Now, let’s talk about how to access your income on the platform and the commission rates for counselors!
NOTE: You can only see this section in your profile if you are verified.
As a counselor on Qalam, you will take home 80% of your meeting fees. Let’s say your hourly rate is PKR 10,000 & you have a meeting of 30 minutes.
The meeting fee would be PKR 5000, of which Qalam would receive only PKR 1000. The rest of the 4000 will be with us until your meeting is completed & the withdrawal conditions are fulfilled.
Once that happens, you are free to issue a withdrawal request.
- Students must mark the meeting as complete to transfer funds to the counselor’s name.
- Total income at the moment of withdrawal must be greater than PKR 5000.
- Withdrawal requests must be made using a Pakistani source (SadaPay, EasyPaisa) or bank account.
All withdrawals fulfilling the conditions will be fulfilled within 4 business days.
Issuing a withdrawal request
To check if your funds are enough for a withdrawal, you can head over to the “My earnings” tab, which can be found in Dashboard > Transactions & invoices > My earnings.
Once there, you should be able to see what your current income on the site is & how much is available in your account.
If it surpasses PKR 5000 in available funds, you can issue a request. But before this, you must add a payout method.
Ideally, this should be a Pakistani bank account that we can directly deposit your earnings into. To add the information, click the “Add details” button.
If you are unable to find any information for your particular bank account, you are free to leave it blank. However, you must fill out the following for transfer to be possible:
- Bank account title
- Bank account number
- Bank name
- Bank IBAN
In case you are using digital wallets such as EasyPaisa or SadaPay (or otherwise), please add your account title, account number & wallet name (ESSENTIALS) in the related fields. As for the fields that you do not have available, just write 0 or N/A & save (but make sure to mention your Wallet Name!)
Saving bank information
Once you have saved the information, it will still show the “Add details” button. However, upon clicking it, you will be able to see the information which you entered.
This is what we will be using to transfer you the earnings!
