FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Getting the CrowdNet app
Where can I get the app?
The CrowdNet app will be available on both the Google Play store and the Apple App Store. We’re currently making tweaks in the app – but if you’d like to know once it’s ready, please sign up for our Newsletter!
Becoming a CrowdNet Seller
How do I become a seller?
We have a separate app for sellers called “CrowdNet Seller”. To become a seller, all you need is to download the app through the Google Play store or Apple App Store, and register. The CrowdNet Seller app will provide you simple step-by-step instructions on how to set-up your account.
Important note: To be able to sell your Internet, you need to have a stable mobile signal. We highly recommend that you use your unused mobile data for re-selling your Internet. Do note that you are responsible for any additional charges incurred outside your mobile data plan.
How do I know that the CrowdNet Seller is trustworthy?
We want to make sure that all of our CrowdNet Sellers are trustworthy, so we employ a rating system for all of our partners. Customers are encouraged to provide ratings and comments so we can reward or manage our partners better. In the event that our CrowdNet Sellers fall below our quality standards, we instantly review their accounts for improvement (or even suspension).
Where can I find CrowdNet Sellers?
In our app, we have a feature that allows you to find all the CrowdNet Sellers in your location.
Paying for your WiFi connection
How is payment done between the buyer and seller?
Transactions via the CrowdNet app is all done via SMS. The CrowdNet app confirms with you the payment amount and number of minutes before any transaction starts. Once you confirm and accept the terms, your mobile prepaid or postpaid credits automatically gets deducted and transferred to the CrowdNet Seller’s account.
Managing your WiFi connection
What if the WiFi disconnects before the time runs out?
It is our aim to provide all our customers with stable, reliable Internet wherever you are. In the unlikely event that the WiFi connection becomes disconnected, the app will automatically send a notification to our system. You will receive a partial refund (depending on the package you purchased) to your account while the CrowdNet Seller will instantly receive a low rating for their service.
What if I want to disconnect before the time runs out?
Customers are allowed to disconnect their connection anytime they want (CrowdNet Sellers, however, are not allowed to disconnect once the connection period starts). Do note, however, that once you disconnect during your allotted time period, you will not be able to reconnect again. All remaining minutes will be forfeited and you will have to start a new transaction after.
Where will the timer appear and how will we know when the time is up?
Once you confirm your package and finish payment, the CrowdNet app will automatically create a timer widget at the top part of your smartphone. During the final minute before your time runs out, the app will send you a notification to inform you of the time.
