Sometimes asking for help falls on deaf ears. Until, of course, you make it known that you’re willing to pay for said help. Enter new PayPal-sponsored site, Do Stuff for Money.
Whether you’re dead serious or just having some fun, fill out the information requested—your name, your friend’s name, dollar amount, offer, and friend’s email address—and your offer is on its way (and possibly displayed on the site). Upon receipt of the request, your friend can either choose to accept or decline the offer. Either way, you’re notified by PayPal of your “contractors” reply, and then it’s up to you to follow through and, once the job’s done, send payment through PayPal, of course.
Have any tips on how to get friends or family to help out when they really don’t want to (maybe without paying them)? Let’s hear it in the comments below.
