There is no commitment to apply if you are sent a project.

It is important to consider there is healthy competition for most projects, so if you are sent a project that interests you, it's recommended to respond as soon as you can.

Payments for projects awarded through our system must be paid through our payment system.

All payments will be made into your weliketowork.com account wallet.

There are no fees for withdrawing funds from your wallet but there is a minimum withdrawal amount of £10.

Payment is normally upon completion of your project.

Although, for longer, ongoing projects, you may wish to agree a payment schedule directly with the client.

The only thing we insist on is invoice payments go through our payment system.

Yes. Once you have been hired for a project, you can contact them directly.

Invoice payments are the only thing that must go through our payment system.

We do recommend any discussion relating to a project happens in our messaging system. This is so we can help with any dispute resolution.
