1.2 Service Providers may make an Offer in response to a Service Request. Some parts of Offer details may be made publicly available, including to internet users who are not Users.

1.3 A Requester may revoke or modify a Service Request at any time before he/she accepts an Offer. Kwebo Technologies reserves the right to cancel all Offers on a Service Request made prior to the modification or amendment.

1.5 Upon creation of a Task Contract, the Requester must pay the Agreed Price into the Escrow Account.

1.6 Upon creation of the Task Contract, Kwebo Technologies has rendered Kwebo Technologies Services and the Service Fee is due and payable.

The Requester and Service Provider are encouraged to use Kwebo's app private messaging system and amend quote features, to amend or vary the Task Contract (including the Agreed Price) or to otherwise communicate.

1.8 The Service Provider must perform the Services required under the Task Contract, including in accordance with any additional terms or conditions agreed by the parties.

When this occurs, that User will be automatically notified of the new Service Request, and that the Requester would like the User to make an Offer to supply Services.
