Online marketplace is nothing without a proper feedback/rating system. That is precisely why we’ve paid special attention in implementing robust, yet simple to use user rating and reputation system. Overall user reputation is calculated based on the average feedback (1-5 star ratings) that a single user receives across all of his service offers. User reputation is then taken into account as a part of the criteria (logic) for automatically upgrading/downgrading user levels.
