Jobs secured through Builderscrack are eligible for success fees.

Success Fees

We only charge a tiered success fee when you secure work. If you secure a ‘Direct Enquiry’ job, there is no success fee.

The fee is based on total job value. As the job value increases our percentage fee decreases.

Job value Tier fee
Component of job value up to $2,500 7.5%
Component of job value $2,500 – $10,000 4.5%
Component of job value $10,000 – $50,000 1.5%

You can calculate your fee with our handy calculator.

Frequently asked questions

Your Profile is a professional listing which appears in our Trade Directory pages. It contains features for winning clients, including your BC reviews, accreditations and project galleries. Consider it like a digital business card, with essential business information that you can share anywhere with potential clients.

A chase is similar to an expression of interest. Homeowners post a job, we match it to suitable tradespeople and send out the job lead. You can choose to ‘chase’ the jobs you want to connect on.

Each package comes with an allocation of job chases; if you hit your chase limit and receive leads you’d like to chase, you can upgrade and access more job chases.

Your chase limit is based on the package you are subscribed to. Chases are calculated on a rolling day basis by the number specified by your plan. If you reach your limit, we’ll give you the option to upgrade or you can wait for your chase limit to reset.

When you secure a job (excluding direct enquiry jobs), a success fee is invoiced and is due on the job start date. The fee is calculated using the total job value and the discount applied is determined by the package subscription held at the time of chasing the job. Read the above section to see the fee breakdown and to use our success fee calculator.

Business and Advantage subscribers can receive jobs directly through their public profile. There are no success fees on these Direct Jobs.

Homeowners may send their job details directly to you via your public profile. If you are a Business or Advantage subscriber you can respond to these requests, there is no success fee associated with these jobs.

Once you have a trade account, you can manage your subscription from your subscription page.

  • Subscriptions are for 3 month terms and are renewed automatically unless cancelled prior to the end of the billing cycle.
  • If your subscription is set to automatically renew, you will receive renewal email reminder 7 days ahead of the renewal.
  • Plan upgrades happen immediately and plan downgrades happen at the end of your billing cycle.
