After checkout, ShopsMat retains the amount you paid, and notify the seller about your payment, and the seller then comes to perform the service before the money is released to him or her.

 

WHAT DO I HAVE TO AFTER SELLER PERFORM SERVICE

 

You have to mark the service as completed by using the Service completed link under the My Orders which is located in the booker dropdown menu and the user profile.
