This paper reports on a study of motivations for the use of product service system category in the sharing economy. We interviewed service providers of these systems, profit and non-profit in the tourism context, to obtain different perspectives and to determine if providers are matching their system designs to the drivers of the new economy. We found that the motives implicit in providers’ explanations of their systems' designs experience are extremely positive and reliable. Providers interviewed do not place emphasis on intrinsic motivations such as environmental sustainability. We discuss the divergent provider’s motives and will suggest future work implications for the design for collaborative economy community.
