Q. How is this different from other job / employment sites?

Q. How is this different from sites like Craigslist?
A. GigNewton.com is much safer than Craigslist. We use Paypal and Stripe for payment. We have a feedback system, a level system and a rating system to make sure that transactions go smoothly. We also have a customer service support team that monitors and follows up on each transaction.
Q. I don't have a PayPal account. Can I still pay for a service?
A. Even if you don't have a PayPal account, you can still pay using the PayPal.com system. All you need to do is click the "I don't have a PayPal Acccount" link (on the PayPal site) when ordering.
Q. I'm not satisfied with the end result. How do I get it fixed?
A. Throughout the job process, you're able to communicate with the seller regarding your particular job. If the service was delivered, and it's not what you wanted, you can communicate this to the seller. In most cases, the seller will fine tune your order to make sure that he/she gets a positive feedback rating from you.
Q. What happens if we have a disagreement with the transaction?
A. It's important that the seller makes sure the buyer is satisfied. His/Her reputation is on the line. Feedback is very important to the seller's account. That being said, the buyer must restrain from immediately leaving a poor feedback. Our transaction communication process has been put in place to make sure the deal goes as smoothly. GigNewton wants to make sure both parties are satisfied and have a successful transaction. We have a resolution procedure if both parties cannot resolve matter on their own.
