All Bark leads are priced in credits. The number of credits needed to respond to a lead varies depending on the service required and the size of the job. The credit price is always visible before responding to the lead.

The standard price for a credit is £1.20 (ex VAT) but we offer a number of great discounts when buying packs of credits.

You can buy credits here.

Leads vary in credit price depending on the service required and the size of the job. This is calculated based on the specific requirements of each customer when submitting their request on Bark.

For example, a lead where a customer needs their 2 bedroom flat cleaned as a one-off will require fewer credits to respond to than a lead where a customer needs their 4 bedroom house cleaned every week.

The Get Hired Guarantee (GHG) is a great way of securing new business, risk-free.

We’re so confident you’ll get hired at least once from your starter pack, that if you don’t we’ll give you all your credits back.

We only ask that all the credits are used and that you wait 7 days from when your last response is sent. The reason for this is to ensure you give the customer enough time to get back to you.

Once this time has passed, you can contact Bark’s customer success team and we will reinstate the credits to your Bark account for re-use at no extra cost. 

This offer may only be claimed once.

Bark screens every request to prevent incorrect details being released, so this problem is likely to be very rare. 

In the unlikely event that you respond to a lead with incorrect contact details, please contact the Bark customer success team to investigate. 

Following verification, Bark will return the credits used to your account.

Our credit return policy works as follows.

We will return credits immediately if:

    1. A phone number provided is invalid, for example if it says “calls are not being connected to this number”.
    2. An email address provided isn’t functioning.
    3. We can verify that the contact details provided are not for the person submitting the request.

We will not return credits in the following circumstances:

    1. The contact details provided are valid, but the customer does not respond.
    2. You make contact with a customer, but do not secure the job.

You must also inform us of any issues relating to this policy within 14 days of responding to the lead.
