Hi I'm new to this so please be nice, I'm just wondering how you get paid for jobs, Is my assumption you just invoice the company when you pick up the goods correct? Or do mtvan sort it or what? I only ask because I've been on other sites where you invoice say mtvan with job number_reference, cost etc and they would pay you. So I wouldn't want to turn up to a job and invoice them and get told mtvan will invoice them too as it would look unprofessional and shoddy, As a newbie it's a scary thought. Any help please thanks Sean

It is down to the sub contractor to invoice the the person or company that is subbing out the work, when the job has been completed, dont forget to get the POD signed then send along with the invoice, this can be via post or email depending on the T & C

Ah right thank you, so if I'm getting the work from mtvan I'd be invoicing mtvan and not say Bobs Pet bedding? Sorry if it sounds stupid but I just want to make sure before I accept any jobs or anything.

Nope, you invoice the mtvan member who gave you the job. mtvan is just a website to facilitate the connections between courier drivers and courier companies.

Right that makes sense, I've been a self employed courier for a parcel firm for a while and I'm hoping to leave soon and pursue work on sites like this but it's all so different, I think it's just a case of getting out and having a go and hopefully I'm just over thinking it all, Thanks for your time Scott and PW much appreaciared
