How Do I Hire A Trades Person?

Follow the steps above to create an account and install the app (skip if you already done that).

OPTIONAL: We recommend you upload a Jamaican ID card (Divers License or other gov issued ID). Some people may only want to deal with those who are verified/identified. To upload your ID card click here to log into your web account then follow the steps to upload your ID card.

 

Then follow the steps in the video below to quickly hire a trades person using the Little Side Jobs App.

With little Side Jobs, NO CASH is used, all payments are thru the app for safety.

You pre-pay for the whole job up front using PayPal from the websiteor with a credit/debit card from within the app.

When you use PayPal, you add money to your account wallet ahead of time (before you hire the freelancer). Then in the app at check out, when you hire a freelancer, you can use that PayPal money you added to pay the freelancer instead of using your Credit/Debit card.

 

The PayPal money you added can be withdrawn at anytime if not used, or any left over money can be used to pay another freelancer.

 

This pre-payment goes into a safe escrow holding account.

 

When the job is done, YOU as the employer release the payment to the workers account.

How Do I Get Hired?

Follow the steps above to create an account and install the app (skip if you already done that)

OPTIONAL: You may get more jobs if you are verified/identified by uploading your ID card (Drivers License or other gov issued ID card). To upload your ID card click here to log into your web account then follow the steps to upload your ID card, and other photos/documents to show your capability.

 

Then follow the steps below (videos) to set up your account in the app to get hired.

Step 1. Set Your Pay

Set your default pay rate. Your default pay rate is what you would like to get paid for jobs. There are two types of pay rates you can set. 

Type 1: The whole job.

The pay you want for the entire job. You will not charge for mileage or number of hours.

Type 2: Per/Hour and/or Per/Mile

You will charge a set amount per hour or per mile.

Step 2. Set The Types Of Jobs You Want

Set the kinds of jobs you want by setting your skills in the app. Check the box next to each skill you have, and enter the number of years experience you have for that skill.

You can enter as many as you like, but you should only enter the ones you really know how to do because at the end of the job you will get a rating.

 

If you mess up or do a poor job, your employer may give you a low rating, this reduces your chances of getting another job on the app.

Step 3. Respond to Job Offers

After telling the Little Side Jobs app the kinds of jobs you want by entering your skills, It will instantly alert you when someone wants to hire someone with your skills. 

When you get the alert, you only have a short time (around 1 minute) to respond by applying for the job if you are interested in it. 

 

If you don't apply for the job within that time, the job will disappear from your screen and you will no longer be able to apply for it. So once you get a job alert you have to apply quickly!

How Do I Get Paid?

All jobs are paid for before the jobs start by the employer using a debit/credit card.

 

This pay is stored in a holding account until the job is done.

 

At the end of the job, if the employer is satisfied with the work, they themselves will use the app to release your pay to your account.

 

Payments from different jobs you do will accumulate in your account. At the press of a button in the app, you can withdraw that money at anytime to an institution:
