How do I register as a Provider on www.GoRelocate.com

How do providers get paid by customers?
Customers pay directly at the checkout page via the popular STRIPE.COM payment gateway. Stripe will forward the customers payment to the provider after seven days*, minus the GoRelocate Marketplace Commission (currently 7.5%). Stripe.com is a global leader in secure online marketplaces such as Booking.com and others. (*Note: explanation of the Stripe payment conditions can be read here. https://stripe.com/docs/payouts#7-day).

Which type of customers use GoRelocate?
GoRelocate.com is a marketplace for all individuals and business organisations who need relocation and immigration related services for themselves, their employees or their business partners.
This includes private individuals moving from one location to another or people retiring or moving abroad.
It is also used by companies managing the relocation of their global workforce and contractors. Our platform can also be used by government and regional development / investment agencies (FDI/RDA) wishing to make corporate relocation more easy, transparent and cost / time effective for potential investors.
Can I pay in my local currency?
If your local currency is Euro, then yes. We currently operate our marketplace with Euro currency only. We will add other major currencies during November/December 2018.
Customer reviews ratings
Customers are able to rate the service/product from all vendors. These reviews are public on the www.gorelocate.com marketplace.
Nobody is perfect. We realise from time to time that vendors cannot always offer 100% satisfaction to every customer.. We also realise that sometimes customers expectations are not met, or in some cases, unrealistic.
If you are a vendor, and you dispute a customers rating review, then you have three options:
- Do nothing.
- Contact the customer to resolve any open issues.
- Go to arbitration.
Unlike some marketplaces, we do NOT remove any ratings (good or bad), unless there is a legal or other serious reason to do so. We believe in full transparency, in all its good and not so good forms.
If a customer and a vendor go to arbitration, we will accept the findings of the arbitration, and will remove a negative rating, if arbitration favours the vendor.
We believe this is the fairest solution for everyone.
Do I get charged if I cancel my purchase during the 7-day cooling off period?
How do refunds work?
All payments have a standard 7-day payment process. It means that the customers payment has been ‘reserved’ (e.g. blocked on their credit card) and will be paid out to the vendor after 7 days. If the vendor does not wish to accept the customers order, or the customer has ordered the wrong product / service, then the vendor can request that the payment be refunded to the customer. This 7 day period allows for refunds, changes and vendor refusals (e.g. after a due diligence process).
How do vendors get paid by customers?
Customers pay directly at the checkout page via the Stripe.com payment gateway. Stipe will forward the customers payment to the vendor after seven days, minus the GoRelocate Marketplace Commission (currently 7.5%)
How do you choose vendors for GoRelocate.com?
All vendors are eligible to offer their services on www.GoRelocate.com if they can demonstrate their professional qualifications and / or experience. This means customers have access to all types and sizes of vendors, to make sure there is a relevant option for all customers.
Service Delivery Language
Service Delivery Language is the language(s) which a vendor will offer to their customer on each product that they offer – as a STANDARD service – and not at an additional cost. This language service includes all communication and documentation, except where this documentation is only available in original language (e.g. government laws / rules). Vendors will be expected to explain any non-translated documents to the customer.
Terms & Conditions (General)
Our General Terms & Conditions are listed on the site at www.gorelocate.com/terms-and-conditions
What if I change my mind after buying a product or service?

What is the payment process from customers to vendors?
