FAQ

How do I post a project?

You get a minimum of 5 FREE projects each month depending on your profile level. Each project will be displayed for 15 days. These are non-cumulative. Once you’ve used these up you can purchase more. You will be given the option of which package you want to use when you post a project.

On Jobvir, prices are quoted in US Dollars as a reference point, but all transactions occur in Bitcoin.

Once a dollar price has been agreed upon between Buyer and Service Seller, and the buyer chooses to accept the bid, the buyer will make a payment in Bitcoin at the exchange rate of USD to BTC at that time. That is what the Service Seller will earn (minus referral fee commission).

Each project requires the following information:

Category: Choose the most appropriate category.

Project Title: Give the Project a descriptive title to easily appear in searches.

Description: Give an in-depth breakdown of what you require.

Attachments: Supply any supporting documentation for your project. Remember this will be publicly available. (A maximum of 5 with a maximum size of 20mb each).

Skills:  What skills do you expect the Service Seller to have.

Project Budget:  What is the budget for your project to give Service Sellers an idea of the scope and remuneration to be expected.

Location:  if the project requires location specific Services.

Milestone: If you want to track the process of large projects, you can use the milestone feature to track specific waypoints to measure the projects progress. Type in a milestone and hit enter to save it and create the next milestone text box.

Once you’ve posted a project, prospective Service Sellers can bid on the project, offering a price and timeline for its completion.

You can also search for Service Sellers directly and invite them to bid on one of your projects by clicking on the ‘Invite Me’ button. You can then select which projects you want to invite them to and then click ‘Invite’. If they accept you’ll be notified in your notifications feed.

How do I bid on a project?

You get a maximum of up to 5 non-cumulative free bids a month (Some promotions will allow you to earn more monthly bids) . If you use these up, you‘ll be able to purchase more. You’ll be notified of this whenever you bid on a project and your bids have run out.

On Jobvir, prices are quoted in US Dollars as a reference point, but all transactions occur in Bitcoin.

Once a dollar price has been agreed upon between Buyer and Service Seller, and the buyer chooses to accept the bid, the buyer will make a payment in Bitcoin at the exchange rate of USD to BTC at that time. That is what the Service Seller will earn (minus referral fee commission).

If you find a project you can fulfil, click the bid button. You’ll need to make the buyer an offer for a price and how long it will take you to complete the project. Be realistic, as undercutting your fellow bidders, only to create delays or not get proper remuneration for your work will ultimately work against you in ratings and future work with the same buyer.

You can also make any comments or pose any questions to the buyer in your bid application. The buyer will then be able to contact and discuss these with you before accepting your bid.

How do I know if someone bid on my project?

Once a prospective Service Seller has bid on your project, you will be notified in your notification feed (the bell at top right), you will see the bids listed underneath the project on the project page, along with the amount, duration and any notes the Service Seller has about the project.

How do I know if a Buyer accepted my bid?

Once you’ve bid on a project and the Buyer has accepted it, you’ll be notified in your notification feed (the bell at the top right). You can then open  the projects’ workspace, which will be your virtual office, where you can chat and share files with the Buyer.

How much do I make?

How do I get paid by the Buyer?

Buyers who decide to accept your bid will pay your bid amount. Once a Buyer accepts your bid they will pay the US Dollar equivalent, at the exchange rate at that time, in Bitcoin. (Budgets and bids are quoted in US Dollars for reference, but all transactions occur in Bitcoin.)  After the transaction, all amounts pertaining to that project will be quoted in the bitcoin amount paid. 

Once the bid has been accepted you can then move into the Workspace to chat and work with the Buyer.

If you are awarded a project, we charge you a referral fee relative to the value of the selected bid, of 2,75% of the accepted bid amount.

This winning bid amount is held by Jobvir for the security of both Service Seller and Buyer.

Once a project has been marked as completed by the Buyer, you will receive the Bitcoin bid amount, minus Jobvir’s referral fee, in your Jobvir balance (see Fees and Charges).

You can then request to withdraw all, or a portion, of your Jobvir balance (with a minimum of the equivalent of $50) to your crypto wallet. We charge an admin and network transfer fee equal to the average bitcoin network fee at the time of transfer or minimum fee of $1.75 to transfer your withdrawal Bitcoin amount to a crypto wallet of your choosing. Withdrawals may take up to 7 days to process. A Fastrack option is available for a fee. There may be additional fees levied by your wallet provider or the crypto currency transactions exchange itself.

*We reserve the right to alter the network fee charge in cases of extreme  BTC volatility.

Disputes:

Should a Buyer or a Service Seller at any time decide to cancel an accepted bid project, the project will move into a disputed phase whereby Jobvir will investigate and make a decision on which party wins the dispute (See ‘Disputes Resolution’).

How do I pay Service Sellers?

Once you accept a bid you need to pay the amount of the bid upon acceptance. Budgets and bids are quoted in US Dollars for reference, but all transactions occur in Bitcoin. Once you accept a bid for the US Dollar amount, you’ll need to make a payment, in Bitcoin, for the equivalent US Dollar amount at the exchange rate at that time.

Once you’ve accepted and paid, this notifies the Service Seller and you can then move into the Workspace to chat and work with the Service Seller.

This winning bid amount is then held by Jobvir for the security of both Service Seller and Buyer. Only once you have marked your project as complete, will funds be released to the Service Seller.
