Introduction of Posting Fee

August 24, 2007

As of today we have introduced a £4.95 posting fee chargeable to Buyers online when posting a project. The reasons for this are the following

  1. to ensure that all projects posted are genuine and are taken seriously (no spamming)
  2. to enable us to enhance our service offering: all Buyers posting a project will be contacted by our customer service team to assist them in their search and guide them through the use of our site  
  3. to enhance quality control: winning bids will be reference checked (where applicable) by us, to give further confidence to our Buyers that they will be get a quality and reliable service
  4. to give out contact details to Buyers: as of now, with every bid placed Buyers will have access to the Provider’s contact details if they wish to get directly in touch. However, if work is settled offline then this will not be reflected in your track record on the system: the more work you do through the system, the more track record you build (plus ratings and feedback), enabling you to secure more business in the future, plus receiving our “Payment Protection Guarantee” – so it’s in your best interest to use the system.  

As part of the fee, has introduced a “Bids Guarantee Scheme” whereby we guarantee at least one bid per project posted to the Buyer, otherwise they are entitled to a full refund. So start budding!

With these measures in place, we are enhancing the value we bring both to our Buyers and Providers. We help you find them useful.  If you have any comments or suggestions, as always we are here to listen to them.

    I’m just starting here. And it feels like an awesome forum.

    I just wanted to give a friendly “how’s it going” to all of you here.
