GigsPal Guidelines


Who is a Worker and who is an Employer?  What are Campaigns and what is a task?  How everything works?

Because we call jobs "micro jobs", Workers could also be called "Plain Jobs".
Plain Jobs are jobs that could be finished quick in most cases in couple of minutes.

Make sure to read  Frequently asked questions too

 

Employers

Employers are people who need help getting something done.
Employers start new campaigns and look for workers.
Employers review work done and pay Workers.

Guidelines for Employers

When starting a Campaign, employers should comply with our guidelines:

  1. A Campaign must be well described, understandable and suitable for general audience.
  2. Must not require any illegal activities and must not be harmful in any way.
  3. Employers should understand that each Campaign is basically a job offered to a number of people.
  4. When reviewing finished tasks submitted by Workers, Employers should use fair judgement; if submitted task is  finished as required, Employer must mark such task as "satisfied". If a task did not satisfy requirements, Employer must mark such task as "not satisfied".
  5. Employers will only pay for tasks that satisfied requirements ("satisfied"). GigsPal does not charge any money of fees for tasks that did not meet requirements set by Employers.

Campaigns guidelines

Campaigns could also be referred to as "jobs". Every Campaign consist of requirements, how many Workers needed (positions) and amount Workers will earn. When Workers accept a job they will have to submit a proof that they finished this job.

Every Campaign must meet conditions bescribed below.

Workers

Workers are people who enjoy helping others
and earning a little extra cash.
Workers accept jobs and deliver results.
Workers get paid.
 

Guidelines for Workers

Workers must follow strict rules:

  1. Every worker should only create and use one account.
  2. A Worker is allowed to accept same job only once. Using more than one GigsPal account and accepting same job more than once will result in account termination.
  3. Workers should only accept jobs they are capable of finish. If you think you cannot deliver results, don't accept that job! Accepting a job and submitting a false proof will raise a red flag. In most cases three (3) red flags lead to account termination
  4. We have also implemented automated success rate monitoring. If Workers must maintain certain level of success rate over all times. Too many Not-Satisfied tasks will affect success rate. If the rate goes below certain %, worker will not be able to submit tasks for certain period of time.
  5. If a job offered can be finished, Worker can accept that job.
  6. Once worker submits a proof, task will appear in the list "Tasks I finished". Tasks not yet rated by Campaign owners (Employers) have a gray icon. Tasks rated with "satisfied" appear with green icon. Tasks rated with "not satisfied" will display a red icon.
  7. Workers will automatically get paid for tasks rated as "satisfied". Money will be deposited into worker's account as soon as Employer rates submitted task. If Employer forgets to rate tasks, they will be automatically closed by the system (in 168 hours), rated "satisfied". No task will remain open for a long period of time.

WARNING for Workers - PIN, one account, termination

We take spam & scam very seriously and we fight against it! In order to protect Employers we will not tolerate any action or any activity that could harm Employers' satisfaction.

All our members must provide their Full name and current mailing address. The reason is that we will send a PIN number to every worker - PIN is sent to HOME address (not to email address). Workers will not be able to withdraw money until they receive a PIN number and enter it into the system. This means that all workers are VERIFIED and cannot create multiple accounts. PIN numbers will arrive in 5-25 days depending on your location.

We at GigsPal have implemented many controls that allow us to screen everything going on in the GigsPal system. We will do our best to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Users whose accounts were terminated (for any reason) will not be able to participate in GigsPal system anymore.

  • Payments are sent via PayPal, Moneybookers or Alertpay
  • Payments are processed net 30 (one month after placing a withdrawal request)
