Note: “The team account feature is no longer available as of Feb 7, 2018.”
Are you a buyer, that is a buyer only and not a seller, also? If so, you may want to consider opening a Team Account. This is by far one of the best features 5r has implemented to help any and all buyers, from the occasional to the frequent.
When making small purchases, that is anything under $20, it saves us quite a bit of money in transaction fees. Yes, you can be a team of ONE.
You know that dreaded transaction fee that is tacked on to every purchase? If we want to tip our seller at the end then there is more transaction fee added.
You hire ten sellers (individually) for a $5 gig, that’s $1 in transaction fees. You give all of them $5 tip, that’s another $1 fee. You paid $20 in transaction fees.
You can save some money in one of two ways.
(1) If you are buying several gigs and know whom you want to hire, put the gigs into your basket. You know that tiny shopping cart next to your avatar? Once you have at least $20.00 worth in the cart, then buy it all at once. You will pay $1 in fee for all of them or 5% whichever is higher.
(2) If you have a “Team Account” - you already paid the transaction fee, of 5%. You can buy as many $5 gigs as your heart desires and do not have to worry about paying another fee.
You can also use your Team Account balance to tip your sellers at the end of an order without having to pay another transaction fee.
Keep in mind, you do not get another invoice when using team account, so make sure to keep the receipt they email you as your proof if you are using it for business purposes!
For all you awesome buyers! Happy shopping and don’t forget to review and tip these hard working sellers, for exceptional work.
