    • Example: Let's say, you want to work 5 hours from 12:00 pm. You can schedule 5 intervals from 12:00 - 14:30 (2.5 hours). Do not schedule any work from 14:30 - 15:30 (This is your break time.) Schedule 5 intervals from 15:30 - 18:00 (2.5 hours). This is just a recommendation from us. However, you may play around with your intervals and break time as you feel convenient.

Service Fee

  • We deduct a Service Fee of 10%, starting from minimum $50.00 to a maximum amount of $75.00 (capped) of your total pay during each pay period.

  • Our Service Fee covers administrative expenses such as banking, accounting and providing access to virtual platform, assistance and support to our agents.

Let's review a few examples to understand the service fee calculation.

Example-1: If you worked a minimum 32.50 hours during a pay period at $15.50 per hour.​

  • Your total earning before the deduction of Service Fee = $15.50 per hour x 32.50 hours = $503.75

  • We will deduct a minimum Service Fee of $50.00 flat amount.

  • Hence your Total Pay for that pay period = $503.75 - $50.00 = $453.75

Example-2: If you work 40 hours during a pay period at $15.50 per hour.

  • Your total earning before the deduction of Service Fee = $15.50 per hour x 40 hours = $620.00

  • We will deduct a Service Fee of 10% of $620.00 which would be $62.00 flat amount.

  • Hence your Total Pay for that pay period = $620.00 - $62.00 = $558.00

Example-3: If you work 75 hours during a pay period at $15.50 per hour.

  • Your total earning before the deduction of Service Fee = $15.50 per hour x 75 hours = $1162.50

  • Since your total earning is more than $750.00, we will deduct a maximum Service Fee of $75.00 flat amount.

  • Hence your Total Pay for that pay period = $1162.50 - $75.00 = $1087.50
