The process

The service process is explained in How it Works section of About page. Additional notes below:

Job requests submitted by Developers go through an approval process with one of below workflows:

After acceptance of the solution, the solution will be listed in Solution page - if the Requester is chosen the job to be public.

Jobs being Public or Private

The Requester at the time of requesting the job should determine if the job description and consequenly its solution description is going to be private or public. Private means Guest Users or other Requesters will not be able to see the job/solution. Please note all developers will be able to see the job description before it goes to Closed status. When the Job goes to Closed status, only the Requester and Developer who worked on the job will be able to see the solution. In case the soltuion is rejected by reviewer, the job will become visible to all Developers.

The public/private attribute of the job cannot be changed after the submission of the job.

Fees and Services

1Snippet currently has one product called "Job Request". This product is offered to Requesters by which they can issue job requests for Developers to pickup.

1Snippet provides "Job Request" products in an open marketplace to existing or potential Developers to choose from.

Payments done by Requesters go toward credits. The Requester buys credits usable for a product. At the time of Requesting a Job, the Reqeuster assigns their available credit to the Job.

"Job Request" Price: The price of a product is determined at the time of buying credits. The price is shown to the Requester in "Add Credit" page and the Requester by paying toward that credit(s) accepts that product fee.

Determination of "Job Request" product price: This price is roughly "minimum of half an hour of average household income in the Requester's country OR 5 AUD". 1Snippet uses various sources to obtain and periodically updates these data. The Requester and Developer must agree that calculations behind determination of fee of the product may not reflect the numbers they may obtain from differnt sources at different times. Additionaly since currency exchange rates are also involved in determination of the fee the Requesters and Developers see, 1Snippet will not guarantee the fee will reflect the exact currency exchange rate from a specific source at a point of time.

"Job" Price: Job price is the price paid to Developers for the solution description (code snippet) they provide to the jobs. This price equals to "Job Request" price after deduction of 1Snippet share and payment transcation fees. The job price is shown to Develoeprs in "Job" page before picking up the job. A Developer accepts the Job Price by providing the solution to the job.

Job Pay (exact) vs Job Pay (approx): The Job page contains two columns whowin the job price: Job Pay (exact) and Job Pay (approx). The exact amount is the exact amount that will be paid by PayPal to the Developer if their "PayPal currency of preference" is the same as the credit used by the Requester to pay for the job. In cases where Requesters payment toward credit and Developer's "PayPal currency of preference" are similar, the developer will benefit from receiving the money in the same currency and will avoid paying currency exchange fees incured by PayPal (charged toward Developer). In case the Developer's "PayPal currency of preference" is different to the currency used by Requester to pay for the Job Request, Job Pay (approx) column will show the amount the Developer will receive in their PayPal in their currency of choice. 1Snippet has no control over the currency exchange rates PayPal applies to the Payment and hence this value is shown just as approximation.

Payments to Developers

All payments to Developers are handled by PayPal. To this end, providing a valid paypal email address is mandatory otherwise 1Snippet will be unable to pay the Developer.

Payments are done on a weekly basis EOD Wednesday AEST time.

By accepting this Terms you confirm that you have a valid working PayPal account which is not restricted and is able to receive payments.

Refunds

Credits purchased by Reviewers can automatically be refunded to Reviewers under certain circumstances explained above (e.g. when Job is not picked up by any Developer after certain period of time). These refunded credits can be reused and assigned to new Job Requests.

Refunding the payment done by a Requester can only be initiated in circumstances a credit refund is done first. Following that a written request needs to communicated to 1Snippet Website vi email.

Right to Refuse Service

We reserve the right to refuse service to any user based on our discretion. This will be done by informing the user via email they have provided and the payment settlement will be done through a valid PayPal email provided by the user in thier account. The PayPal payment in this case may incur fees.

Dispute with Users

For any dispute raise the matter through contact page.

All claims you bring against 1Snippet must be resolved in accordance with the terms of this Terms of Service.

You agree that you will not pursue any claims arising under this Terms of Service on a class or other representative basis and will not seek to coordinate or consolidate any arbitration or action hereunder with any other proceeding.

Currencies

The payments to Developers will be in their currency of choice. All the exchange rates applied in various parts of website are obtained by third parties serve as aproximations. The rates are only refreshed periodically. Actual exchange rates related to payments (to 1Snippet or by 1Snippet) are handled and calculated by PayPal. The only place the currency exchange rates are not applied are in Jobs page where developers see the job rates - only where the job's payment matches developer's currency of choice. These values come under Job Pay (exact) column.
