Under the change section, click on the
Add Company Profile link which will enable you to list information particular
to your company as well as add employees to your profile who are also

their organization. Managing your employees can easily be done on your Provider Account under the Change module - just click on the
Delete/Approve employees link.
How do I list my services?
Creating your own listing is fast and easy. When you access your Provider Account page, just click on the 'Create a New service listing!' button to begin listing your services.
How can I list my certifications
on my profile page?
Certifications are automatically posted when you purchase verification services from one of our Verifiers. You can browse through the Certification Verifications category to find the verification service suited for you.
How can I protect myself
from non paying buyers?
We encourage providers to create service listings that take a short amount of time to complete. For example, if you are listing a service that requires 5 hours to complete, you break it up into two listings of 3 hours and 2 hours instead.
Are off-site transactions
Transactions done outside ITeezy are not allowed. Those who circumvent the platform will be penalized and providers who encourage customers to purchase the service outside of ITeezy will be suspended and possibly be banned from the site.
What are the different
listing formats that you offer on the site?
There are two ways in which providers can list their services on the site: by putting up a customized Unique listing or adding their business to one of our Joined service listings.
What is a Unique listing?
A Unique listing is a customized service listing that a Provider can create. This can be initiated when you click on the 'Create a new service listing' link on your Provider Account page. In Unique listings, you will be the one who will fill in the title, service description and the fixed price of the service that you offer (as opposed to a joined listing, which is discussed below).
What is a Joined listing?
A Joined listing is a premade listing where the description of services is already prefilled. In a Joined listing, a price range is stated rather than a fixed price. Providers are asked to set their own price within the maximum and minimum price range provided for the service they wish to join.
If providers feel the price range isn't
befitting of the service, they are encouraged to suggest a more suitable
price to help us determine the optimum price range for the joined listing.
can I add my services to a Joined listing?
To add your services to a Joined listing, you can browse through the categories on the site to find the Joined service listing that you wish to enlist in and click on the 'Join this listing' link.
Is there a way for
me to increase the number of listings allowed for my account?
In the beta version, the limit cannot be increased. When the site fully launches, there will be paid memberships that will allow for more listings per provider.
I need to change the
details of my listing. How can I edit it?
You can manage the listings you've created on your Provider Account page. Under the Listings and Order section, you can click on the Created service listings link or Joined service listings link to update and delete unique service listings or disjoin Joined listings.
You can also access the page to update
your listing via the 'Update listing' link found on the details page
of each service listing.
Why can't I change
my short description?
As listings don't expire, it is good practice to show customers the same result they have seen initially when they search for the service for the first time - this the reason why short descriptions cannot be changed. You can, however, have the option to delete your current listing and recreate it with the changed short description
Can I incorporate my
own checkout service on the site?
My listing got suspended.
A listing will get suspended if it violates the Terms stated for User Content on our site. If you have a listing that was suspended and wish to appeal the suspension, you can contact one of our Administrators who can review this matter for you. Meanwhile, we encourage you to view the Terms at this link to prevent any other occurrences of suspended listings.
How can you ensure
the quality of the service listings provided on ITeezy?
Staff members will be monitoring all ITeezy activities and going ons. Our ultimate goal at ITeezy, is to become a community driven site which relies on its members to create a professional environment, one that both fosters and ensures trust and integrity.
As our site grows, select members
will become accredited (by our staff) and share in the roles and duties
of ITeezy employees. These individuals will monitor all activities on
the site, such as (but not limited to) the reviewing listings, issuing
warnings and taking necessary actions on listings and accounts that
violate the site's terms. Buyers are also encouraged to review and rate
providers, which also help to ensure the quality of service that providers
offer on the site.
do I choose which service provider is the right one for me?
Reviewing the provider's Profile page is the best way to determine whether or not a particular provider is the right one to purchase services from -
- The profile page shows basic information about each provider, the services that they offer and details on their terms of service.
- The profile page also links to the provider feedback page which shows a rating based on a grading system of A+ to F-. Ratings are given by past customers, which gives an overview of each provider's record in offering services on the site.
- Each profile page has a link
to ask the provider a question, which allows for buyers to contact their
provider first before purchasing services from them. Also, providers
are encouraged to include their contact information on their listings
Buyers are encouraged to visit the profile
page before purchasing as it provides a vital tool in gathering information
that buyers need before engaging in a transaction with a service provider.
How do I go about purchasing a service?
Purchasing a service is fast and easy. After reviewing the description and terms in listing, you can click on the Buy button to commit to purchase an item. You will be taken to a page to confirm your contact information and be able to proceed through the provider's checkout page.
Please note that once you commit to buy
the service, you will be expected to pay for it. Before committing to
buy, customers are strongly urged to contact the provider first, and
clarify service delivery details and payments.
Customers will also be informed that
if they accumulate one or more non-payment infractions, they may be
banned from the site.
Can it be set up that
I can pay an initial amount and then pay the Provider the full amount
after the job is completed?
Payment terms vary from one provider to another - in this case, before purchasing a service, please check with the Provider if you wish to make specific payment arrangements.
I do if the Provider does not deliver the service that I purchased?
We encourage open communication between the provider and buyer to resolve any issues during their transaction. Providers are asked to supply all the necessary contact information in their profiles such as a telephone number or a physical address where buyers can easily reach them.
ITeezy also has an infraction system
in place where Buyers can report an infraction using the link on the
service listing or on the provider's profile. When submitting an infraction,
buyers are urged to include the order number with details of what occurred.
A review will be conducted and the provider will be asked to amend the
situation (if they are at fault). Affected listings may be suspended.
If the provider is listed in the Better
Business Bureau (BBB) buyers can also file an online claim against the
provider at the BBB site (http://www.bbbonline.org/
Does the site have
a dispute resolution system in place?
A fully integrated dispute resolution system will be provided as an API to ITeezy online partners. After the beta program is over, buyers will have a choice of resolution center solutions.
What do I do if I wish
to get in contact with the provider directly?
In the spirit of being an open market place, providers are encouraged to create full disclosure on their profile with all their contact info as well as full portfolio and web links of their works on their ITeezy profile. ITeezy also offers customers the option for private communication via the 'Ask a Question link' on the listing page in case they don't wish providers to have direct access to their contact info.
You can also get the contact information
of the provider once you place an order, as the contact information
of both parties will appear on the order page
What are the
responsibilities of a community Administrator?
As an Administrator, members will have the responsibility of creating and managing Joined listings, review reported infractions, suspend listings that are in violation of the site's terms and approve Verifiers.
How do I become Administrator?

How can I apply to
become an Editor?

You can check your ranking anytime by logging on to your Provider Account page and clicking on the link to 'Check how far you are from being an Editor'.
If an order is cancelled,
is my purchasing fee refunded?
During our beta stage, there will be no purchasing fee charges. After our beta stage ends, purchasing fees will be refunded automatically if the customer cancels the order or the provider issues a full refund on the order made by customer.
