    I've been approached by some "companies" that want 100 plus pictures of a simple grass cut.... I don't get how you can even do that and it's like you said Patriot, they have all these requirements as a way to trip you up so that you don't get paid, but you can bet you behind they are still billing the mortgagee. I snap 20 photos of each grass cut and can upload them at a rate of about 2 properties a minute when I get back to the office.

    The company is referenced in the opening post. Y'all are having a fairly different conversation than what the OP asked about. He's asking about a company that's along the lines of a RedBeacon, ThumbTack, or Angie's List, albeit one where the homeowner pays for the service directly to the lead generator and then the lead generator sources the contractor and rations out a share of the money.

    (I'm not big on dropping links to unknown companies. The SEO value of this site, and Google's ultra-rapid indexing of it, dissuade me from giving that kind of credibility to a company I known very little about.)

    What is their pay rate to you versus what you would normally charge for the same property?

    Okay I checked out the company in question. Not something I'd do unless the pay was better than I could get going direct to the customer as now you have to deal with home owner and this company.

    I'm stunned by that high of a cut (like, shocked). I don't see anything wrong in giving it a shot. Is it a one-time mow or did the client go with recurring service? Only real risk is a slow/no pay, especially if a recurring service and you've got a couple/few mows on the line.
