Bid Date: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Employer Screen Name / Email:XXXXX / XXXXX@XXX.com
Worker Screen Name / Email:XXXXX / XXXXX@XXX.com
Note: To honor your privacy, vWorker.com releases only your email address to
the opposite party. However, you are free to exchange additional contact
information such as IM and phone number information (if you wish). Just remember
that if there is a dispute, off-site communication is not taken into account in
the arbitration process (because it is too easily faked). For your own
protection, always follow up off-site communication with an on-site posting of
what was agreed upon (and get the other party to confirm your posting on-site).
This fully protects you in case of a dispute.
If for some reason you do not want this project, you can cancel without negative
repercussions IF you notify us within 24 hours of escrowing being complete. To do
this go to your "Project Control Panel" link on your project and click
on "Cancel (without penalty) within 24 hours of acceptance". After doing this,
please also give the employer the courtesy of notifying them as well. If you wait
till after that, you will no longer be able to cancel that way, and will have to
go into mediation/arbitration...which could result in a poor rating for you for
terminating your contract prematurely.
This employer will have final power over when you get paid, so please get your
working relationship off on the right foot, by contacting him/her through the
site to let them know that you are starting the job.
To ensure prompt payment, don't forget:
1) Remember to upload all deliverables periodically to the site to protect
yourself in the event of an arbitration. And when all work is done, please
report project completion at the link above.
2) Don't shoot yourself in the foot! Lack of employer response, scope creep,
deadlines (and many other types of common problems) can derail this project if
you are not careful. Worse, if you haven't educated yourself on how to properly
manage these issues on vWorker.com, you may find yourself on the losing side of
an arbitration with an unnecessary blemish on your record. We can protect you in
arbitration, but only if you've taken the time to first protect yourself. So
make sure you complete read and understand your "Crucial information" email. It
is also available at:
If you have any questions regarding it, please ask myself or anyone else at Rent
To ensure the promptest delivery and to develop a good working relationship with
the employer, I recommend that you let him/her know how to best reach you. Their
contact information can be found under 'escrow receipt/contact info' at the link
If you are unable to complete the job on the agreed schedule, please contact the
employer as soon as possible (ASAP). Often times early notice can mean they may
make more time for you. At the worst it can mean the difference between an
'amicable separation' and a 'nasty separation' with a bad rating that would make
it difficult for you to get repeat work on the site again.
When you're ready to rate the other party, use the 'rate' button on the
project page at the link given above.
If you run into any problems or simply have questions, please feel free to
contact a facilitator using the "contact facilitator" link from your "
Project Control Panel" box on your project.
