I just would like to know how bidding works. I mean do I really have to pay $1 each time I bid? And what about the premium membership? If I am a premium member, is it then free for me to bid?

Thanks for your answers

Paying for Job Bids Mar 11, 2002

Job bidding is a pay for bid system. There are many ways in which you can pay:

You can use BrowniZ points (100 points per bid). All new members receive 300 BrowniZ points upon registration.

To see how you can earn additional BrowniZ points, please see >How can I get BrowniZ?<

You can deposit money in your \"\"> Wallet and each bid will be charged against it. It costs $1 per bid.

Premium members ($60.00 per year) and Platinum members ($120.00 per year) can bid on an unlimited number of jobs.

What if you're not in the USA? Mar 21, 2002

I am a new (brown) member. I have put 3 or 4 bids so far. This means that I\'ve used already a few brownies. If you\'re not in the States what happens when you run out?

How would someone in the UK pay? Specially if one feels a bit weary about giving credit card details and the likes on the net.

Thank you all.
