It is important to understand how Nairaworkers operates. Understanding the system will make you a better Worker and a better Employer.

What is Nairaworkers?

Nairaworkers is an online marketplace that connects Freelancers around Nigeria with customers. Customers who need other people to help them to support their online/offline business come to Nairaworkers. Here they can hire Workers for easy and quick jobs (Small Jobs) where Workers become your Virtual Assistants. Nairaworkers is suitable for those who have less time for time demanding freelancing jobs and prefer to do quick tasks.

Who are Employers?

Employers are people who need help getting tasks done. Employers post new Jobs for Workers to complete and then review submitted tasks and pay Workers for their help.

Who are Workers?

Workers are people who enjoy helping others. Workers accept jobs they like and deliver results, then get paid.

How many accounts can I have?

Each person can only create one account. A user can be both, a Worker and an Employer at the same time. Any user who creates multiple accounts will be banned from Nairaworkers permanently.

What jobs can a Worker accept?

Workers should only accept jobs they are capable of finishing. Accepting a job and submitting a false or incomplete proof will raise a red flag. In most cases three (3) red flags lead to account termination.

What is Success Rate?

Workers must maintain a success rate of above 75% at all times (Satisfied tasks). Too many Not-Satisfied tasks will lower Worker's success rate. Low success rate prevents a Worker from performing jobs for the next 30 days.

How can I offer a job to Workers?

Go to My Jobs page, click on "Start a new small Job" and post your job or click "Post Job" in the Dropdown Menu. All Jobs submitted are reviewed for approval before displayed to the Workers.

Can I cancel my job that is still pending review?

Should you want to cancel a job before it is activated in the system, simply click on the Stop Job button in Job Details page. Funds locked for that Job will be credited back to your account.

Do Employers get charged for every task?

Employers pay only for tasks they are satisfied with. Nairaworkers does not charge any fees for tasks that did not meet requirements set by Employers. Employers have a chance to rate every submitted task.

How do I rate tasks?

Go to "My Jobs" page and choose the Job you wish to review. Click on the "Submitted tasks" link and a list of all submitted tasks will be displayed in a single page. Open each task to check the proof. Clicking "Approve" automatically transfers the fund you have set aside for a task to each individual Worker's account. You would only be paying for tasks you rate "Approved". Should you find a submitted proof unacceptable, click on the Disapprove button to decline such task. To Disapprove a task, you must enter a reason for declining the task and click "Disapprove". No tasks should remain open for more than 3 days. If you forget to rate your Workers' tasks, they will automatically be closed by the system and will be rated "Approved" after 3 days

Can I stop my job once it is running?

Should you want to end your Job even before all available positions have ran out, simply click on the Stop Job button in your Job Details page. Funds for unused positions will be credited back to your account.

How much should I pay per task?

Pay fairly. Although a particular amount has been set for each job, The best practice would be to ask yourself "Would I do that for ₦ 25?". If your answer is YES, then the price is right. If your answer is NO, you should increase the price.

Therefore we do not tolerate any illegal activities, scam, spam or trying to mislead other users in order to gain advantage, get free work or ask others to perform actions that are not legal. We monitor many things in the backend and as soon as we notice strange behaviour, we put such accounts on hold and contact the owner.
