Pay to work for free
Freelancer.com has literally no way of ensuring Freelancers get paid and keep everything to agreements. Fees are very high on small jobs (up to 40%) and lower on bigger jobs than on other platforms. But you’re essentially paying to make contact and for that the fees are way too high. There’s no review system so it’s hard to say who which buyers are trustworthy. Don’t expect anything more than listings. You’ll do better pitching offline clients solo on a handshake than on Freelancer.com as offline clients have reputation to consider. You’d literally have to contract with your client externally if you choose to work here. And asking for payment or deposits upfront is prohibited on their platform which is a huge red light for any Freelancer who’s done work for some time. Customers always look for excuses to not pay. Just work elsewhere you’ll be happier and better paid. Consider that many customers on this platform are eager to post their work because they get their work done without paying. NOT WORTH IT! Just RUN away!
All seemed illegitimate
I used this app once or twice, you place bids which is cool but the work seems sketchy and not the best. I had someone tell me the work I was doing was basically to cover up something. I would not recommend it, it seems like it is a spot for people who want to get work done cheaply!
