Nothing. It's free for all gig posters & bidders. Always.

We charge a small fee to service providers only if they win & complete a gig.
It's simple. You can either browse through the local marketplace and hire direct or you can post a gig and let service providers place custom bids.
Service providers can create as many local services as they like in as many cities as they service. The more services you create the more exposure you will receive. There's no limit.

They can also place a bid on any open gigs in their area.
No. We do not accept any payments at all, ever. You pay your service provider directly at the time of service.

The service provider will pay us our fee after the gig is completed.
No. We love everyone! This is a free & open local marketplace. Everybody is welcome & encouraged to participate. Just be weary of who you hire. Look for bidders with the most vouches from other users.

Let's face it.. some people are crazier than a $3 football bat.
Vouches. The more vouches a worker has the more trust they have in our system.

Bidders can get vouches from friends, family and past employers. The more vouches they have the more they're found on gig.bid.
Simply send your friends and family to your entity page and have them click the "Vouch" button. Anybody can vouch for you but only once. The more vouches you receive the higher you will rank on our site, everywhere.
