LOCALCONNECT takes a Service Fee for: (i) introducing the parties; (ii) vetting and maintaining a network of reputable and competent Service Providers; and (iii) maintaining and developing the marketplace technology/platform. This service fee is taken at the same time payment is made to you in respect of the completed Job. LOCALCONNECT does not allow cash transactions.
