Avoid cash in hand and potential disagreement - pay easily and securely online when the work has been done. The grafter get's their money within a day and we have their bank details to track them if a problem!
When to pay the grafter
As part of the work agreement, the platform provides a payment schedule which helps to set-out when the worker should be paid for the job.
This is based on a weekly payment on Friday and a final payment at the end of the job. For shorter jobs it will just be the end of the job, with a single payment.
The payment schedule is provided as a guide for when you should pay the grafter (and when they will expect payment). However you only pay for actual time worked by entering days and hours worked in the previous period.
So for example, if the grafter is off for a day, or starts a day later. You can just enter 1 day less when you pay them and you will only pay for the actual time worked.
Making a payment
Note - you cannot pay for fractions of hours or for less than 4 hours.
To make a payment using our Bank Transfer payments do the following:
Return to the job page in 'My Jobs'
Find the relevant job and grafter
Click the 'PAY NOW' button for the worker
Enter the number of days and hours the grafter has worked
You will be directed to your bank's online service (website or app)
Authorise the payment with your bank and you will be returned to Gratfer
You will then be asked to repeat the bank process to pay the platform fee.
With the bank transfer payments, the money goes straight form your account to the worker within seconds.

Separate to the workers payment, you will be charged a small platform fee of 10% + vat payable to GrafterNow for use of the platform.
This covers all fees including the hiring fees, the payment transaction and all other costs. For more information see our Platform Fees section.
