Working with contractors can add additional bandwidth and specialist skills to your business for both long-term and short-term projects.But the cost of managing those contractors can quickly add up to hundreds — if not thousands — of dollars, even if you’re not actively using their services. Until today.

Other contractor solutions on the market charge a monthly fee for every contractor, regardless of whether the contractor has actually worked for you that month. We don’t think that’s right.

Now, when you use Remote Contractor Management we will only bill you for the contractors you actually work with in a given month — saving you money automatically every month.

Whether you work with contractors, employees, or a mixture of both, our Fair Price Guarantee makes it easy to stay on budget across the globe.

Never pay for inactive contractors again

Remote’s Fair Price Guarantee is just that — our commitment to you that your bill will always be predictable and fair, with no hidden fees, deposits, or unpleasant surprises.

How does our fair price guarantee work for contractors? Remote charges a flat-rate fee of just $29 only when a contractor has activity in that month. These activities include:

  • A contractor agreement is signed that month

  • A contractor submits an invoice that month

  • A contractor's invoice has been paid that month

Because Remote only charges for contractors with qualifying activities each month, you only pay for the services you actually use. That means you can save money and time without worrying about who is active, and who is not.

You can continue to securely store all of your documentation for your contractors on the platform, so when they start new projects, you’re ready to pay them right away. It’s not just better for your budget: it’s flexible, too!

The Fair Price Guarantee in action

Let’s look at an example of how Remote’s Fair Price Guarantee works. Let’s say in a particular month:

  • You onboard 10 existing contractors onto Remote.

  • Only two contractors submit invoices for work performed.

  • You pay both invoices.

  • One new contractor signs a contractor agreement.

In this scenario, you will be charged for just three contractors: the two who submit invoices and the one who signed a contractor agreement. That means instead of paying a management fee for all 11 seats, you only pay for the services you use, saving you hundreds of dollars!

Next month, if none of your contractors are active, you won’t receive a bill. If five have activities, you’ll receive a bill for five. It’s easy, it’s predictable, and best of all, it’s the most cost-effective way to work with global contractors.
