How does AFODEL.COM work?
Freight Agent will register on AFODEL.COM and go through strict verification
process. Document upload will be verified by our security team, all freight agents must go through this verification with no exceptions, and
at the introduction of a new verification requirement by AFODEL , all
affected users will be subjected to it also.
customer will just have to register and post a job and let Freight Agents
quote for their jobs. Customers do not need to go through verifications
to be able to post a job on our website.
Agent Profile :
It is adviced that freight agents should fill up a proper profile
including images, then tick the option to be added to the Freight Agent
directory which displays at random on the front page. Having a strong
well described profile would help boost agent's chance of
winning jobs on Afodel.com. When describing profiles, agents
should be specific on their areas of expertise and if possible give an
idea of their starting price .
A freight agent is free to bid for jobs without any subscription, bidding for a job is free for agents, but to accept the job if won, the agent will need to be a verified member.
Freight Agent Payment: Afodel charges a 5% commission fee on jobs won by the agent, The 5%
commision fee will be paid by the customer during bid acceptance which
also serves as a 5% deposit deducted from the agent's total bid
amount and then pay the rest of the 95% with VAT or no VAT as
applicable to freight agent.
It is important we state here
that both customers and freight agents should take absolute precaution to
avoid fraud at this stage, this is where Afodel cannot excercise any
authority but we can help settle disputes if any arises.
A customer looking for a job to be executed by a Freight Agent is free to
use our platform at all times, no subcription fees will apply and
customer can post as many jobs as possible provided they are genuine and
different to each other. Jobs should not be replicated unless no bids
is placed on the job by trasporters within 30 days.
A customer will
pay a 5% commission + VAT on the total amount won on a bid by an agent. This 5% commission / deposit will make up part of the fee
to be paid by the agent to Afodel thus making the balance to the agent after the job has been executed to be 95% with VAT or
without VAT depending on Freight Agent's terms. ,
Note:Subscription , Commission and VAT rates are subject to adjustments according to government and market changes.
