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.

Modifications to the project
Upon receiving the client file, the admins will double check the project to make sure that it was scoped correctly. A 20% plus or minus difference is normal, as sometime files will have many repeating slides, while other files may turn out to have difficult recreations that require more time and effort to complete.

What happens if the client cancels the project?

You will not get paid if the client cancels the project with the first hour you were allocated to the project
If the client cancels the project more than 6 hours before “pre-booked” time starts, you will be paid 50% of your estimated hours
If the client cancels the project less than 6 hours before “pre-booked” time starts, you will be paid 75% of your estimated hours
If the client cancels the task less than 3 hours after the “pre-booked” time starts, you will be paid 75% of your estimated hours
If the client sends us the task late (less than 3 hours after the "pre-booked" time starts), you will be paid 100% of your estimated hours even if the task is rescoped to be less work
If the client fails to send us the task 3 hours after the “pre-booked” time starts you will be paid 100% of your scoping hours
If the client sends less work than the original estimated hours you will still get paid fully for the initial scoped time

Who can apply for “pre-booking” projects?

Why should you care?
