Pros Guidelines

Pros Guidelines

We work hard to uphold these guidelines not only because we truly believe in being open and honest, but so that everyone can enjoy our marketplace.

For every Pro in our Community

We’re passionate about connecting people ready to work with people who need work done. As TradiePro continues to grow it’s important that the community follows guidelines that reflect our values and standards of behaviour. We work hard to enforce these guidelines so that we can maintain our authenticity and transparency, so that everyone has an enjoyable experience.

TradiePro is here to help facilitate a reliable, safe and successful environment and is here to help resolve issues should they arise. In return, we ask for your cooperation and timely response to the TradiePro team. If you suspect a member has violated any Community Guidelines, please report it to TradiePro ASAP. Use the Report as Inappropriate feature located within the job or comments section, or go to Contact Us.

This document will continue to change as we grow and continue to think about what’s best for the TradiePro community.

TradiePro takes breaches of the Community Guidelines seriously. If our team receives reports that you have breaches any of the Guidelines below, we may take action to remove any content, Posted job or Offer You have submitted to the TradiePro Service or cancel or suspend Your account and/or any job Contracts.

1. Publicly sharing private information
To maintain the integrity and authenticity of TradiePro, our members can only share private contact information once an offer is accepted via private messages.
To protect your safety and security, private contact details or 3rd party links are not allowed to be shared in any public areas of the site including any comments and attachments. This includes, but is not limited to, business websites, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, personal emails, phone numbers, addresses or personal websites.

2. Unacceptable behaviours
Community is at the heart of what we do at TradiePro. Courtesy, mutual respect and seeing things from another person’s perspective is essential. At TradiePro, we do not tolerate the following negative behaviours against other members of the TradiePro Community or TradiePro Staff:

  • Hatred or violence
  • Discrimination
  • Harassment
  • Illegal behaviours
  • Trolling

3. Unsupported practices
At TradiePro, we’re committed to bringing communities together however this requires your support and cooperation. We do not support the following activities within our TradiePro community, as it jeopardises the creation of a fair, transparent and trustworthy environment:

  • Fraudulent TradiePro reviews
  • Artificially improving public profile
  • Discussion forum
  • Harvesting member information
  • Lead generation
  • No alcohol related jobs

4. Pricing and payments

To ensure a safe and rewarding environment for all members of the TradiePro community, it’s important to understand how pricing and payments work.

4.1 Offer prices

Offers placed must be totalled to the full amount per job. Offers must not be hourly, unit or quote based. Partial quotes mentioning further negotiation of prices off the platform are also not supported.

4.2 TradiePro Payment Account

Cash payments are not supported on the TradiePro platform. To ensure that you get paid for a job the TradiePro Payment Account securely holds the job funds until you mark the job as complete.

4.3 Accurate banking details

To ensure seamless transition of funds, please ensure your banking details are up to date in your Payment Settings.

5. Accountability and your reputation

You remain accountable for both your behaviour on the TradiePro platform and the provision and outcome of each job you are assigned to. Your responsibilities include:

5.1 Fulfilment of job requirements

Pros are expected to provide the services as agreed with the Poster.

5.2 Managing other Pros involved
The Pro assigned to the job is responsible for the actions of any Pros they arrange to assist them in providing the services agreed with the Poster. If the Pro assigned chooses to subcontract others to perform the services agreed with the Poster, the Pro must gain the Poster’s consent. The Pro assigned to the job must also ensure that all Pros assisting them have an TradiePro user account.
For jobs completed in-person, you must attend to check that the job requirements are met even if you requested other Pros to assist with the job.

5.3 The experience you provide for other members
Pros must not repetitively provide poor experiences for other members of the TradiePro Community.
We remind you that where TradiePro receives reports that you have breached any of these Guidelines, we may take action to remove any content, or cancel or suspend your account and/or any job contracts.

6. Account eligibility

6.1 18 years or older:
All members of the TradiePro community must be 18 years or older. This is a legal requirement as people under the age of 18 are not able to enter a legal contract with TradiePro. TradiePro reserves the right to request proof of age should this be necessary.

Members of the TradiePro Community may only have a single, active account on the platform. As your account reflects your reputation in the marketplace and represents your skills and abilities, any duplicate accounts attempting to disguise a member’s history, will be removed immediately. This means that all content posted by additional accounts will be removed and any associated job contracts will be cancelled.

7. Account administration

Your account is your responsibility and you must maintain control of it. It must not be transferred to another person as your account and reviews reflect your skills and abilities.
