Building Trust and Transparency: MyCraft’s Approach to Contractor Payments

In the home improvement industry, trust and transparency are the foundation of successful projects. When these critical factors are absent, challenges arise, often resulting in a payment issue. That’s why, at MyCraft, we’ve developed innovative features to build trust and transparency that revolutionize payment practices in the industry.

The Payment Stand-off – One of the biggest concerns for both contractors and clients is handling payments. Whether it is an initial deposit or final payment, clients worry about contractors abandoning a project, while contractors are concerned about not receiving full and prompt compensation for their work. These concerns, different perspectives on risk and lack of trust have long plagued the industry, often leading to misunderstandings and disputes.  

Alignment with Payment Milestones – MyCraft has introduced a powerful feature that aims to address payment concerns head-on. With our platform, contractors can easily create payment milestones within their proposal. This feature enhances communication and transparency, ensuring that both parties understand and agree on the payment structure before the project even begins.

By outlining payment milestones within the proposal and managing them throughout the project on MyCraft’s centralized platform, contractors and clients can avoid misunderstandings and disputes down the road. Clients always know when and how much they’ll need to pay, and contractors have a clear understanding of when they can expect compensation for their work. 

The “Pre-Funded” Payment Option – MyCraft goes a step (or a leap) further in building trust between clients and contractors with our “pre-funded” payment option. This innovative, escrow-like functionality is seamless to use and benefits both the contractor and client. 

Here’s how it works: once the client approves and funds a project proposal, the entire project value is securely held by MyCraft. Funds are released to the contractor only when both parties agree that specific milestones have been successfully reached. This approach provides clients with peace of mind, knowing their funds are held securely until they see progress.  For contractors, they know their client is fully committed and that they will be paid for their work.

A win-win situation that fosters trust and transparency throughout the project
