What to be aware of

Freelancer Pricing

You can sign up, post a project, receive bids from freelancers, review the freelancer's portfolio, and discuss the project requirements for free. If you choose to award the project, and the freelancer accepts, the platform charges a project fee relative to the value of the selected bid, as an introduction fee. The cost and how this fee is charged depends on the type of project.

  • For fixed-price projects, a fee of 3% or $3.00 (whichever is greater) is levied at the time a project that has been awarded by you has been accepted by each freelancer you award. 
  • For hourly projects, a fee of 3% is levied on each payment that you make to the freelancer.
