iFreelancer is connects freelancers with those looking to outsource some help.
The freelancer pays a monthly fee ($6-$12/mo) and the client pays the contractor directly.
iFreelancer does not mediate in any way and the agreement is between you and the freelancer.
So, basically a dating site. You need to see who’s a good fit and determine their trustworthiness and determine your risk factor.
THE GOOD /
THE BAD /
THE BOTTOMLINE /
Matching freelancers to clients.
There is a skill rating for each freelancer that the freelancer fills out.
After the job is complete the client can write a review and rate the freelancer.
While clients can post a project in any category, as of this review we saw very little project activity on the site.
Kinda like walking into an empty restaurant, makes you wonder why no one’s eating there.
The freelance market is rife with lackluster performers and downright scammers.
Not being able to protect yourself in this market is a huge deal and, like any dating site, buyer beware.
