Frequently Asked Questions

What makes a great gig listing? arrow-right
The gig is a defined task, with a pre-determined outcome. If you ensure your scope of expected work is detailed, with a level of quality specified, this will reduce any miscommunication/misinterpretation when gig workers review.
Are gig workers verified? Can I trust them? arrow-right
All gig workers must be identity verified by Stripe when registering as a gig worker. This adds an additional level of trust to our platform. Because we offer a reputation service, you can also see all historical work conducted by the worker. This quickly builds trust within the marketplace, but also removes fraudsters and scammers. Any behaviour that breaches our platform standards results in those worker being removed from our platform.
I can’t get hold of the gig lister or worker after the gig has started? arrow-right
If after repeated attempts to communicate with the gig lister or gig worker via the chat portal, please get in touch with us. We need to see attempts on the chat portal to act on this.
How long does it take for me to receive my money after it has been released? arrow-right
Stripe can take up to 4 - 7 working days for our payment provider to deposit the funds into your account after they have been released.
Can I report offensive or harassing behaviour? arrow-right
Yes, we take very seriously any behaviour that is threatening, violent, aggressive or harassing. We recommend all communication is through our chat portal, so we have an audit of this. Please contact us through our contact page.
