Available grafters will show in your dashboard as they respond to your job. Normally you will get a response within the hour.

You can review the grafter’s profiles, previous work & reviews and ‘chat’ to them to pick the best grafter for your job.

Enter time to pay

You can choose to pay people securely using our online system. 

There are no extra platform fees, unless you choose to pay by card, which incurs a 3% transaction fee.

To make a payment, submit the time they have actually worked and follow the simple online payment process.

We recommend you pay people either at the end of the job for shorter jobs, or every Friday for longer jobs.

Rate and Review

After the job is complete, the client can review the worker, providing a star rating and written review.

This is an important step as it provides an incentive for people do a good job. It also helps good grafters find more work, or warns other clients about poor performers!
