How do I buy services on AgentSolo.com?
There are two ways to buy services on AgentSolo.com:
- You can publicly post your projects in order to receive and compare quotes from Solo Agents who are interested. This is a fast and effective solution for your company that allows you to save time, since you don’t have to contact Solo Agents; instead, they contact you. To find out more information, visit the How to Post a Project page.
- You may directly contact certain Solo Agents using the private messaging system. This solution requires more time, but it allows you to find Solo Agents whose profiles best correspond to your needs. You can subsequently negotiate in private with them.

What is a quote?
A quote is a Solo Agent’s response to the project that you have posted. In a quote, Solo Agents analyze your needs and then demonstrate their interest and ability to carry out the project. As a general rule, if your project description is clear and specific, the quotes will be as well
In the project description, which is accessible to members, only the first 95 characters of each quote are displayed. Only you can see the entire quote on projects you’ve posted.
Why don’t I see the entire quote on a project I’ve posted?
If you only see the first 95 characters of each quote, you probably are consulting the public project description, available to all members. To view the entire quote, consult the project description from the My Activities > Project Tracking section (you must log on first)
Who may submit quotes?
All Solo Agent Premium Members may consult project descriptions and submit quotes.
You can use the "invite a member to submit a quote" function at any time to ask a Solo Agent whose profile you are interested in to submit a quote. This function is accessible on the profile of each Solo Agent as well as in the directory and the search engine.
Please note that Solo Agent Guests cannot view the project descriptions or submit quotes unless you personally invite them by using the "invite a member to submit a quote" function .
How are projects awarded?
After the deadline you chose when you posted your project, you begin the “selection period.” You have ten (10) days to choose one of the quotes you’ve received.
During the selection process, you can use the private messaging system to contact the Solo Agents who submitted quotes.
Once you’ve made your decision, all you have to do is click on the "Award" link on your project-tracking page. One page displays all the Solo Agents who submitted quotes – just click on the name(s) that you have chosen. Then click on "Award" at the bottom of the page.
Are there any restrictions when awarding your project?
No. You can award the project to the Solo Agent of your choice. For example, if you requested an evaluation of the costs, you’re not obligated to select the lowest-cost quote. It’s up to you to decide which quote best meets your needs!
What happens if I’m not interested in any of the quotes I received?
You can extend the posting period of your project to give Solo Agents more time to submit quotes. During the extension, feel free to use the "invite a member to submit a quote" function to ask a Solo Agent whose profile you are interested in to submit a quote.
