Paperound is a marketplace for busy small busineses to access student resource, on-demand.
‘Taskers’ on the platform can be booked for as a little as one hour on a task-by task basis, and founders only pay when the work is done.
For founders, we give them access to extra resource at the times they need it most, without needing to commit to a full-time hire.
All Paperound Taskers are verified UK students that are pre-vetted by the Paperound team. We handpick high calibre students for their initiative, skillsets and business acumen.
Taskers set their own price and availability. They work independently to help founders get their tasks done.
For students, we give them a way to earn money and build their experience.
Tips for a great Paperound experience
A tight and clear brief will help both parties achieve their desired outcome. For buyers, make sure the Tasker has all the information they need and are clear on exactly what you want from them. For Taskers, if you are unsure, take the time to ask questions and clarify specifics.
Our instant messaging is a quick way to send links to resources and stay updated with each other during the task. Making sure to communicate often helps track progress and squash any problems before they develop further.
Break it down
Breaking tasks down into chunks is a great way to stay focused and productive. Our Taskers are booked by the hour. If it turns out that the task requires more time from the Tasker, just book them again for the extra hours you need.
Frequently asked questions
Generally, tasks that can be briefed easily, but take a while to do. These may be tasks that have some aspect of repetition or perhaps a more manual element to them, where an extra pair of (remote) hands really helps chip away at getting it done.
Our Taskers get used for all sorts of business tasks which are being added to everyday. Typical ones cover; marketing content, administration, UX testing, data analaysis, and market research.
When you order a Tasker in Paperound we hold the payment while the task is being worked on. Only when the buyer marks the task as complete, will our payment provider release funds to the Tasker.
Note: If a service buyer forgets to mark the task as complete, we automatically release payment 7 days after the Tasker was booked.
Buyers have the option to dispute a transaction. In this case, someone from the Paperound team will then investigate the case by reading the message history and by asking both parties to submit their case of argument (which may include evidence of outputs). From there a decision is made to either refund the order, or cancel the dispute and process the transaction.
We know people like to interact with their Taskers in different ways. We provide a nifty instant messaging feature, but you are also free to email, arrange video or phone calls. It’s up to you! We’re all about helping you get more done in your own way.
All of our Taskers are verified UK students who have been pre-vetted by the Paperound team based on their initiative, skillsets and business acumen. All of our Taskers are also reviewed after each booking.
Some businesses prefer to try out just a couple of hours to begin with, before booking Taskers for longer periods of work.
Finally, your funds are protected and only released when you sign off on the work.
