In other words, the first Pro to claim the job will win the work, without having to worry about any competition. Because the jobs are all fixed-price, however, if there are extra cost Pros will be able to amend the final invoice.

- A customer needs to pay for a job on Plentific Instant before they can book it. In other words, you are guaranteed to get paid as soon as the work is completed.

How do I claim a prepaid lead?
If you want to claim a prepaid lead, start by logging in to Plentific and selecting the ‘Leads’ tab in your dashboard. Next, select the prepaid lead you are after. On the next page, you will see an option marked ‘Buy this lead’. The next screen will show three potential timeslots posted by the customer.
If you are not available for any of the dates and times specified, you must not take the job. You should not expect to be able to arrange a new timeslot with the customer - they are in a hurry, after all! If you can work during one of the timeslots and are happy to take on the job, click on the button marked ‘I am sure. Let’s do this!’
Remember that prepaid leads are first come first served. Do not wait to claim the lead, or another tradesman might grab it first!
