How do bookings work on the GOHISO marketplace?
1. Service providers sign up for GOHISO and list their services on the marketplace.
2. Service customers have the option to 'book and pay' or 'request a quote'. When customers book and pay on GOHISO, we process the credit card payment using Stripe and hold the funds securely in escrow until the customer releases them.
3. Once the job is done, service providers request payment from their customer by marking the service complete. (customers can also release the funds at anytime prior to the booking).
4. Once the customer releases payment, earnings are instantly transferred to the service provider's Stripe account. Deposits usually reach bank accounts within 24-48 hours.
5. Afterwards, service providers and their customers can leave a review to share their booking experience. All booking information stays organized online for future reference.
GOHISO deducts a 5% booking commission from seller payouts to cover credit card fees and marketing costs.
