Users are in control of the price they want to pay for any service. Prices come directly from the Contractors.

Also, Contractors will be required to pay a membership or subscription fee to maintain their Vedoc accounts and be able to advertise their services.

For such payments, you must have a valid credit card with us to pay all incurred and recurring charges. Vedoc will charge the credit card account that you authorize (“Authorized Card”) and will keep charging the Authorized Card (or any replacement card) until:
(a) your Authorized Card is rejected, and you don't provide a replacement, within 14 days; or
(b) you cancel your subscription for such features at least 24 hours before your scheduled payment date.
To update your Authorized Card, you may contact us. After any update, you authorize us to continue charging your Authorized Card.
