Horrible, I went through Oneflare for my electrical work, the work done was shocking and has been confirmed as 100% illegal work.
Oneflare has admitted on the phone that they don't check if the workers are qualified just if they have an ABN. I now have to pay another electrician to go through and fix up the works.
Also submitting a complaint to Fair Trade as Oneflare do not care at all.
Do not I repeat do not use Oneflare it is not worth the stress.
Beware of Oneflare.
Hired a landscaper on Oneflare to build a retaining wall. This is what I got for my troubles. Unlicensed tradies. Damage to my property is heartbreaking. Whole job needs to be ripped out and started from scratch.
Now pursuing our legal rights.
Don’t waste your time, Do not give credit card as your money disappears and it’s your fault .
Calls do not come through although your phone rings then they take your money to top up subscription waste of time
I can only advise as a small business owner to try free listing on Yellow pages
Someone you can TRUST
I paid my quarterly payments they took my money and they removed my credits too.
No job and empty ads coming.
I had my previous credit 240 now they removed it.
Money ripper website
Oneflare is just a money ripper for professionals, artists and small service providers. With around $100 per month you usually get nothing, and they hide the unsubscribe button on purpose, so when you decide to unsubscribe you can only find a misleading button there and they keep deducting money from your bank account, and refuse to refund.
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
No mobile so no quote.
I tried to get a quote but i don't have a mobile phone. I couldn't continue with the quote process and when i opened the chat box i was told because they cant send me an sms they couldn't give me a quote.
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.

Hi Donna, we have an article on our Help center that can answer your question.
Shaggy Tails Dog grooming, qouted for a job for me Joanne Nehmer. They are scamming and I believe looking at stealing pets. I gave them the suburb and street name. They wanted the number. I said I would give it to them when on the morning that the job was booked. They said they wanted it now. I said I would report them to the police and to you, I have reported through scam watch, and am now reporting to you. Can you please let me know that you have taken some action.
