Don't waste your money with Oneflare
useless support team and its not good for sellers, sucking hard earned money for useless leads and refunding back, Dont waste your money with oneflare, Useless platform-- doing unfair business
I used Oneflare to hire a company for steamed cleaning of my carpets (in the end of the tenancy). The company´s name is MaidPro. The service was booked for today but nobody came and the phone number was not available. I am much more than disappointed.
As a business owner please don't be scammed by these people, they enjoying your money, make sure the auto top up is turned off otherwise Goodluck they drain your banks account even while you are a sleep.
I couldn’t login so had to call them. I was told they reset my details. It failed so I had to call back again. They told me they sent an email to reset my password. It didn’t arrive. So I had to ring back again. They told me my own email address was wrong. Had it for years. No help do I asked to speak to a manager. No help. Just terrible. Can’t use app so off to use Airtasker instead.
They don't publish your negative ratings...
I publish one concrete job and I was provided with one tradie. They caused a real problem in their job . I reported them to Oneflare and tried to put reviews for the company named as AS CONCRETE PTY. They didn't publish my reviews. It always came up as technical error. Then after struggling making attempts many times I emailed Oneflare to help with that. My goal was to share my experience with people who could be next victim. They wrote they would help me in publishing. Which never happened.
So be aware if you are choosing any tradies through Oneflare by looking at their good reviews. They could be fake or made.
BUNCH OF PESTS
Most annoying company. DO NOT RECOMMEND, makes you put your details in for a quote on their website, I've been harassed with over 30 calls in less than 5 days, calling consecutively 1 after the other at times if I didn't answer. Only 3 different numbers all claiming to be from OneFlare. Bunch of pests
customer service terrible
Extremely expensive for tradies to find work on it,
found it to be a scam, they boost businesses for who pays the most. Never used it and asked for a refund on the second day which supposedly they don't do.
extremely disappointed, left a bad review on fb was told someone would get back to me that was weeks ago.
Customer service is poor
The customer support is poor. Very unhelpful and didn't try hard enough to fix my issue which was very basic. All I wanted to know was why the notifications for messages stopped showing in my email as I don't use the app, I don't know when I'm being messaged. The response I you was they are being sent to my email. Ummm I just told you they're not. It has affected my ability to reply to businesses in a timely manner yet they don't care when I told them.
One flare incompetence
Looking for a gardener oneflare used wrong name and mobile number. Contacted their support and continued use of wrong name etc. Useless and incompetent. Do not use under any circumstance.
Used oneflare for business
Signed up for oneflare for My business. Paid $199 per month. Got minimal leads and zero work. Stayed with them for 3 months.
Not worth the money. Not enough leads and overpriced compared to their competitors. Wouldn't recommend.
Good if you are a regular user. Beware of credits expiring
The platform is pretty good, although you can no longer pay per quote. Instead you have to buy packs and they expire (which I don't agree with). Some people are not regular users and there are no email notification sent for when credits are about to expire. I had credits expire multiple times and tried to contact support and they kept "passing my enquiry to onto the relevant teams" and then stopped responding. Customer service is great only if you are spending money with them.
I feel scammed
I signed up to oneflare for my business. Straight away I recieved one quote request (first one free). Soon after i recieved a second and thought I'd give this a go. I placed down $20 they took $6.90 for just the one quote. Never heard from either quotes but also that was it. It all dried up. Just seemed a little coincidental that it all stopped as soon as I gave them money.
Way too expensive too. $6.90 for a quote for something that may not happen for any of the quotes seems all too much. If the "potential" client recieved three quotes oneflare recieved $20.70 with most probably no quoter recieving any funds.
A real scammer
Warning for business holders, most leads will connect you to the customers having FAKE contact details or not responsive at all. Oneflare will charge you regardless EVEN you can't communicate with the customers. If you call them to complain you will ONLY waste your time. I attached a job request which the customer never advertised and scammed those details.
