What is a “pre-booking” project?

A pre-booking is a normal task that is booked in advance by the client. The client provides a file arrival time (when you have to be available) and a given deadline. We create the project and you get allocated. You start working when the files arrive.

How will I be paid for the time being "pre-booked"?

You will get paid for the working hours we reserve you for, not for the time you are pre-booked for.
Example: If you are “pre-booked” from 13:00 CET to 16:00 CET, and the project is estimated to be 1.5 hours work hours, you will be paid for 1.5 hours even if you have been “pre-booked” for 3 hours.
The hours displayed on the projects will be a range to reflect the changes, e.g. a 20 hour project will be presented as a 5-20 hour project.

Modifications to the project
Upon receiving the client file, the admins will double check the project to make sure that it was scoped correctly. If the file ends up being less or more work than originally scoped the hours will be updated accordingly. If it ends up being more we will confirm with you if you can handle the full task.

What happens if the client cancels the project?

You will not get paid if the client cancels the request within the first hour of submitting it.
If the client cancels the project 1 hour after submitting it you will be paid 5 hours, regardless of the size of the task. The only exception is if the task’s original scope was less than 5 hours.
If the client fails to send us the task 1 hour after the “pre-booked” time starts you will be paid 5 hours. The only exception is if the task’s original scope was less than 5 hours.
If the client sends less work than the original estimated hours you will be paid the new rescoped hours with a minimum of 5 hours. So if the task was originally less than 5 hours, you will be paid in full.

Who can apply for “pre-booking” projects?

Only level 4 and 5 specialists will be able to apply to such projects.

Why should you care?

Applying for "pre-booked" projects allows you to better schedule your time. You just have to be ready when the project files arrive as specified in the task description. Occasionally, you will also get paid for projects that never arrive.

How do I know if it is a “pre-booking” project?

You will see the text “pre-booking” in the first row of the description.
