How do I hire a Freelancer directly for my project?
You can prepay your project using the Prepaid project feature located at the top of your project view page when considering bids.
How does Freelancer.com work for Employers?
You can hide all bids for a one time fee of $9.00 USD. Sealed Bidding may lead to lower bids for your project!
Please see our detailed list of Fees & Charges
Featured Projects incur a one time fee of $29.00 USD. Featured Projects attract more, higher quality bids. They appear prominently on the home page.
This type of project is for hiring a full time or commission-based position (e.g. Sales) and you will save money if you have ongoing work. Fees are only charged on payments if the project value exceeds $5000 USD.
Full Time projects cost $199.00 USD, payable by the Employer and are displayed in the job listings with a label.
Prepaid projects give additional confidence to freelancers when considering your project. By paying an upfront deposit, your project will receive higher engagement from freelancers, provide you with more bids and receive a faster response to start work.
Private hides project details from search engines and users that are not logged in for $19.00 USD. This feature is recommended for projects where confidentiality is a must.
Our agent will clarify the project with you if necessary and will recommend a bidder based on your project requirements and the online bidder profile. The agent may also invite more freelancers to bid. Conditions apply
For Employers who value privacy of their project details, an NDA Project is a great way to list your project and discuss project requirements with Freelancers.
Freelancers must agree to a Non-Disclosure agreement (NDA) before placing a bid on your project. Freelancer.com provides a default NDA though we recommend you should always get legal advice on important documents like this. Otherwise, you may upload your own NDA which Freelancers will sign and agree to instead.
Once the Freelancer has digitally signed and agreed to the NDA, they agree to keep details discussed through private messages and files confidential.
The NDA project option must be selected during the project posting process; it cannot be applied once the project is live.
Note: NDA projects will still display your project's description and project clarification board comments publicly.
Urgent projects skip the admin queue and are listed immediately, receiving a faster response from Freelancers to help get your project started within 24 hours!
You can mark your project as Urgent for $9.00 USD. Your project will be listed for bidding for 24 hours and will also be displayed in the Ending Soon table
