FAQ For Salespeople

How does Sellcrowd work?

It’s free and easy to create a profile on the Sellcrowd website and apply for sales positions. Sales positions are usually part time and remote (work from home) in nature. Companies typically offer an hourly rate or a ‘talk time’ hourly rate if the Sellcrowd app is in use as a primary method of measuring sales productivity.

How do I get paid?

The Sellcrowd app logs the amount of time you spend on phone calls on behalf of clients and bills the client for that time. For hourly sales roles, you must log hours via timesheet through the Sellcrowd App or through our online portal.

If I get hired on Sellcrowd, am I an employee of Sellcrowd or the client?

Neither. Sellcrowd is a sales freelancing website, so you will be providing sales services under contract to each client. As such, you will need an ABN or registered business entity if you are located in Australia. Overseas sales applicants will require a registered business entity in their respective locality.

How does training work? 

When clients are opting to use the Sellcrowd app, training collateral such as sales scripts, product information, objection handling and videos are uploaded by the client into the training portal inside the app. For hourly roles, it is up to the client how and when they deliver sales training.
