HandyTradie; The indigenous app transforming online provision service in Ghana
HandyTradie started operations in 2020 with a focus on Revolutionizing Service Delivery in Africa while maintaining strong positive local cultural values. We currently service customers in Accra, Tema, and its environs with a plan to expand to other regions in Ghana and across the continent.

HandyTradie has revolutionised the way we seek and provide services in Ghana. You can contact a mechanic, assign a task, pay for the service anywhere – anytime
How does the platform work?
The HandyTradie App can be downloaded from Google Playstore or Apple Appstore. After downloading, one needs to sign up by giving his or her personal details including residential address and national ID. (This is to eradicate fraud and other nefarious activities thus, protecting both the client and the service provider. We protect the privacy of the individual and personal data by regulating the processing of personal information in line with the Data Protection Act, 2012 (Act 843).
Posting a task
This will be followed by the selection of the option to either make money (service provider) or post a task (as a client) or both. The app also recommends that one enables notifications for his or her areas of interest.
After successfully signing onto the App, you are ready to post a task. On the App Dashboard CLICK on the corresponding tile to create the job. Give details, including pictures or any relevant information (where applicable), to give a clear idea of the job requirements, due date, and budget.
Any tradesperson or service provider interested in the job will then put in a bid and provide any information or explanations for his or her particular quote. Once both client and tradie agree on a price, the client goes ahead to assign the task to the selected tradie.
In assigning the task, the client is taken to his or her mobile money platform to complete the transaction. The agreed sum is deducted and held in an online payment platform for HandyTradie. The tradie then gets a notification that the job has been assigned to them. He/she then accepts.
