FAQ's


Would Jper recommend me on which service provider (service professional) to select from?


Jper will not provide you with any recommendations on which designer or contractor to hire. However, you may refer to their ratings and view their portfolio on Jper when you receive their quotes. We suggest you to carefully review each proposal or quote that you receive from the service professionals as price may not be the best indicator of a company’s service quality.


Why should I continue to use Jper for my remodeling after I have made a match?


Although it seems more straightforward to directly work with your service provider (serivce professional), it is crucial to keep track of your cost items and be clear on what you will be charged on throughout your project. In many cases, contractors may be ambiguous on listing out all their items and you may not be aware of the breakdown when you receive your invoice. With Jper, your service providers must upload all cost items for your review and approval before they can issue an invoice. You will pay your invoices via Jper with the available funds on your account. Lastly, Jper will withhold 10% of your total invoiced amount as retention, and this lump sum will only be disbursed to the contractor after your confirmation on project completion.


How do I pay my interior designer or contractor via Jper?


After a successful match, you will need to deposit available funds to your account before officially commencing your project on Jper.

Simply make a deposit to our designated Jper bank account using bank transfer or ATM with cash or cheques, then submit a “Fund Deposit Notice” on Jper to notify us of your action. We will then review and post the amount to your Jper account. You can then pay your invoices directly with Jper.


Can I withdraw my available funds on my account before project completion?


Yes, you may request for a withdrawal of the remainder available funds on your account anytime before or after project completion. However, we do not recommend you to withdraw your available funds if there are any unpaid invoices on your account.
