Fees & Charges Policy
At CircleSource, we believe that access to a transparent marketplace, where buyers can find, review, follow and engage suppliers they need should come at no cost. Where suppliers of sought-after services could showcase their skills and experience, and be found by others, at no cost. Where we succeed only if we help others succeed.
The CircleSource pricing philosophy is unlike any other marketplace out there;
- Dare to be different, don’t just ‘clip the ticket’ at every opportunity
- Embrace the core principles of collaborative economies and open marketplaces
- Don’t charge for joining, for creating Jobs, for viewing suppliers, for wanting choice!
- Just help facilitate the success of others and share in that success
That’s why we don’t charge a cent to any User, unless they actually win a Job. Essentially a “no Job, no fee” scenario. And unlike other models, we’re not looking to make money off every cent that you make, that’s why we don’t like the high and ongoing commission structures you’ve probably seen out there.
With CircleSource it’s just one, low, capped fee when a supplier actually gets the Job. It really is that simple…..
CircleSource is completely free to join, create your personal and company profiles, search for, find and follow suppliers, create and post Activities and Jobs, and request offers from suppliers of your choosing from within the CircleSource network.
CircleSource is free to join, create your detailed personal and company profiles, highlight your Skills, showcase recent engagements, Jobs or work assignments delivered, receive Job offer invitations and make as many Job offers to Buyers as you like.
How much would it normally cost to open another marketing channel, perform BDM etc? That’s how much you could save by using CircleSource as another channel.
Only when a Job offer you make is accepted, a low, flat, capped fee relative to the value of the Job offer is charged.
**NEW** Split Payment
We know that paying up front fees can be a sore point, especially if the Job doesn’t start straight away. That’s why we introduced split payment on CircleSource fees AUD $550 and over. Here’s how it works:
An offer you make on a Job in CircleSource has a calculated fee of AUD $550:
You get charged AUD $275 (incl.) when your offer is accepted; and
The remaining AUD $275 (incl.) 30 days later.
Invoices are sent at the time of charging, for each separate charge.
Split payment is just another way CircleSource can make things easier for your business.
Australian residents are subject to GST of 10%. Other government taxes may apply, depending on your region. All Job supply values and fees are inclusive of GST.
