Live Wire provides opportunities for casual hire and secure payment of practically skilled workers! Information for Hirers section
For your own privacy and protection, we recommend not sharing personal details until the booking has been made. Do not give your telephone number and do not provide your exact address when registering – your Suburb is ample to locate Live Wires near you.
If you are outside of South Africa, you will not be able to use Live Wire now as it is currently only available in this country.
If you are in South Africa but receiving this message, chances are your phone’s app store is set to another country. Please check your profile settings in the play store or app store and change to South Africa if you are going to be in the country long enough to utilise the app.
We always recommend messaging more than one of your ‘matches’ and selecting the one that best meets your needs and availability.
We encourage you use Live Wire’s online payment feature for making payments. Making an online payment gives you protection i.e. in case of dispute, you can request a refund. Also, making an online payment is the only way to collect feedback. Once you have booked a WORKER Live Wire holds the funds securely until you confirm that the service has taken place. Only then are funds transferred to the WORKER.
We use Peach Payments, a leading platform for secure payments. When a user opts to store card details Live Wire, these details are stored by Peach Payments in a PCI DSS level 1 compliant vault. Sensitive cardholder details are directly transmitted from users’ browsers to Peach Payment’s systems. Merchants' staff and systems do not have access to complete card number details at any point in time, on Peach Payments platforms.
If you work your way through the registration process on www.livewire.work, you will have provided everything needed to start finding work!
Please bear in mind that Live Wire is for busy people to find help with daily household challenges - this is not for you if you are looking for mainstream workplace employment!
Once you have registered and verified your account (either on the website www.livewire.work or on the App) please go through the steps to complete your user profile and ensure you have provided the following information:
For short term projects, you will be paid once the HIRER has confirmed the project is complete. For long term projects, payment is made once per month. Payment date is set for 25 th of the month. The minimum pay-out is R100, When payment has been released, it will reflect in your bank account in 2 – 3 working days.
Live Wire charges a commission of 10%. This amount is automatically deducted from the payment made by the HIRER. Make sure the minimum hourly rate you set allows for our commission.
We highly encourage you to always collect payment via the platform. This allows you to receive feedback. The more feedback you collect (even if it is from the same customer) the higher your listing appears on our platform.
Part time work is employment which is fewer hours each week than full time employment. In South Africa, an average working week is 45 hours, so anything below this would be considered part time work.