Steels numbers to charge businesses
This company steels mobile numbers & sends them to trade people. The trades people are charged $10.00 for every number. But I do not have a oneflare account and do not need a service. So I had 5 texts and calls from trades people and did not want any services, oneflare will charge all 5 trades people for my number . They are getting numbers form some phone apps and lots more. Hope this helps. Don't use a service that's spoofing numbers to rip off tradies.
Be careful Businesses its a trap
I am an appliance technician, and suggest you to understand and read the t&c carefully. Was having a good enough credit and not able to use without paying every month.
Oneflare don't have enough lids , they send the lid which is not relevant, like your area or product is different,
And using my star ratings for making their rating better.
Hired an alleged handyman from this service who claimed he did tilework. Turns out he didn't, made a mess of three other tiles chipping all of them in the process of replacing one tile. In addition, the one tile he attempted to replace is sitting higher than all of the other tiles. The entire job he did is a disaster, to say the least!
Also, the individual hired from Oneflare also used a grinder Without any vacuum/suction and porcelain tile dust went airborne coating my entire 600 square meter(internal area) on two levels of my home!
The...entire experience has been nothing short of a nightmare......having to go out and spend much more money in hiring a licensed professional tiler and a commercial professional cleaner, to rectify and clean up the entire mess that this individual who was hired through Oneflare created! I would not recommend using Oneflare unless they start actually vetting the individuals whom advertise services on their platform, that's called being accountable, responsible, professional for their platform and any of the individuals who advertise on it! The entire experience is completely intolerable and unacceptable and no one should have to go through this!
- Verified customer
Scam, 90% of phone calls would hang up.
for a company this platform is the worst! the call system comes down to if you can answer the phone fast enough, talking about under 4 seconds and even then the phone call cuts out or another company gets the call.
felt like sometimes they do fact phone call and leads.
Don't use a company ? that doesn't fix it's mistakes
I posted a request for AUTO ELECTRICIAN after no take up on the original request Oneflare did search further but the two businesses that turned up were motor mechanics with limited electrical knowledge and the person who came admitted this after pulling the centre console apart and going online to a forum that told him what I already knew that I needed an "auto electrician" not an auto mechanic with limited knowledge since then this company has not accepted their mistake and even went further to tell me I should have third degreed the mechanic...al firm involved. They can't seem to see their failure as people who supply qualified people for work you need doing . My cost was numerous including cleaning my car for covid 19 . The part that takes the gaul in all of this is their advert. "10 Best Auto Electricians in Adelaide" that is the biggest lie I have ever read apart from President Donald Trump.
Remember! Oneflare takes NO responsibility for their technicians.
I had paid a deposit for a job that never took place because the electrician never showed up. (Total power installation is the company) I would suggest not to blindly trust technicians found of Oneflare. Oneflare takes no responsibility or action.
Don’t use Oneflare not worthy of even one star!
They accept no responsibility for companies they recommend who take your money and do not deliver goods or services paid for. Oneflare’s response to this is “just write a bad review!”

What is your process to assist with fair trading to stop your referrals taking peoples deposit and not completing job.
The businesses have lied to you, and you believe them without asking for any proof or receipts to validate their claims.
You never offered any assistance to have our money reimbursed, even after we went to the tribunal no assistance.
The tribunal found the business guilty and ordered them to return deposit immediately or risk loosing their licence after 28 days.
Thanks for doing nothing from your end.
Hey Shane, thanks for the question, When customers raise a complaint about a business we will attempt to mediate between business and customer to reach an agreement. In cases where the business refutes claims made by a customer there's usually not too much that we can do to investigate further without evidence. In cases like this I recommend that all customers seek advice from a relevant governing body who do have the power to investigate and the authority to judge who is at fault in a dispute.
I'd appreciate if you could contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org to provide us with an update about your dispute. If the business is refusing to return your deposit despite an official order we can restrict or remove them from our platform until we are satisfied that the business is operating within regulations.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
