First of all let me make it clear that I do not wish to offend the honest freelancers with my project description. I have been messed around significant by various freelancers who send fake portfolios and think I am too stupid to scroll down to the bottom of those websites and check who the real developers were.
I am sick and tired of being messed around by freelancers who bid but then lack the necessary skills to complete my project or who are too otherwise occupied to finish my projects within the agreed time-frame. Dishonesty and lies is not how i do business.
So, to accompany my project I have a number of rules. If you don't agree to them then don't bid. Simple!
1) Of the 5 projects (3 wordpress custom themes, 2 Shopfiy custom themes) the winning freelancer MUST complete and have the work verified as acceptable. Then the details and milestone payments for the other projects will be sent.
2) The winning bidder MUST have a google talk account and agree a time at which contact can be made on any given day. Communication is key to successful business and I wish to communicate with my freelancer to ensure both parties are always happy.
3) The freelancer MUST be committed to work within given deadlines. If you have a problem with this, please do NOT bid. I have wasted enough time with freelancers who continuously request more time and sometimes don't even complete projects and loose contact.
