What can be sold as a Service?

A service is essentially a project. Examples may be as simple as touching up a logo, creating custom made postcards or providing unique gift ideas. A service may be also as complex as building a website, editing a video or developing a mobile phone application.

Just about anything can be provided as a service!

Purchasing a Service

Once you have purchased a service through Freemarket, a project will be created between you and the service provider.

You will be regarded as the employer of the project and the freelancer provides their service to complete it.

You can view and manage the project through the �Project Table� at the bottom of your Dashboard, highlighted by the �Freemarket Services� icon.


The service charged to you will be deposited as a milestone payment for you to release once the service has been successfully delivered by the freelancer.

You may receive an email by the freelancer, asking to clarify any necessary details before they can accept work. Ensure you are clear on the details for the project, so that there are no misunderstandings.

Once the service has been completed and your project has been received, you may release the milestone payment to the freelancer. This can be done via the �Project Table� on the Dashboard by selecting the �Release Milestone� option on the Action menu.

Once the freelancer has decided to accept, you will be notified that work has commenced via email and through the Dashboard�s newsfeed.

Leaving Feedback

Once payment has been finalised, both the employer and service provider must leave feedback and comments to rate each other�s performance on the project. Leaving feedback is highly recommended as it will help to improve your status and trust with other users on Freelancer.com for future projects.

Disputes

In the event that a service project is not provided to the satisfaction of either the buyer or service provider - either party may request to file a dispute to help negotiate the amount to be paid for work conducted. Disputes can sometimes be the result of simple misunderstandings and clear communication can resolve most issues.
