2. Will the on board courier work be guaranteed?
Work is not guaranteed as some areas are more busy than others, for example a on board courier in London will be more busier than a OBC in San Diego. What this platform does is enables OBC's to offer such services in their locality, where normally such providers would not exist.
3. If i accept a mission then decide to cancel, what happens?
The number one rule in this industry is that if you accept a mission from a client you must complete it. No excuses. If we find out that a partner has let down a client by cancelling a live job, we take strict measures and will dissolve our partnership. You are free to refuse to do a mission, but once you accept you need to complete.
