposit. If you have high credit point in Zhima Credit which you can see inside of Alipay, your deposit will be free charged. The deposit was free in my case.
Didn’t download the APP.
At last I didn’t downlaod the Hellobike app. I’m using it from the function inside Alipay app. As I don’t have to download the app, it feels really comfortable. Inside Alipay app you can find many functions. Ofo is one of them. You can even use Didi from Alipay. Maybe in future you don’t have to download an app from appstore…
