Do not bid if you have Zero or Negative Feedback
I am part of a group that has used GetAFreelancer programmers many times before. I know the GetAFreelancer process well, and will not Pay early, or up front.
I will, if required, escrow the entire amount, but you will not be paid if you do not finish the project.
2/3rds of a project does not mean 2/3rds pay, it means Zero.
This project must be coded in PHP, Database in MySql
Until you have a functional model, you will be required to work on your own server. When the software is ready for testing, you will upload to my server and my programmers will install the Database, form page and Admin page etc.
Please see attached file for complete description and please PM me if you have any questions. It is important you do not bid without understanding the project completely. We have allowed 7 days for bidding so read and understand what we are asking for.
If people identify things I have missed in the attached file, I will amend the file and notify you so you can re-bid.
Do not bid if you do not intend on doing this job, I promise I will not waste your time, so please do not waste mine.
Any software developed under this contract shall not be reproduced and will be owned by me.
I was asked how a person can be guaranteed of payment? Here is the answer
I) I will put money in Escrow
2) You work on your server, until the project works
3) link me to your server so I can see the results.
4)Have me send you a Word Document saying that I agree you have met the endpoint of the job after I see the functional software on your server. I will protect myself by stating that a final funtional copy must be uploaded to my IP.
5) I will give you IP and Password for my server. You upload we test, if there are no problems then you will be paid. I have two full time programmers on staff.
6)If minor warranty issues, then you will be paid, and I will then have to trust you.
6)If I am dumb enough not to pay you, then you have the word document to show GAF and IP of my server, to release the escrow.
I hope that satisfies any fears.
I think you are more than protected.
