Well Dr Watson.... I would have thought that was Elementary.

Seriously tho, your arrangement re payment is between the vendor (him selling the job) and you. Normally 30 days, and especially important to get the invoice to the vendor WITH the pod sheet, so as to avoid any delaying tactics the few try.

What is this site like. Not looking to make millions on overcharging rates. Just want to assist my daily running with odd jobs

It is the only really serious alternative to CX, or rather it will be.

I really think there should be a separate forum or debate section , open only to Pro members, where suggestions to improve the sites performance can be discussed. With this being an open forum all debates on the pro's and CON's of the site tend to either get swamped and missed or frowned upon by Admin and deleted. We, as members, want this site to work so that it benefits all of our businesses. Surely we should have a pro-active voice?

3D yes I agree, not sure how best to achieve this, it would be easy to close the shop and have established couriers only but how would encourage the genuine newcomer who wants to start up and make a go of it? We have all seen the buy a van and a Sat Nav brigade come and go,
people thinking they are going to make £500 a day and get paid within a week with no stress or bad debts,
this simply does not happen!!!!

please see thread from Rob Heap (cash courier) this is the sort of thing that should be avoided on this site if it's going to gain creditability!
