What if we get a project or hire through Commerce Hero that we already knew beforehand? Do we still have to pay?
We'll work out the details on this, but the goal is to be fair. If you already had a relationship with them beforehand, in theory you can show some kind of email trail and that should be good enough.
It will be mostly on the honor system initially, but we'll make it more sophisticated as we scale.
Also we'll be time-stamping profile views, so if you start working with someone and we have profile views tracked for them and you don't have an email history showing you had a pre-existing relationship, that wouldn't be very nice of you :)
