What a joke. They rip you off and take your money as a small business. Do not use
Not clear about credits running out. Wasted $50 for nothing. They don't explain things clearly and when you don't want to spend $100/month, they just ignore you. Not a wise business investment
WORST COMPANY FOR BUSINESSES
if you are a business, I suggest you never advertise with oneflare. They are one of the worst companies and we have had the worst experience with them. If I had an option to give them negative rating, I would happily do it.
If you run a services business dont even spend a dollar on them. Save your money
If you run a services business dont even bother to deal with them, they wont send u any thing in writting will call you and push you to pay now and will promise you all the rainbows and glitters but kn actual nothing… you have to keep chasing them wont answer your calls and neither will reply your email, better to donate that money to some hunger one instead of this dodgy company.
Terrible service for business
These guys are trying to be like hipages.
But they can’t compete.
Their whole set up and system for the business side of things is ridiculous.
Not only that they often direct debit your acc with out your consent.
Don’t waste your money or your time here
waste time and money.
If you are a business owner. This is the best place to waste time and money.
The employee convinced me to pay $200 one time for trying new customers.
That did not work at all.
And when I told them that I don't want to continue. They told me that the system needs 15 days to stop the monthly payment.
24 days passed and they withdrew another $200.
Now my account is empty because they are trying to withdraw $200 for the third month.
There is no way to stop it. Just switch your bank account just as you would deal with hackers.
They are a group of pr...
Horrible to deal with an absolute rip off for tradies with there $99 a month they want for a certain number of leads per month only to get a bunch of total time wasting customers to never reply again once you've spent sometimes half a day depending on location and money to Oneflare.
I tried to cancel my subscription only for a lady named [Name Removed] to keep hanging up on me and blocking my number they said I had to give them 15 days notice in which they never advised me of this before, I was promised a call back but no one rang me just took the $99 for the next month.
Dodgie business practices
I signed up to Oneflare and a month into it I get a call from Word of Mouth
He never mentioned Word of mouth was owned by Oneflare even Worked out of the same office.
He told me that he saw my reviews on Oneflare and they needed someone in my area to service calls they were receiving, and that they needed someone that bad, they would drop the price by 50% ($400).
Also told me customers would call me directly.
I paid the money and screened my calls to see if they were generated form WOM or Facebook.
A month or two after signing up with WOM, I p...
I would highly not recommend this company they have the worst customer service team and the manager was really rude. I called them to cancel my membership and the lady said the manager will give me a call back that day but i got the call back couple days later when i got the call back i told them to cancel my membership, two weeks later i got charged from my account when I called them the case manager refused to give me a refund because i needed to cancel 15 day before my renewal date and during the call I explained to him i was not satisfied a...t the jobs i was getting that’s why i am canceling my membership and he gave me a big lecture on how my mindset was wrong this is how they treat their customers it is very disappointing and very unprofessional
Scam Scam Scam
I don’t recommend this for any business owner trying to get a job. They are nice and helpful only till they get you onboard and then after getting no jobs when you try to cancel the subscription be prepared to wait for months before they cancel it or you will eventually have to cancel your debate card and get a new one. That’s how bad they are. Scam scam scam.
Usually you will receive " Thanks, but I’m going another direction" but
I have to pay $10 to $20 for a quote. most client do not specified response after a time and lot reason that I con not follow quote up more, when client request more quote I have to pay for quote and can not refund, even when client response to me "Hi" I have to pay. Refund is a joke. If I do not use from my credit, it will be expired. If I get 3 time six on dice then I can refund. This is my experience.
Awful for businesses
Every time a business quotes you and responds to your enquiry it costs them about $30. The only people that make money out of this is OneFlare. I’m a good business and wasted a huge amount of time for hardly any work. I think it should be illegal preying on businesses like this. They never give the refund credits - in 6 months and over 50 times I put in to get refund credits they were denied. It’s a total rip off to businesses. Spend your money on advertising instead! It might seem convenient as a consumer but you’re better to get in direct touch with them. Also, this whole model encourages price shopping so if you have a more valuable product or service you don’t win any work.
Ripping off small businesses!
As a small business owner, I was hoping Oneflare could help however they do very little. Authentic customers are few amongst the many that post jobs. There is so little information available that's it's impossible to grasp the customer's needs let alone provide a rough quote. So you are required to pay a fee in credits between $10-20 (which is on top of $430 every 3 months just to use the service) to open up communication to the customer only to not get a response from the majority of them. When queried about the lack of detail, I was told by t...he sales member Marlon that more customer information would be available once I upgrade my plan. This was a lie and I was misled. I asked for a refund on that basis. This was denied. That's false advertising and I'm raising this with the office of Fair Trade. Oneflare made contact with me from this review. Gave lip service and promised to investigate. Then nothing. After 2 months still no refund after my first request. The whole business model is a SCAM. I wish there were more review sites to spread the word.
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.
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.
