ijobwork Fees and Charges

For Employers

Projects

Freelancer is free to sign up, post a project, receive bids from freelancers, review the freelancer's portfolio and discuss the project requirements. If you choose to award the project, and the freelancer accepts, we charge you a small project fee relative to the value of the selected bid, as an introduction fee (as detailed in the table below).

The cost and how this fee is charged depends on the type of project and membership plan

Membership Plan Employer Project Fee
Fixed Price Projects Hourly Projects
Free 3% or $3.00 USD, whichever is greater 3%
Intro 3% or $3.00 USD, whichever is greater 3%
Basic 3% or $3.00 USD, whichever is greater 3%
Plus 3% or $3.00 USD, whichever is greater 3%
Standard 0% 0%
Premium 0% 0%

For fixed price projects, the fee is levied at the time a project that has been awarded by you has been accepted by each freelancer you award. If you subsequently pay the freelancer more than the original bid amount we will also charge the project fee on any overage payments.

For hourly projects, the fee is levied on each payment as it is made to the freelancer.

You may cancel the project from your dashboard at any time for up to seven (7) days after the project has been accepted for a full refund of your fee.

Optional project upgrades may be purchased.

Contests

At the time of posting a contest, employers must provide funds equivalent to the total contest prize. We have a Money Back Guarantee for this prize money.

The Money Back Guarantee entitles you to get your money back for up to 30 days from contest closing if you are not happy with the submitted entries. You can get refunded simply by contacting support.

Note that refunds are not available on 'Guaranteed contests', and this refund does not include any upgrades that you may have selected for the contest. If you've already selected an entry as the winner and completed the contest handover, which has released the prize money to them, you are not eligible for a refund.

There is no contest fee for posting and awarding the contest for employers.

Each additional awarded entry will also require payment of the prize for that entry.

Optional contest upgrades may be purchased.

Services

At the time of ordering a service, employers must provide funds equivalent to the total service price. The payment is protected by the Freelancer Milestone Payment System. Only release the payment once you are 100% happy with the work that has been delivered.

For Freelancers

Freelancer is free to sign up, create a profile, select skills of projects you are interested in, upload a portfolio, receive project notifications, discuss project details with the employer, bid on projects (free members receive initially 8 bids per month) and enter contests.

Optional bid upgrades may be purchased to promote a bid.
