What is "performance-based" pay and how does it benefit me?
Who pays me?
When is the payment made?
How is the payment made?
Being that we're paying an installer ahead of payment to us, we make that payment with a credit card. Installers will need a credit card processor, which is easiest handled via PayPal.
Why won't I receive an earning statement?
What if there is more work than what was ordered?
Installers should contact their client if additional work has been added by the end-user.
The project required more time than estimated. Do I get more money?
Are there any other perks to working with AIN?
