Estimate is a software development platform where customers can find developers for their digital projects and sales managers can find a development team for their customers. The main goal is to develop high-quality projects and to build a reliable partnership with customers and independent sales managers.

With Estimate, you don't have to look for a development team, communicate with them struggling with complicated technical terminology and spend time controlling and monitoring project development. We will do that for you.

To be verified, you must provide copies of your identity documents and proof of your registration address. These can be a passport, ID card, driver's license for identity verification, and document confirming the address for address verification. After providing all the required information, the verification process starts.

You must provide a high-quality scanned copy or photograph of the document. All pages of uploaded documents shall not be cropped, and all information must be clearly visible.

Important! The identity document must be valid for at least another 6 months after the date of verification.

After successful upload, we will check your documents within 3 business days and notify you about the result on your account mail.

If any document or information was rejected, we will provide you with the reason to pass verification again.

Your Transaction History is available on the Wallet page. It allows you to monitor your balance and all financial transactions easily - withdrawal, commission, payment. You can download an invoice for each of the transaction types.

Also, here you can withdraw your funds accrued from your partner structure after getting KYC verification.

If your personal data has changed, you can reset your verification on the Verification page and add your new data to prove your identity.

Verification is carried out within 3 business days.

We comply with the principles of KYC and require our partners to take identity verification. Verification goals are to increase the level of protection when withdrawing funds from your balance. Verification allows us to make sure that you are exactly the person you claim to be.

All this is necessary to fully ensure the security of financial transactions of our customers and partners.

If you work with us as a Partner, the identity verification procedure is mandatory. Without verification, you will be able to continue working with us, but will not be able to withdraw funds from your balance.

To request a project development, identity verification is not required.

You can pass the verification here.

Verification is usually carried out within 3 working days, but we will do our best to complete it asap.

For the completed projects of the partners you’ve invited directly (i.e. your first line) you will get a 7% reward. For the projects of the second line you’ll receive a 3% bonus, and for the projects of the third line - a 1% bonus.

Your total available balance is displayed on your Dashboard, as well as on My Wallet page. After a certain milestone of a project is done, your commission is accrued, which you can see in your transaction history, as well as download invoice if needed.

We cannot disclose the cost of each project of your partners, as this is confidential information, and we take things very seriously. Although, you can find the information about the total number of your partners, their active projects by each line, and the commission percentage you’ll get after the project is done.

The commission percentage you can see on My Partners page by each line of partners accordingly.

Projects is the number of active projects brought by your partners to the platform.

It is a three-level structure of your partners, for which you receive your commission after the project milestones are completed and approved by the Customer.

A Business Partner gets an extra profit from each level of his partners.

The commission is the following:

  • Level One - 7% of each project
  • Level Two - 3% of each project
  • Level Three - 1% of each project

Share your personal referral link and get others to register on the platform. All those you invited directly are your first-line partners. If they invite others, the latter are your second-line partners. Your third-line partners are those invited by your second-line partners.

You can withdraw your funds if:

  • your profile is verified

Milestones of the project have 5 statuses: New, In progress, Acceptance, Dispute, Done, which display the progress of the development accordingly. Each milestone also has financial status displayed - Unpaid (still due to payment), Pending (the proforma invoice has been raised by you and we are awaiting the payment to our bank account), Paid (payment has been successfully received).
