Bark does not charge commission for the work you do, you don't need to pay a setup fee, and there's no monthly subscription required to use the service. You can stay on the service for as long as you'd like for free, receive as many leads as you'd like for free, and showcase your business with a beautiful Bark profile for free.
When you find a lead that you're interested in and you want to talk to that customer, we will charge you a small fee to send a message directly to the customer.
After you've paid to reply to a customer you get their phone number, and can call them or talk to them via the Bark messenger. We don't get in the way of you communicating with the customer - you can meet with them face-to-face, take the conversation offline and arrange your project in whatever way you'd like. They get your full contact details too, so that they can email you or call you directly.
We price our leads in credits - each credit is worth $1.50, and jobs are typically between 2 and 20 credits. You can save up to 20% by buying credits as part of a credit pack.
All the information on our pricing can be found here.
The number of credits needed to respond may vary depending on the job size, the industry and the location. The cost will be made crystal clear when the enquiry comes through. You can then decide if you want to reply or not.
