4. How do I get paid for a completed job?
Once you complete the job and confirm on the app, the customer will then have 24 hours to confirm completion. Once the customer confirms completion or the 24 hour period passes, whichever comes first, the funds are released for payment into your bank account directly however the funds may take 48 to 72 hours to register depending on your bank.
5. What if the job turns out not to be what is expected upon arrival?
If for example, the grass is far too high to be classified for basic lawn service or if the home cleaning job is far too dirty to be classified for basic surface cleaning, use the chat feature to chat with the customer. You may be able to come to an agreement for you to complete the job with an additional fee that would be settled outside the app with cash or personal check etc. Or, if you dont have time to complete it as it is, you may both agree to cancel that job.

8. How do I receive job notifications?
When you sign up, the app will ask for you to check which of the PINCH network service areas match your service areas. Once a job is requested in one of your service areas, you will receive a notification (notifications mush be turned on in iphone settings) telling you where the job is located, the expected completion time window (24, 48, or 72 hours) and how much it pays. Be the first service provider to accept that job and it's yours to complete!
9. What happens if I receive a job notification and I dont accept it?
There is no penalty for not accepting a job notification. The notification just goes out to all providers that service the area where the job is located. Its totally up to you whether or not you want to accept the job. The job goes to the first provider to accept it.
7. I'm signed up on the app as a service provider, what happens next?
Once you are signed up, one of our administrators will reach out to you to complete the screening process which involves collecting some additional information and a simple background check covered by PINCH. Once you are approved, we will activate you as a service provider and you will start receiving jobs notifications as they come into your service area/s.
