Terrible, terrible place!!
Freelance Designer (Current Employee) –  Not applicableDecember 13, 2018
I don't want to bother the readers with all the details, but basically, as soon as you ACCEPT the project, you're immediately charged a fee of 10% of the project bid amount, regardless of whether the employer even verified their payment method!

The worst consequence of that is the fact that if something happens with the project, and you and your client mutually agree to Cancel it, you can do it, however, the initial project fee the site took will NOT BE REFUNDED. It' makes no sense, and it is absolutely cruel to freelancers.

Let alone the fact that the clients can basically receive the finished product and simply decide to cancel the project with imaginary reasons, the site will NEVER support the freelancer/worker in case of any dispute.

Because of the above mentioned reasons, which basically kill any probability of Freelancer.com growing into a BETTER marketplace, my mark is 1 star, and if I could, I would rate it - 10

Thank you for reading

Not a very good place to work
Article writer, content writer, and copywriter (Former Employee) –  Middletown, DEJune 15, 2019
The rates are low and there are many clients who will deceive you to work for them and then disappear once the work is finished. The company also closes accounts without giving any reason

Scam

This company has a poor screening process and allows many projects to be fake. These projects have bugs that allow money to be instantly withdrawal from your payment source. They do not value true remote workers and the money involved.
