Best for: tradies and small trades businesses
hipages is an online marketplace that connects tradies with homeowners. You will need an ABN and the appropriate industry licences to list your services on hipages, and you must complete a screening process and pass regular insolvency checks.
Customers describe the work they need done and the platform matches the job with relevant tradies in the customer’s local areas. Lead invitations are then sent to matched tradies, who can choose to accept or decline the lead.
hipages charges tradies a fee per accepted lead. These fees vary widely depending on the trade category, location of the job, size of the job and marketing spend. Generally, you can expect to pay around $15 for small job leads and more than $20 for larger ones.
