A central element to Geev, our banana system helps keep things fair on our platform.

What are bananas for?

Bananas allow you to pick up an object:

  • You'll use a banana when you contact a person about their donation.
  • You'll use a banana when you want to unlock the address of an item found on the street.

They give everyone an equal opportunity to get stuff:

  • Having a stockpile for one time use bananas ensures that people focus on donations that they really need.

What's the maximum number of bananas I can have? 

When you sign up for Geev, you'll get 3 bananas.

Then, you can get as many bananas as you wish by doing certain things :

  • Each time you give away an item, you'll get 2 bananas
  • Each time you invite a friend, you'll get up to 2 bananas
  • A Geev Plus membership will give you 60 bananas a month
  • You can purchase banana packs directly in the store

Where can I see how many bananas I have and how can I increase this number?

On Android On iOS
  1. Take a peek at the number next to the banana in your list of offers.
  2. When you click on it, you'll see how many you have.
    If you find yourself bananaless and you're super interested in a certain object, click on "Buy bananas" to increase your number!



  • You can get as many bananas as you wish. The counter will stop at 99+ on the main page, but if you surpass 100 bananas you can continue to grow your stockpile. You'll be able to see them on the banana screen!
  • There is no expiration date for bananas, so you can accumulate them to use at specific moments in time, like when you move, or use them right away.
