Our Pricing Philosophy
Our aim at CircleSource is to strengthen local communities through great business relationships. That’s why it is 100% free for both buyers and suppliers to join, create and view profiles and list and pitch for jobs. You never have to pay to access CircleSources premium features. Essentially, our pricing philosophy is: no job, no fee.
When a supplier wins a job, CircleSource will charge a capped commission fee of 7.5% of the agreed value of the job, when the buyer accepts the proposal. The payment is processed through our secure platform. Where the engagement commission is over $500, the supplier has the option to split the charge, 50% on acceptance and 50% in 30 days. Suppliers then invoice the buyer directly for the value of the job in accordance with agreed payment terms.
There are no fees for buyers using CircleSource.
Fees are capped at a maximum of $1,250. This means that for any job over $16,667, you will never pay more than $1,250. Check out our Fee Calculator.
Refer to our Fees & Charges Policy for more information.
