  • Publication number: 20230016917
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus disclosed is run by a business entity that provides the service of buying and selling used vehicles or a business entity that provides the service of leasing vehicles. When the business entity buys a first vehicle having a first coating film including an easily removable layer applied thereon from a first user or receives such a first vehicle returned by a first user, if the first coating film was removed at a specific site, a controller of the information processing apparatus executes a processing for giving an incentive to the first user, The value of the incentive to be given to the first user is calculated on the basis of the length of time elapsed since the time at which the first coating film was removed at the specific site.
