As we are a NZ business, we will have to deducted GST if you are based in NZ. If you are in NZ we will need to charge GST on the 5% service fee, to calculate this total amount use 5.75% as this will be the full amount you will receive in your bank account once the service fee and GST has been deducted.

Your output is everything and those reviews and ratings will be too. Goodluck for the job ladies!
How Getting Paid Works
For jobs you are paid when the milestone or deliverable is completed. The client makes a payment through the HIRE HER payment portal, the funds you see in the invoice are calculated on the 5% service fee (excl GST). Our job is to be transparent so if you're based in NZ use the 5.75% fee amount as this includes GST. As we are a NZ business we need to charge this to operate a service in NZ. Let’s break it down for you if you get paid $100 NZD and you are in Australia we will deduct a 5% service fee so in your pocket you get $95 and if you are in NZ 5.75% a 5% service fee including GST is deducted so you get $94.25. The same calculations apply for selling services.
How Withdrawals Work
Once the payment is received by the client it goes into your digital wallet. The funds sit in there until a request is made to withdraw. We will work hard to get your earnings to you ASAP but please allow worst case 7 working days to receive funds in your account. For launch our currency will be in NZD, we are looking to bring in AUD in the next 6 months. If you are based in Australia your NZD earnings will be converted to AUD, a small bank fee will be calculated and deducted from the amount you are withdrawing. Here’s an example of what we mean $100 NZD at an exchange rate 0.926 with a $1.09 fee from the bank will mean you get $91.67 AUD in your bank account. The fee does vary depending on the amount you withdraw so we recommend to avoid unnecessary bank charges withdraw a larger one-off amount instead of frequent smaller amounts.
Services Vs Jobs
You can have the best of both worlds by offering services and applying for jobs. With services you are offering the service based on a dedicated delivery time, budget and scope and with jobs it is based on the client’s job scope, deliverable date and budget. The services are listed under the services marketplace and under your profile.
Any Fees or Charges to Look Out For
We have built this platform to empower, support and encourage women to grow their businesses and work with one another. Our job is to be transparent as possible. The service fee is the only method we are using to generate revenue for our platform any other fees you see is paid directly to the service provider. Here are the main charges you will see 5% service fee (excl GST) for any successful job you get and service you sell. GST is deducted from NZ clients so use the 5.75% amount to calculate the service fee and GST amount which gives you the full picture of what you will pocket. For our Australian freelancers there is a bank fee for withdrawing your NZD earnings into your Australian account and the conversion amount on the day is used.
