All users must be over 18 years of age. A Buyer is any user who needs a Service. That can be anyone from a student seeking online lessons with a tutor to an entrepreneur creating software. A Seller is any user offering a Service based on their Skill.
If you are an incorporated business or intend to buy or sell over 20 orders per month, please sign up or convert your individual account to a business account.
We refuse to segregate Buyers and Sellers on HostJane. While Sellers see additional stats and sales analytics after posting at least 1 listing; the order center and reporting is integrated for every user to be a multi-player. We deliberately designed it that way.
Any user can seamlessly purchase services and enter confidentiality and licensing contracts with other users as easily as they sell their own Services and find new clients.
At HostJane we believe work communities should avoid segregating people into different functions or tiered systems. For that same reason we also avoid badges, followers or levels that you might see on other marketplaces.
The only visible metric that might separate users here is the individual sales, or flame score and job completeness rating that are linked to client satisfaction if the user decides to sell Services.
Sellers also have a publicly available Studio while Buyer profiles can only be browsed by members for privacy.
