What are the fees?

How are experts selected?
- The business chooses the experts direct by reviewing their profiles and services offered
- Experts are notified when selected for a job and have 24 hours to accept the work in the system. If not accepted, the business will then offer to the next suitable expert
- Businesses can message experts using the MCP messaging system. They may do this to request further information or to become comfortable with the expert before purchasing
- If the services are not on our predefined service list, the business may also post a job. Any expert who matches the skill set is notified and invited to bid on the work
To ensure MCP provides only the best and most cost-effective local experts we:
- Use client feedback to maintain standards
- Conduct random quality assurance visits following an expert’s audit
- Ensure our experts’ accreditation and public liability certification is up to date
