Frequently Asked Questions

What is Peerz?

Peerz is a community based paid per minute chat. Inside Peerz, you can become an user, a provider, or both at the same time. A user can be a person or a business looking for answers on the most various subjects: marketing, companies, advice, etc. A provider is someone willing to provide information on a paid per minute basis.

Users post questions or campaigns to be answered by providers, which in turn will offer help. If help is accepted, then a conversation starts and the clock starts ticking. At the end of the conversation, the provider will receive the funds designated from that conversation time.

Paid per minute chat?

Exactly. You can engage in conversations from your phone or web site just like if you were using any other messenger apps out there. Except with Peerz you get paid for your time whenever a user needs your knowledge.

Once you set up your account and complete your profile, including your skills and work history, we will make your profile available for users looking for help with those terms.

The idea is that Peerz works for everyone. Because information is valuable for everyone. Here are a few samples:

  • Work as a recruiter and wants to help others build killing Resumes? People would be happy to pay for this.
  • Have you been saving money your entire life and conquered early financial independence? People would love to learn and pay for it.
  • Understand about immigration law and are ready to provide some advice to others? There is someone willing to pay for it.
  • Worked as a nurse your entire life, and can help others with information on how to take care of themselves and loved ones? Surely someone wants to pay for this.
  • Worked at a large grocery store chain and can help others get the job? Well, you can get paid for it.
  • Make your living selling houses and can help others understand if they're paying too much in the current market? Someone will save and pay for it.

How do I earn conversations?

The very first step is to make sure you have an impecable profile. Having a well maintained profile, with up to date information, a nice profile photo and skills described will earn you spots on the home page, as well as early matches when we receive questions from users.

Then, whenever users post questions to the website, you can offer your help to those questions. It is important that you only submit help offers to the questions that you are skilled for: users don't like spammers or clueless people on the subject they're looking help for.

Getting paid

Providers are paid on a weekly basis for all the completed conversations they had for that week. You will receive your rate per minute minus Peerz's fees (20% as of December 2018)

Here is a sample / breakdown of a fictious week for a provider who charges $1.00 per minute:

  • On Monday, they provided 20min of paid chat
  • On Tuesday, they provided 40min of paid chat
  • On Friday, they provided 60min of paid chat

This provider would get paid, the following week, 2 hours of their time, minus 20%, coming to a total of $96.00

Tips & Rules

Here are some rules we like to lay out in a very simple way:

  • Peerz is for everyone. We don't tolerate any kind of discrimination.
  • Peerz is not for unlawful actions or activities
  • Completed conversations can be disputed if users feel providers are wasting their time (and money!)
  • Users can review providers, based on their overall experience after conversations are complete

And here are some tips we'd like you to know:

  • Keep your profile up to date: Nice profiles will jump ahead
  • Visit the site regularly: new questions may pop up for those who are alert
  • Download the apps as soon as they are available: they are a powerful platform with notifications and real time communication. Besides you can use your phone from anywhere
  • If you have skills on not very crowded spaces, that's the way to go. Everyone seems to know about love and dating these days. Stand out with skills most don't have.
