Verifications Guide

Verifying payment sources

StartAJob accepts PayPal and major credit/debit cards. We carefully protect all financial information.

Once you’ve created an account, you must provide billing information and verify payment information before being able to deposit funds or receive transfers for completed work. You must deposit a minimum of $1.00 from your preferred payment source into your StartAJob account before being able to use funds to hire employees.

Begin by going to your profile and clicking Edit next to your username. On the Edit page, click the Billing Methods tab.

Add your preferred credit/debit card or PayPal information, following the step-by-step instructions provided for each payment type.

If you choose to enter a credit/debit card, you’ll need to complete a verification process before receiving any payments.

It works like this:

  • Once you enter your card information, we will bill your card a refundable charge of $1.00 to $2.99.
  • You’ll locate the charge on your card statement and use the associated charge number to verify your card in our system.
  • Once you verify your card, we’ll refund the original charge.
  • If you choose to use PayPal, follow the step-by-step instructions for connecting to your PayPal account.
Verifying company websites

StartAJob offers companies fully-branded, private job pages. Link from your company’s website to help job seekers find all open positions and boost applications for open jobs.

Our platform eliminates the need to develop job listing and application functions on your own. It lets your team focus on reviewing great candidates rather than managing job postings.

You get other benefits, too. When you link from your company site to your branded page on our platform, we’ll pay you a commission for every active user you send our way. Read more about our affiliate program here.

Adding a link to your custom company page will verify your website URL and start the commissions coming. The verification process also gives candidates more confidence and encourages applications.

StartAJob allows permanent job employers to post one job without verifying their company website. Additional job postings require website verification.

Verifying your company site is easy. Just add the following script to your site:

Login or signup to see your custom script.

Once you’ve added the script to your company site, go to your profile page and click the Edit link next to your username. Go to the My Company tab, enter your company website URL, and submit it for verification. Our systems will scan your company site for the script and complete the verification process.

Verifying your mobile phone number

Verifying your phone number confirms your identity and helps other users feel more confident working with you. We also require employers to verify their phone numbers and billing information before we can list their jobs in messages to employees.

To verify your phone number, go to your profile page and click the Edit link next to your user name. On the Edit Profile page, click the My Account tab.

Find your mobile phone information under Verifications. Click the Verify button and follow the step-by-step instructions. We’ll text a code to your phone that you will use to complete the verification process.
