UniDosh is a marketplace that has two halves. One side is strictly for students and the other side is for members of the public and businesses. UniDosh offers a platform that allows students to find work and accept jobs. UniDosh is built up of the sellers (seeking to provide a service they believe others may find helpful at a reasonable price) and buyers (anybody seeking to book a service or request a task at a reasonable price). UniDosh acts as the link between these two parties. When a buyer proceeds with a request for a service, their request appears on a job board called ‘Available Jobs’. This job board is only visible to students. Once a service has been completed and the buyer has confirmed they are happy to pay, UniDosh collects payment from the buyer and pays the seller. We take a commission for enabling connections between the buyers and sellers, and this commission is taken at the same time the seller is paid. UniDosh does not allow for cash transactions. It is free to register with UniDosh as a buyer and seller, and it is free to register a service on our database as a seller once an agreement to the terms of service have been accepted. UniDosh requires certain information, including your name, university, university email address, and an up to date picture of yourself. As a seller, in order to accept a job and/or register a service, you must verify that you have a student email address. This verification will be removed once a year and you will be asked to re-verify your student identity. This is to remove any individuals who may have graduated, dropped out or left university/college for any other reason. You understand and agree that UniDosh acts as an agent and is not a party to agreements entered into between sellers and buyers. No contract exists between UniDosh and the students for the services. UniDosh is not an employment agency or contracted agency and has no control over the conduct or suitability of buyers and sellers to post or complete the jobs, and that satisfactory completion of a job is solely determined between the parties. It is a condition of use of the services that the parties acknowledge they have complete control over their own conduct and the outcome of the services, and UniDosh disclaims all liability in this regard.
In order to register as a student with UniDosh you must be a current student at university or college . Proof of your student status is required before you are able to accept a job or enlist a service. We reserve the right to refuse access to the UniDosh platform to any individual at any time without explanation. Verification of the account will not be authorised until the student has confirmed acceptance which will be sent via email to their University email address ending in”ac.uk.”
A clear photo of the student is required on sign up to allow a customer to verify that the student completing the service, is in fact; the student they booked.
