A message from Nabbesh Founders to all our Friends & Owls.
Nabbesh is very proud to announce the launch of our new payment services, bringing us one step closer to providing our community of nearly 30,000 freelancers all the tools you need to work your way — and get paid! At Nabbesh, our vision is to be the preeminent platform for every independent worker and freelancer in the MENA region, providing you with a simple, easy to use, one-stop platform, to bring you more work opportunities and financial prosperity.
Our Vision: To connect every freelancer in the MENA region with a job!
When we started Nabbesh, we began with only a vision and the determination to make that vision a reality by improving the way MENA’s men, women, and youth work. Our goal is to create a virtual marketplace for people looking to break out of the confines of outdated work models. Technology has already revolutionized the ways we connect with friends, search for music, and now the way we search for, find, and get paid for project-based work!
One of our community members, Tariq Mehmood, was able to showcase his work to HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Ruler of Dubai, all because of Nabbesh. Nabbesh is truly a marketplace that provides unlimited exposure and merit based opportunities for our community, no matter where they live.
Nabbesh also prides itself on listening and quickly adapting to the needs of our highly-skilled community. In a recent study, Nabbesh found that 30% of our freelancers have had a client who never paid them! For us, that number was too high, and we personally know the negative impact that not getting paid can have on your daily lives. So we worked hard to provide a solution to this problem!
Getting Paid Just Got Easier
We know that there are risks associated with working for someone across borders, or online, and we also know that not everyone can commute to an office or work in more traditional ways. But we see the potential in you, and we have harnessed technology to make getting paid securely online simple. Our new payment system now allows you to send a work proposal, a deposit request or an invoice, while providing an escrow service, giving you more peace of mind.
What does this mean exactly? It means that people like Ameera in Jordan can work for people like Sami in Dubai, negotiate a work proposal on Nabbesh, and Ameera can actually see the deposit that Sami makes online through Nabbesh before she even begins her work. And with our credit card payment options and our options to receive payments through bank transfer, we have improved the way you hire, pay, and receive money for your work. No bank account? No problem! Nabbesh also offers simple payments through money transfer services (i.e., Western Union). We are taking the headache out of freelancing in this region.
Benefits of Nabbesh’s New Services:
-No need for paperwork. Send proposals, deposit requests & invoices via Nabbesh
-Transparency & convenience through secure online payments
-Freelancers can receive payments via bank or money transfer services (i.e., Western Union)
-Track project history, agreements, milestone changes, all in one place on Nabbesh
-A two way rating system which helps you build a reputation and improve your visibility
We hope you like the new and improved Nabbesh! Work your way and try it today!
