Do I have to pay for Kalido?

Kalido is free for download and always will be. We believe in entrepreneurship and encouraging meaningful connections, so we want as many people to make those connections as possible. You can also create your own private networks for free. However, we do charge enterprises and other organizations to own and manage private networks of greater than 100 people.

Can I pay someone for a skill or service on Kalido?

At the moment, youʼll both need to agree on payment outside of the app.

If I transact with someone on Kalido, can Kalido ensure Iʼll get paid?

Sadly not. Thatʼs why we try to match you with someone you already have a trust-based connection with (common contacts, networks etc.), so youʼre less likely to meet up with someone who gives you trouble with payments. Please report unscrupulous users to us at

What if I want to cancel work I’ve asked someone to do, but the service provider has already put work in?

The legal answer is: Youʼll have agreed to the terms of your arrangement when the work started, and any disputes will be governed by the laws of your country, or the international laws of contract and sale. The ‘people’ answer is: Talk to your service provider, and you will probably be able to come to some sort of agreement that youʼll both be ok with.

How exactly does Kalido make money?

Organizations who own private networks on Kalido with more than 100 members pay us a subscription fee. This also gives them access to additional tools that help them more easily manage large networks, and derive insights from those networks.  If you’d like to be one of those organizations, just drop us a note at In the future, we may also introduce premium services for individuals. And if you’ve got ideas for premium services you’d like to see, send an email to
