Question: I would like to become a helper and have registered an account on the Xto1 website. Where can I find customers?
Our services to helpers are operated through the Xto1 mobile app. Registering on the website will not give you access to any customers. Unlike traditional classified ads site, we don’t list any customers or service providers on our website. When we receive requests from customers, we send notifications to relevant helpers through the Xto1 app, and the helpers can only accept requests through the app. You can also browse for open requests in the app.
We usually recommend helpers to register directly in the Xto1 app. But since you have already registered an account on the website, you don’t have to register again. Please follow the steps below.

To apply for digital badges, navigate to the Settings section of the app –> select My badges –> follow the instructions to upload evidence and submit your application.
That’s it. You are ready to go! Familiarise yourself with the app. We will send notifications to you as soon as we receive new requests local to you and matching your interest. Be quick to grab your phone when it rings, there will be other helpers in the same area competing with you for the same customer. Good luck!

Great there’s no service fee… so how does Xto1 make money?
Ha, that’s a question for us to work out. We’re aware of that other companies charge 15-35% for making connections for similar types of work. There are many ways we could have charged for our services, but we chose not to do so. We just want to make a product you love, a product that makes people’s life easier and makes communities better.
