Make money in the challenging times with own gig-marketplace
What is VMESTY?
As all gig platforms VMESTY connects those who want with those who can.
Starting as freelancer sites today gig economy includes countless works (taxi, cleaning, agent shopping etc). You may use gig-marketplace for matchmaking of any type: to connect patients with doctors, students with teachers, artists with producers, politicians with activists to name a few.
How does VMESTY work?
1) The Asker (anyone who is in need of something) publishes the request;
2) VMESTY informs the Givers (those who can do what the Asker requests) of the new request;
3) One of the Givers sends the offer;
4) The Asker accepts the offer (or rejects and waits for another offer) and pays in escrow account (in your account);
5) The funds are released after the Giver fulfills the request.
The Administrator (you) controls the integrity/professionalism of Givers and fulfillment of orders and enjoys commissions.

To say long story short we allow you to start with smallest investment, but with full customization and without headache about technical matters. You may concentrate on developing business, we will take care of the rest.
First, we minimize your risk by sharing it with you. Here we are unique: we do not only sell VMESTY, we also lease fully customized, made to fit your plans platform until your start-up will become solid enterprise. The package for lease includes using the platform, support, development and managing payments. And all these are with the symbolic upfront payment.
To design fully functioning gig platform (like Uber or Upwork) you need dozens of professionals working many months not speaking about at least six-figure investment. This is definitely not an option for everybody.
Of course, you can buy white label or clone. But you will soon realize that such "universal" thing correlates with your business model only partially. To customize your clone you will need again a huge investment.
But this is not the only problem. Seller of clone will soon leaves you with the code which only he can develop further while developer of white label will move in the direction, which he considers right for his business, not important what you think about such updates. Each business is individual and each successful business develops. Buying the clone or white label you make yourself a hostage (not to say a slave) of developer.
Where are we different?
Second, we customize VMESTY for your needs from the very beginning and support you as long as you need.
Third, VMESTY is designed in Wix.com user-friendly environment that allows you do not think about hosting and exploit the convenient UI as well as a lot of useful tools for dealing with SEO, DB management, CRM, marketing and so on.
But first, we minimize your risks by forming together with you the one team for your most difficult times - until your business will become viable.

VMESTY Invites Givers
The request is published on noticeboard and is emailed to the givers, who expressed interest in such type of requests.
