Paying for Sourcing as a Service

Once you're happy with the calibrated list of profiles, we'd like to get to work on your full list of passive candidates. We require upfront payment before we'll begin working on the full list. When purchasing a Sourcing list, you have 2 different options:

1. Purchase one list
2. Purchase a bundle of "credits" that you can spend on future Sourcing lists. 

Instructions on how to purchase credits are found below. This table will help you compare the 2 options:

One List (One Sourcing Credit) Bundles (multiple credits for multiple lists)
$200 USD flat fee
Save up to 20% off retail when buying a bundle
Purchase at the time that you need it Pre-purchase a bundle of full list sourcing projects and use at your convenience
Perfect if you only plan to source for one role Perfect if you have 3 or more roles to source in the next 12 months

Option 1: Buying just 1 list

Q: What does 1 credit equate to?
A: 1 sourcing credit gets you 1 full sourced list of 50 passive candidates. 

Q: Why are the costs in your screenshots different than hte prices listed?
A: SaaS lists used to have 100 candidates, and cost $400 USD for recruiters, or $500 USD for clients. We found that lists of 50 candidates, priced at $200 USD (recruiters)/$250 USD (clients) was a better fit for our audience.

Q: Do my credits expire?
A: Yes. All credits must be used within 12 months of purchase

Q: I'm going to need a lot more than 3 lists in the next few months. Can I get a better deal?? 
A: Yes. We offer a custom retained/subscription sourcing packages as well. If you'd like to discuss this, send us a note at

Q: Does the cost or currency change depending on my location?
A: No. Currently all prices listed are in USD. We are planning to offer local currency options in the future.

Q: Can I have my client pay for the cost of sourcing when they pay my invoice after a few weeks?
A: No, all sourcing lists must be billed up front. However, you can add that as an "out of pocket expense" on your client billings, to charge them for the cost of the sourcing. (Note: for clients, we promote SaaS at a cost of $250 USD per list. If you're buying bundles, you give yourself the opportunity to make a further margin.)

Q: I need the invoice for this purchase. Where can I get it? What does it look like?
A: Your invoice can be downloaded on your Purchase History page (See step 7 above). Below is a sample invoice for a Single project


We also offer Retained/Subscription services. If you wish to know more, contact for details. We'll have a call to chat about what you need and how we can help.
