Payments and Invoicing
How does payment work (between a professional and a client)
Payment is done external to the site. Payment methods are subjective to each professional; check the professionals profile page to see their available payment methods.
How does invoicing work
When the job has been completed, the professional sends an invoice through the MMH system. The client is then notified and makes payment with one of the available payment options. The professional is then notified and the job can now be marked “closed”.
Jobs and Quotes
How quotes work
Firstly you will send a quote for a job; then if the client chooses to accept your quote, you will then be notified and will still have to confirm and accept for the job to begin. Therefore your quote is not a final offer that can be accepted, it is a basic quote and you will still need to confirm the client’s acceptance of your quote before the contract begins.
Can I retract or edit a quote
You can edit or delete a quote by going to “my profile”, then
under “My Jobs” click “submitted quotes”.
Now click edit or delete on the desired quote
(This is available only if the job has not yet started)
Can I cancel a job after ive been hired (as the professional)
Once a job has started; a contract has also started. It is entirely between you and the client to come to some sort of understanding. Keep in mind that if this is done unprofessionally; the client may leave negative feedback, possibly damaging your reputation on the site.

What if I’m not happy with the job
In regards to insurance or refunds; that is entirely between you and the professional and his/her business policies that should be readable on their professional profile.
In regards to our site; if such a situation does arise we highly recommend you leave honest and accurate feedback on the professional for the unsatisfactory job.
What if the job ends up costing more than the quote
It is your responsibility as a professional to include all costs in your quote. Once the quote has been accepted from both parties, and the job has begun; the contract has then started with the already determined and agreed on price.
