In TeacherOn, you can pay any teacher on the website - no matter which country the teacher is in.
We get frequent emails from students who paid money in advance but didn't get the service satisfactorily.
Also, many genuine teachers don't want to work without an advance as they are afraid that they won't be paid after they do the work. Many of these teachers have already lost money to unreliable students.
But, you can't know if the person is genuine or if they will stop replying after you pay them.
We built this system to prevent fraud and make it easy for teachers and students to trust each other.
Paying via us has the following advantages. You can:
It's free for you. However, to cover the taxes, payment gateway fees, and snacks, we charge 15% of the payment from teachers. If you pay them in TeacherOn coins, then we reduce the fee to 10%
You can say them something like:
"I am afraid of paying in advance without any security. I will deposit money in your TeacherOn account and release it once you have completed the work."
If you have lost money to someone, do mention that as well.
