frequently asked questions
We understand your concerns but that is not the case. We have a thorough vetting process to ensure everyone is qualified and setting strong standards for the industry.
Our network consists of talented and quality focused companies who have a commitment to making a positive impact on the environment with their work. They have deep knowledge of native and edible plants, understand soil health, and know how to build self sustaining ecosystems that benefit the ecology, wildlife and the property owners.
We add a markup on top of your costs to ensure you receive everything you need to complete the project and feel confident in taking on the next one.
We have learned from other service providers that there are two paths that work for them.
1. Some will not give a price onsite because they do not like to make estimates without doing some research. They will let the customer know they need to go back and figure out what it will be and get back to them.
2. You can speak in wide ranges so that you will be covering your cost and ours.
Absolutely. We want everyone that joins us to be doing the best and highest work so we have developed our platform that will allow multiple users to work on the same project. We can connect you with one of our trusted designers so that you can quote out the design and get to work once the customer has approved the design.
We begin by asking you some brief questions about you and your company, then one of our members of our Supplier Development team will reach out to schedule an introductory call. The call lasts about 30 minutes and allows us to learn more about you and for you to ask any questions on your mind. If all goes well and we can bring value to you, we will send you a more in depth profile building questionnaire so that we will have a deep understanding of the projects you want to do, the requirements to take them, etc. After you complete this, we will schedule a virtual onboarding/training meeting with you so walk you through the process and platform we have developed. Click “Get Started” on our service provider landing page to begin!
The background check is required for our insurance policy and we want to provide confidence for every customer that they know their service provider is insured, licensed, and has passed a background check. We use a 3rd party company called CheckR so Thrive Lot will never have access to your SSN.
While we maintain a terms of service agreement with customers, we do not have a contract with each customer for services performed. We serve as your representative and will facilitate getting your company’s contract signed with the customer via DocuSign
Congratulations! Yes, please sign up. To help you get experience, we can partner you with an Ecosystems Specialist in your area who is doing similar work so that you can learn from them in a mentor relationship.
No way! We know that forcing people into bidding drives their value down. We hand select each project to ensure that the customers vision, goals, and information aligns with the service provider so they will be excited to take it.
Thrive Lot serves a payment processor for you. We combine the invoices for all parties working on a phase and then give the customer one invoice. After they make payment, we pay you.
You do! If needed we can give recommendations based on what your peers are charging for the same type of work.
We use Stripe to link our bank account to yours so that we can transfer you money. We pay you $250 for each Site Assessment after you have visited the customers property and entered your notes and proposal into the customers project page. For all other work proposed, we operate on a 50/50 split. Meaning that we pay the first 50% of your invoice to get started and the remaining 50% once you have completed it. We do collect 100% of material and equipment cost up front so that you can secure everything needed for the project.
