Q: I just finished teaching a class. Will I receive payment straightaway?
A: In Singapore, payment will be deposited into your Sifu wallet 24 hours after the class ends. You will then be able to withdraw this amount from your Sifu wallet. You should receive your payment within two days after the withdrawal.
In Malaysia, payment will be deposited into your bank account on the first of every month (provided that you withdraw by the 21st of every month). For example, withdrawing from your account on 5th Oct 2017, will result in your payment deposited into your bank account on 1st Nov 2017.
Q: How do I receive payment?
A: In Singapore, Sifu-Sifu uses Stripe to provide a secure platform for easy payments—you never deal with the hassle of late fees and messy payments.
You will need to a Stripe account via the app to receive payments for your lessons. Just go to "Wallet" function, and click the top right "Stripe" button.
In Malaysia, you will have to provide your bank account details. Just go to "Wallet" function, and click the top right "Bank" button.
Q: Does Sifu-Sifu charge a service fee?
A: Sifu-Sifu charges a 10% service fee on each reservation, but listing your lessons on Sifu-Sifu is free. This helps us to continue to provide a reliable and fuss-free platform for instructors like you.
Q: Is there a minimum fee I can charge for my lessons?
A: You must charge a minimum of SGD$10 or MYR10 for a single class in order for your transaction to be processed.
Q: How much should I charge?
A: This is entirely up to you, but additional payment gateway charges will be reflected to students at a higher price. For example, if you set the standard price at $30, you will earn SGD 27 after Sifu’s 10% service fee. Lesson prices will be reflected to students as SGD 33 to include payment gateway charges.
