What is the fee for using Jam Pan?

There is no fee for creating a profile, browsing jobs and bidding on work.

When you win work as a supplier or freelancer, we charge a fee based on the value of the work. This fee starts at 18% which we deduct from the amount we pay you.

Jam Pan will automatically subtract the relevant Fee from the contract value when the Client makes a payment to Jam Pan and then pay you the Supplier the balance net of the fee.

So if your day rate is £200, you’ll get paid £164 by us.

The fee reduces based on how much work you win via Jam Pan in a 12 month period, so the more you win, the more you’ll earn.

The stepped 12 month Fee structure from March 1st each year as follows:
