TEL AVIV, Israel and SAO PAULO, July 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Tripda, the leading car sharing platform and eRated, the global trust certification solution, announce their partnership integrating eRated's trust solution in Tripda's global marketplace. With the partnership, Tripda is the first car sharing marketplace to add a definitive trust and security solution for its users.

eRated's solution helps users gain the comfort needed to start ride sharing as eRated showcases the driver's transaction histories from more than 30 sources including other marketplaces and social networks such as eBay, Amazon, LinkedIn and AirBnB. The solution enables Tripda's global network of users to import (not rebuild) their life-long, web-wide trust credentials into their Tripda profile so users can gain confidence immediately by scanning their previous seller/buyer interactions.

Tripda selected eRated as its trust partner after eRated's 15 marketplace integrations proved its ability to boost user trust and transactions by 150%. Solution integration is simple and gives drivers easy customization abilities. eRated's intuitive backend has made it easy for Tripda to roll-out the security solution worldwide instantly, removing the heavy efforts previously needed to rebuild the trust and security of potential riders on a new platform.

The eRated partnership is crucial to overcome the sharing economy's key growth obstacles: security and trust. The deep eRated partnership will enable Tripda to rocket-charge user-trust and security in its marketplace, so that potential riders feel more comfortable and drivers start enjoying more trusted rides.

"We selected eRated as our strategic partner to build Tripda as the most safe and secure ride sharing marketplace in the world. Security is of paramount importance to our users and eRated gives us the authoritative, 3rd party trust-certification our riders need to feel comfortable," says Eduardo Prota, Tripda's Co-founder.
