Pricing, Payment Process, and Turnaround Time

What are your offshore staffing schemes?

We employ three offshore staffing schemes: full time, part time, and project-based. You may decide on the most appropriate scheme that will work best in addressing your business needs.

Can I talk to your specialists for further instructions?
Yes, you can call your assigned specialist(s) to give further instructions and specifications. However, we highly suggest that you leave your message via email instead so they can get back to you anytime during the project execution.
How much do you charge for each service?

Our rates vary per project type. Thus, we encourage that you “request for a quote” first to make sure you get the best price for the exact product or service that you need. Upon inquiry, one of our customer service reps will discuss to you the specifics of your possible order and its corresponding rate.

How long does it usually take until I receive the output?
Turnaround time varies per project and service type. We will specify the turnaround time and deadline on the Project Agreement.
How can I pay you?
We accept payments via PayPal and wire transfer. For clients based in the Philippines, we also accept payments through bank deposits.
How much can I save by having an offshore team at Outsource-Philippines? How much do you charge for each service or team?

You can save as much 70% of the labor cost compared to having an in-house staff in your location, without the hassle of supervising them so you can focus on growing your business. Our charging/rate depends on the following:

  • Skills or specialization and years of experience of the VAs that you need
  • Volume of project or number of staff—we give special rates for bigger projects or larger team
  • Tools, apps, or any other technology-based requirements that you require the VAs to use
What’s the typical lead time?
Once we both agreed on the terms and conditions of the contract and the security deposit has been settled, hiring and client onboarding will take 1 to 4 weeks, depending on the qualifications of your offshore team.
