How It Works



Overview

Buyadate.org is an online database of member's looking to buy and/or sell time. The goal is to be an empowerment website for entrepreneurs and humanitarians from the full spectrum of humanity -- and to help channel funding into the nonprofit sector.

There are no monthly fees, nor hidden costs- it's a Free membership.

Buyadate.org members have the ability to be a buyer, or a seller, or both, or neither- it is entirely up to you how you choose to utilize your membership.


Sellers

Member sellers can create a profile with text/pictures/videos/links to advertise their talents, expertise, availability, rate, etc., and have sole discretion to adjust price and availability of their time (see our sample profile section for profile ideas). Also the who, what, when, where, why, and how are all solely decided (and/or negotiated or accepted) by the member offering time. Member can leave a standing offer or utilize an auction style offer.

Buyers

Member buyers can browse member profiles, use search features to locate seller members based on a wide variety of criteria. Upon finding a member seller of interest, a buyer can contact the seller. A member buyer may request a date (or further information) with any member seller, but it is entirely up to the seller as to whether or not to accept the requested date (or share further information).

Negotiation and Payment

Members may verify and get to know each other better (through email, video, chat or links), or clarify details of the date with negotiation (see our Suggestions /Tips section for ideas and issues best to discuss and negotiate prior to a date).

Member sellers can designate which payment forms are accepted- and may choose that all payments are made upfront before the date... or members can negotiate to utilize our Escrow Service which holds the payment until the date is satisfactorily completed. It is up to the members to choose and agree what they prefer.

Profit Sharing

Profit Only when a member seller actually profits from using the website, then Buyadate.org shares in 5% (3% of which goes to a nonprofit organization of the member's choice) of the date price. Member sellers can designate which nonprofit/ charity will receive this profit sharing benefit at their member profile page, with the designate nonprofit button (where member can create a default setting, or can tailor each date with which nonprofit, and how much additional, member may choose to share).

Some might ask how does Buyadate.org ensure that payments for dates are done through Buyadate.org's website, and the answer is that we don't- we trust that if we provide members with a helpful, reliable, professional, business portal website, that can serve as promotion, virtual meeting ground, and payment center- that members will feel that 5% (3% of which goes to a nonprofit organization of the member's choice), is more than a fair cost of doing business and well worth the access to a global audience (some member's simply choose to add the 5% into their rate to cover the expense upfront).
