Inviting a Driver to the Mobile App

Email Invitation

To invite a Driver via Email, add an email address on the Driver profile and then check the 'Email Invite' box > Create (or save). You can select the Email Invite box before or after creating the Driver profile. If your Driver deleted the email, you can resend the email using this method.

The Driver will receive an email with instructions on how to download the app from the app store. If the Driver has already downloaded the Whip Around mobile app, when they select 'Click to Login', they will be automatically logged in with their username and password. If they don't already have the mobile app downloaded, you will need to provide their username and password to them and instruct them to download the app using the instructions provided in the email.

SMS Invitation

To invite a Driver via SMS, add a mobile phone number on the Driver profile and then check the 'SMS Invite' box > Create (or save). You can check the SMS Invite box before or after creating the Driver profile. If your Driver deleted the text message, you can resend the text using this method.

The Driver will receive a text with a link to download the Whip Around app. If the Driver has already downloaded the Whip Around mobile app, when they select 'tap this link', they will be automatically logged in with their username and password. If they don't already have the mobile app downloaded, the link will direct them to download the mobile app from the Apple or Google Play store and then the Driver should return to this text and click the link to be logged in.
