So ive attempted to hire 4 experts 2 of them didnt know what content ids were (they were advertising the ability to set up a fb pixel) 1 of them im pretty sure tried to scam me and the last one is on day 3 of pixel setup for an 8 item store.
I guess what id really like to know is, is there somewhere other than shopify i can hire someone to do basic shopify tasks?
As I understand it, Upwork has a large market for Shopify work.
I would say that one way of vetting is to provide a small initial task as a test of sorts, but judging by your comment about the pixel implementation even that doesn't seem possible. For such small tasks, I do think it's reasonable to pay after completion though. That may help avoid so-called 'no-shows'.
