Fees and Charges

For Employers

Projects

Jobvir is free to sign up, and allocates a set monthly amount of 8 non-cumulative free posts to list a project, receive bids from freelancers/virtual employees, review the virtual employees ‘s portfolio and discuss the project requirements. If you use up your allotted free projects in the month, you may purchase more. The purchase price depends on the package you choose.

There are three package types:

FREE

You get 8 FREE projects each month. Each project will be displayed for 15 days. These are non-cumulative, so the maximum free projects you will have in any one month is 8.

STANDARD

This plan includes 15 projects. Each project will be displayed for 30 days.

PREMIUM

This plan includes 20 projects. Each project will be displayed as a featured job for 40 days.

Payment Return Fees

Should an Employer for any reason choose to withdraw any amounts deposited, the following payment return fees will be applicable:

Transaction fees incurred for using Credit Card or PayPal.* $0.30 USD + 2.9% of deposited amount
 Handling fee:  1.5% of deposited amount

Arbitration Fees

The arbitration fee for a payment dispute is $10.00 USD or 10%, whichever is greater.

Our dispute resolution system is designed to allow both parties to resolve issues regarding payments amongst themselves without arbitration.

After 4 days of a dispute being filed (or 7 days if the dispute is filed by the employee) either party may elect to move the dispute to paid arbitration. The other party will then have a further 4 days to agree to pay this fee and for both parties to submit any final evidence. If the other party fails to pay within time, they will lose the dispute.

The arbitration fee will then be refunded to the winner of the dispute.
