Be sure to connect your account with Stripe before accepting any bid. To do so, use the ‘Connect with Stripe’ link found inside your profile by clicking ‘Account Information’ on the right hand side.

**We recommend you record all information relative to the progression of the project, from start to finish, between you and the freelancer inside the projects workspace. This good practice serves to protect you and your freelancer of any potential wrongdoings or disputes that may arise as a result of poor business practices.
You may leave public feedback by navigating to your completed projects page and adding a comment to the freelancers history, followed by a rating between 1 – 5 stars.
You don’t search for projects open to bidding. Dropbytech.com is the first free platform to completely automate the availability of jobs by emailing new projects to local users who meet the projects skill sets.
When a client finishes a project DropByTech.com will deduct a competitive low 10% commission rate from the projects total bid amount and release the remaining funds into your Stripe account.
** Be sure to have properly connected your DropByTech.com account with your Stripe account. If you have not then DropByTech.com will be unable to release any remaining funds to you. Dropbytech.com is not responsible for ensuring your Stripe account has been properly setup prior to completing a project.
First go into your projects page and click the ‘Close’ option. You will then be redirected to a page where you will describe why you’d like to end the project early. Your claim will be placed under investigation by our team. Be sure to include as much detailed information as possible about your dispute.
We may also contact the freelancer working on the project for further investigation. If it is found that the contractor did not resolve the original problem listed before they placed their bid then a full refund will be issued back to the project owner, the freelancer will not receive payment, and the project will be closed.
Freelancers requesting to dispute payment on a project they’ve worked and resolved, please email [email protected] with your user ID, clients name and project details.
