Bark does not charge commission for the work you do, nor do you need to pay a setup fee and, on top of that, there's no monthly subscription required to use the service. You can stay on the site 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 Bark profile free of charge.
When you find a lead that you're interested in, and you'd like to talk with that potential customer, we will charge you a small fee to connect with them.
After you've paid to submit your information to a buyer, you get their phone number & direct email address. We don't get in the way of you communicating with potential customers - you can meet with them face-to-face and take the conversation offline to arrange the project in whatever way you'd like. They'll also get your full contact details, so that they can email you or call you directly.
We price our leads in credits, which can be purchased in packs, as and when you need them - each credit is worth $1.65, and jobs are typically between 2 and 25 credits.
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.
