  1. He needs a college sublease. We can help with that.

  2. John searches Leaseful and finds a few places he loves. He sends a message to each of the hosts and requests to book a 2 month stay.

  3. One of the hosts, Helen, reads John’s message. John seems like a good guy. Helen accepts the booking request.

  4. John is informed that his booking has been confirmed, and his credit card is charged for his first month’s rent. The other booking requests that he sent out are automatically cancelled, and the potential hosts are informed. Sorry, slowpokes.

  5. Move-in day has arrived. Helen receives John’s payment for the first month’s rent, straight to her Venmo or bank account. John gets the keys to Helen's place and moves in. It’s exactly as described and he couldn’t be happier.

  6. It’s been exactly a month since John moved in. That means it's time for John to be charged for his second month’s rent. No need to do anything, buddy, we've got this covered automatically for you.

  7. Helen automatically receives John’s payment. Cha-ching!

  8. It's rent time again! John has been staying at Helen’s place for two months now. He’s only staying for another 15 days, so that’s exactly what he's charged for this time around.

  9. Helen is getting pretty rich at this point. She has just received John’s third and final payment.

  10. It's time for John to move out. He simply packs up, leaves the keys as instructed by Helen, and goes on his way.
