Steps to work with a client on RoomPlay:
Login to your Dashboard to view all your Bookings and pen the latest Client Project.
  1. Click "START" button on the Booking page
  2. Collaborate: You can email your client from the platform. It is best to use the "contact me" feature on client's profile instead of communicating through Booking page .
  3. When you're ready to submit the design, shopping list & other requested deliverables, click "DELIVER" button and attach the deliverables (prefer pdf, jpg, zip files)
  4. Please ask the client to login and click "ACCEPT" on the Booking page. They can leave you a Review here.
  5. Payment will be sent after the project is completed.

Our goal is to ensure our Designers’ & clients’ privacy is maintained. For that – we have a “Contact me” feature on each user’s profile.

  • Direct Messaging: If a client wishes to contact you before placing the order, they can use “Contact me” from RoomPlays and you will receive an email notifying you. You can view all your direct DMs in your Messages
  • After Booking: Depending on your & the client’s preference, you can email/call directly, however we recommend initial reach-out and final delivery communication be handled from within the “Order page”. You can send, receive & track all communication related to that Booking from the Order Page.

RoomPlays has a wide variety of designers, each pricing their services based on value they provide. Our designers operate Individually & Independently and hence recommend that you price competitively, but also be true to what is worthy of your time and expertise.

Base Service: The Base service should be within the range and must include at minimum 1 E-Design (and preferably Shopping list of sourced products).

Add-ons: We recommend to customize your listing with Add-ons for anything beyond the Base service such as Paint suggestions, Floor Plan, 3D Rendering, Extra Revisions, Extra Rooms etc

Custom Orders: When a client places a custom order, you can accept, decline or negotiate with a counter offer - you are free to specify your new price here. If the client accepts, they will be redirected to complete the payment and you will receive confirmation once the booking has been placed.

In order to increase visibility, we recommend a few things :
  1. Complete Portfolio: Firstly to create a complete portfolio so clients see that you offer a range of services for various categories.
  2. Featured Designer Badge: The "Featured Designer" badge enables you to show up on our Home Page and top of all Search categories, and preferred on Style Quiz matches. This is available to our most Active Designers. Please contact us directly to learn about how to earn the badge.

We  encourage you to use the tools and software you are most comfortable with.

Every Designer has their own Dashboard. Once you login, click on your Profile icon (top right) and select Dashboard. You can track and manage all your client projects, earnings, communication and Design services from here

Most Designers include a comprehensive Shopping list with links (aligning with client’s budget needs and preferred stores). The client takes responsibility for shopping & setup.

However, if you would like to offer in-person installation for local clients, you can add it as an add-on to your services.

We understand sometimes it can take longer than expected to turnaround an order. We recommend you inform the client well in advance about the timeline and set expectations accordingly. RoomPlays will not limit communication in any way.

There are several categories you can submit for. If you have an additional category, it can be added to the “Everything Else” bucket. Use “Tags” to make your design searchable. You are free to charge the services the way you feel best describes value. We recommend you price competitively, but also be respectful of your time and effort.

Clients coming to RoomPlays need to make the payment at the time of Booking. The platform only delivers a client booking to you if they have paid in full for the services they are requesting.

Clients may occasionally message you to vet your services before booking.

You can login to your Dashboard and pause any or all of your Designer Services with 1 click! When you’re ready, simply resume them.

We do not yet offer Affiliate links through RoomPlays but will be shortly. Until then, you can use your own Affiliate Links. Based on your client’s preference of stores, create your shopping list with rewardStyle, Rakuten or other Affiliate links to Amazon, Target, CB2, Pottery Barn, Walmart, West Elm, Houzz, Wayfair etc to earn direct commissions. However, the client is not bound to shop through your links

  • When we choose to promote a designer, in addition to the images they have already submitted to the RoomPlays website, we may occasionally use publicly available images from their social media channels such as instagram to redirect traffic to their RoomPlays services.
  • When we choose to promote a designer, we may invite them to a Podcast or Instagram Live session. We use footage from the session along with any other visuals shared with us to create promotional content for RoomPlays and redirecting traffic to that designer’s services on RoomPlays.
