Code of conduct

 

 

While posting a task! 

Do not share your personal contact information in the task (email, phone number, social links).

If a personal information is shared, your post will be automatically deleted and the account shall be suspended.

 

Why do we do this?

In order to prevent spammers to contact you directly or indirectly, it is essential

that the contact information should not be publicly seen in the task.

 

If you want to accept the offer from a Buddy!

Do not communicate with anyone externally through other mediums than our internal messaging area.

After adding your credit card details to your profile you can accept the offer.

 

Why should you do it?

When you accept the offer the money get securely submitted through Stripe and will not be sent to the Buddy until the task is completed. 

 

While meeting the Buddy!

Always ask for the valid identity card form the Buddy before the task starts. Check whether it is the right person who was assigned the task.

 

Why should you verify the identity of the Buddy?

For safety and security reasons, it is very important to start the conversation after verifying the identity.

 

After the task!

 

Rate and complete the task

Once the task is completed, rate your experience on the platform and click the finish button in your dashboard.

 

Why should you do this?

Rating is a reflection of credibility of the Buddy. If your Buddy is awesome at the task, just spread the word to other users who could be benefitted. At the same time, only if the task is marked as complete, the Buddy will be paid through the platform.
