Terms and Conditions

Introduction:

These terms and conditions apply to the use of the MegaLeads service, which specializes in lead generation for niche industries.

Mission Statement

  • We are here to connect homeowners with genuine tradespeople and service professionals committed to completing their projects successfully.

Lead Distribution

  • All leads are sent via WhatsApp.
  • Leads that match your profile will be automatically sent to you, and 1 credit will be deducted.
  • You cannot decline a lead if it matches your profile.
  • Leads are exclusively sent out to one independent service provider at a time.

Credits and Payments

  • 1 lead is equal to one service provided.
  • If there are multiple services within a lead, more than 1 credit will be charged.
  • We only sell pre-paid credits.
  • Credits will only be loaded once funds have been reflected in our account.
  • Credits do not expire.

Acceptance of Leads

  • For leads that require multiple services (e.g., a building renovation), you will be asked to accept or decline the lead.
  • Only when the lead is accepted with a “YES” will the client’s contact details be sent to you, and your credits will be deducted accordingly.
  • Ensure you read the lead carefully before accepting it.
  • An independent service provider must have enough credits before accepting and receiving a lead.

Lead Nature and Limitations

  • The leads are potential clients, not guaranteed jobs.
  • We cannot “Guarantee” that the lead will become a “Guaranteed Job”.
  • We cannot close the deal for you, nor do we know if your prices are market-related or how you conduct your business.
  • If the service or product required is for the same day or in 3 months, it is still regarded as a lead.
  • If a client is merely comparing pricing or asks for a quote, it is still regarded as a lead.
  • Keep in mind that you cannot get a job without giving a quote.

Campaign Pauses and Credit Forfeiture

  • Lead campaigns can be paused for a maximum of 14 days.
  • If the pause period is longer than 2 months, it will need to be approved by management first.
  • Should you exceed your pause period, any remaining credits will be forfeited.

Pricing and Lead Volume

  • Some categories are more expensive than others.
  • The daily volume of leads varies depending on the industry.

Lead Management

  • If a customer contacts the call centre and needs a service, the lead is forwarded to the relevant independent service provider.
  • If by chance it is an existing client of yours, this is still regarded as a lead.
  • If you are currently running a marketing campaign and receive the same lead, we do not re-credit for the lead, as clients do shop around.
  • However, this means there is a greater chance you will close the deal.
  • Slots left with no credits for 60 days will be placed on the waiting list. From there, you will need to reapply for available slots.
  • If your company closes down, you may transfer your leads to another company of your choice, provided they have been verified and approved.
  • If you start services in a new area or province, we cannot refund you, and we cannot transfer the leads.
  • In case of injury or disability, we can pause your campaign or transfer your leads to another company of your choice.

Responsibilities and Limitations

  • We do not get involved in customer-related issues unless MegaLeads stands to lose as a result of the service provider’s actions.
  • All customer issues must be directly resolved between you and your client.
  • We are not responsible for any outstanding payments from your clients.
  • We do not hold any warranties or guarantees of any of the products or services that your company offers your clients.
  • It’s the client’s choice to use your services or not.
  • We cannot quote or close your deal for you.

Conduct and Compliance

  • Bribing or offering an incentive to MegaLeads staff for better leads will result in your package being terminated, and the balance of credits, if any, will be forfeited.
  • MegaLeads staff that accept bribes or incentives shall have their jobs terminated due to theft.
  • All theft shall be prosecuted by the South African Police Service.
  • No conversations of a personal nature may be held with any of MegaLeads’ staff.
  • We do not supply leads to other lead generation companies.
  • Failing to disclose that you are a lead generation company will result in your package being terminated and forfeit your credits.
  • If you want to change your Telephone Number, Area, or Service, please send us an email from the registered account with your Business Registration documents, ID/Passport, as well as a Photo of yourself holding your ID/Passport.

Indemnification

  • We indemnify ourselves against all loss and damages or misconduct from all customer-related issues.

General Notice

  • PLEASE NOTE: Terms and conditions are subject to change at any time.
  • If you don’t like the changes, you should stop using the service right away.
  • Should your client the “lead” request your company details from us, they shall be provided.
  • If you keep using the service after the changes are posted, it means you accept the new terms.

Account Management

  • MegaLeads holds the right to vet (FICA) our independent service providers once a year.
  • MegaLeads holds the right to terminate your account at any time if standards are not met.

Lead Usage

  • Leads received may not be shared amongst fellow independent service providers, friends or family members.

Refunds and Credits

  • In case of death, your family may be credited with the balance of the leads in their account upon providing a death certificate.
  • If we build a new campaign and you are unhappy for whatever reason, there will be no refunds, as we pay for our advertising upfront.
  • Please provide a certified bank confirmation letter of the account details for a refund.
  • The account details must match the Company Registration Documents and ID.
  • Refunds may take up to 72 hours to reflect.

Re-Credit Policy Guideline

  • The lead is not for your industry.
  • The lead is not for your area.
  • Example: East Rand Lead was sent to a West Rand independent service provider.
  • If this happens you need to let us know within 20 minutes so that we may re-credit you.
  • If you fail to contact us within 20 minutes after making contact with the client we will unfortunately not be able to re-credit you.
  • If a lead was sent and your campaign is on pause you need to report it to customer care immediately.
