Frequently asked questions
Does it cost anything to use Handz?
The app is free to download. It is completely free for the "Lend a Hand" users (people doing the work) and nearly free for the "Need a Hand" users. We believe in 100% transparency. Handz for Hire will charge the person hiring a $1.00 flat service fee and a minimal PayPal Merchant Processing Fee at the time of payment (when the job is completed and closed out). That's it!
What if I want to rehire the same person?
Once a job is completed, and payments have been made through the app, the job is moved to "job history." Here, a chat feature allows you to talk to people you've worked with in the past. If you want to rehire someone, just confirm that the person is available via the chat feature, and click the rehire button. You can update the job details and create a new job directly with your favorite person.
Why do I have to provide my PayPal information?
Handz for Hire has a partnership with PayPal that allows for easy and seamless job payments. To access the app, you'll need to add or create a personal or business PayPal account. PayPal allows for secure transactions between individuals using both "Need a Hand" and "Lend a Hand" features of the app.
Does Handz have access to my PayPal information?
No, Handz does not have access to your PayPal credentials. PayPal secures users' banking data, which means it cannot be accessed directly by Handz or any other third party. We have setup a partnership with PayPal: they take care of the financial transactions and security, while we provide a platform to easily connect neighbors who want to help each other out!
What if I created a job and underestimated the expected duration of the job?
This may happen and that's why we designed Handz for Hire to be flexible. Let's say you had expected a job to take 3 hours, but instead it took the person you hired 6 hours.
The date has passed for my posted job, and then my job disappeared. What happened?
When we designed Handz for Hire, we needed to set some parameters on how and when a posted job would expire. A posted job is set to expire 24 hours after the set start time of the job. The details of the job can be edited at any time prior to the job expiration. There may be times when you post a job and not get an applicant right away. You can go into "edit a job" on your main profile, select the job you want to edit, and adjust the date and time. This will prevent the job from expiring.
