Hi,

Digi-HD is a German electronics retailer www.digi-hd.com. I am part of their payments processing team, for the Australian orders that are paid by bank transfer. It is not very complicated actually. We are processing only the orders made by customers from Australia and NZ who are making their payments by local bank wire. First I am notified when they receive a new order (the amount and date of the payment, customer name, etc). and then the customer makes the payment to my account. After I receive the payment, I have to confirm the receipt so Digi-HD can proceed to shipping. I keep 7.5% of the amount received (my commission) and then I send the amount due to Digi-HD. After that I inform them that the payment has been processed successfully. Of course, you will keep the entire commission for the orders that you will process. We only handle the processing of the payments. The orders are processed by Digi-HD directly, they handle the advertising, shipping, technical support, etc.

This is just a brief description of the job, so you can decide if you would be capable of doing it. There are two positions available, so if you think you can handle it I can put you in touch with Peter Schneider - the manager, for more details.

Chris


Dear Madam,

Our partner in Australia has submited a request to forward you the terms and conditions for the available position. At the moment we are working with three processors in Australia, and we will extend our processing team with two new members by the end of 2011.

At the beginning, we will assign you an average of three orders weekly, for processing. We will send you notification emails before receiving a payment. After each payment is received you will send us a confirmation by email with the sender's name, and exact amount received thus we can validate the order. You will retain your income directly from the payments received and then send us the amount due.

Your income will be in between 5.5% and 7.5% of the total amounts received and processed, depending on your availability schedule and the processing duration - (5.5% for next day processing and 7.5% for same day processing)

We have a separate department for customer assistance and support, therefore we do not require that you have special technical training.

If you consider that you can handle the job requirements in a timely manner, let me know a little about yourself (Name, Address, Phone number, Age, Work Experience).

Respectfully,
Herr Peter Schneider

Hi, I was wondering if you are still interested in working for Digi-HD? It's not a problem if you don't want to, just let me know as I have promised Peter that I will recommend a few people by next week. I would like to know eitherway, so I can ask somebody else if you are not interested..

Chris
