How does Superpeer work? Let’s say that you are watching a video tutorial and you want to schedule time with the person in the video to ask follow-up questions, you can do that with Superpeer. The host of the tutorial video can decide how much to charge for a one-on-one video call. And Superpeer handles the appointments and the payments in exchange for 15% of the transaction. Superpeer co-founder and CEO Devrim Yasar (also known as the co-founder of Koding) told TechCrunch that the company also created a user rating system and a refund system if the terms of service has been violated. These methods could help prevent dissatisfaction with the experience for either party. The video calls are stored for 48 hours in order to review any potential conflicts.
