What do you like best?

Here you will easily find a professional for your work who will do everything quickly and efficiently. You can track reviews and comments first, and then hire it for your work. If you offer your work to Freelancer it will be easy to find an employer. A good description of employees, you can immediately understand who can entrust their work and who does not.

It's bad that I can not communicate with all the performers, only with those whom I have approved for work.

"Great Mediator For Developers"

What do you like best?

Freelancer is the best platform that serves as a perfect mediator between developers and the employees.I have served as both the roles.Being a developer I have taken many projects from freelancer for working during weekends and have delivered them on time and have earned some extra money.It has great services for managing finance.Using freelancer you can transfer to bank directly without any extra fee.The bidding process for getting a project is also good.During my work we have employed many freelancer for completing the work for which we don't have employees.So freelancer is best.

What do you dislike?

Freelancer has nothing to dislike about it.I like everything about it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend using freelancer for getting work as well as as an employer to get better employees for your work.You cannot always afford to keep all types of people at work but you can hire them according to your need for certain projects using freelancer which is a perfect mediate.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used freelancer for both getting projects and hiring freelancers.It has served as the perfect mediator.The freelancers are ranked according to their work and also their ratings help us to hire them.The portfolio of freelancer gives you opportunity to know its previous works.I have used it for developing also,The bidding system is also good and getting projects according to your skills is great.

"Getting work done | Quick and easy"

What do you like best?

It is quick and easy to sign up on this platform. The process to post projects is really simple. There are already so many people on this platform that we can easily get access to several employees from all across the world.

What do you dislike?

The charges levied by freelancer.com is too high! For small projects especially sometimes it becomes affordable. If the charges are lowered down, it would be great for everyone.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please go for it for your projects. Just choose the right candidate for your project.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can basically hire people temporary for some work instead of hiring people full time in the company. This reduces the operating cost significantly. Also, we are able to choose which employees to give a particular work to, due to the employee having significant expertise in the field. So for even doing parallel things, this is quite useful.

"Mediator for Developers and Employers"

What do you like best?

Freelancer is cloud platform which serves as a mediator for developers and employers.Using freelancer.com service an employer posts a project and many developers who are interested bid on the project.Employer chooses one employer according to their bid and portfolio and awards the project to that developer.This process is so easy.I have personally used freelancer for getting small work for our team during our free hours to generate some more revenue and it is best.The finance managing is also good,it has a great financial dashboard where you can manage your revenue.

What do you dislike?

Freelancer doesn't allow one project to be done by more than one developer.This is a great improvement that they can use to improvise their services.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Freelancer is a great platform to work with because here everything is decoratively managed.We have a great experience working with freelancer so it is greatly recommended for getting a job as a developer and work according to your flexible hours.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using freelancer for getting small projects during our free time to generate some more revenue.Using freelancer sometimes our company also takes some projects from freelancer if any team doesn't have work to do.Using this they also get some bit.Freelancer serves best as a mediator between us to provide developers to employers and work to developers.

"Great Place For Hiring Expert Professionals"

What do you like best?

I like many things about freelancer like

-> Supports direct B2b chatting options

-> Transperent Payment methods with dedicated financial dashboard

-> Easy to hire people from various fields

-> You can also get projects for yourself for work

-> Contest option is also great

So overall it is a great platform to work with.

What do you dislike?

I think that the percentage share taken by freelancer is much higher so that should be reduced,other all thing are really great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend freelancer for outsourcing product modules for the project because on freelancer we get best professionals that deliver our product on time and with great precision.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use freelancer for hiring people for my project modules and after our modules are delivered we pay them using the milestones option that they provide so that provides transparent payments and pay as you go method so that both are satisfied.Freelancer helps us to avoid hiring unnecessary people for certain jobs which we can outsource through freelancer

"Good hiring experience"

What do you like best?

It is best for hiring developers having professional experience for much low cost and cost per project so that you have to pay for only your work which you want that developer to do.Also the system of contests helps us get variety of work and choose which best suits you and award that freelancer so overall it is great.

What do you dislike?

Freelancer is free to use for hiring and also to find work so it is great.You have to pay it only when you get your project so just awesome,No dislikes for freelancer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

if your company is working with various fields and project and cannot afford developers from all field than freelancer will provide you the solution of hiring developer for particular project and so on for all your projects.It is a great service so definitely recommended.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use freelancer for hiring freelancer on the go for the required project and when the project is over we pay the freelancer and if only required for other project we hire same person otherwise find the appropriate freelancer on the website so freelancer.com is the backbone for our company.

"Hiring platform along with working"

What do you like best?

You can find developers or rather freelancers from across every field in IT as well outside IT like literature and all,so it is the best part amalgamation of all field developers also the system of interaction with the developers is quite good so you don't have worry if you are new to the platform.

What do you dislike?

The commission taken by them from the employer is not fare because already they are taking commission from the developers on the same project so why take money from employer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend freelancers to all business companies which require talent from across all fields and cannot afford on daily basis can use freelancer for hiring freelancers for part time or rather for a particular project.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use freelancer on daily basis for employing people for small parts like data entry and all for which we don't have time as well as for big projects in which we don't have expertise so as I can say we are dependent on freelancer for our daily usage.Also sometimes we also contribute to freelancer for some projects which we can do.

"FREELANCER.COM CAN BE A NICE RESOURCE IF YOU NEED TO OUTSOURCE YOUR BUSINESS TASKS"

What do you like best?

Freelancer.com is a decent website to get some qualified freelancers to help you get the job done. It doesn´t matter if you need someone to develop your website, write your essay or help you with the marketing of your business, is very likely you´ll find someone of value there. Something I like about freelancer is it´s really easy and simple to post and job, and you can arrange its exposure by selecting the job field and the qualities for the person you´re looking for. I also like the integrated floating chat, which allows you to talk to your freelancers anywhere inside the freelancer.com site, because no other freelancing site offers this feature.

What do you dislike?

I don´t like many things about Freelancer: you can´t post a direct price for your job. For example, if you want to state that you can pay $300 dollars for a given job, you don´t have that option; you can only select within two amounts of money (for example, between $100 to $500 dollars, then between $1000 to $10,000 dollars) and this can be a waste of time, because some freelancers will ask a lot more than you can pay because you can´t state a definite amount. Also, I don´t like that Freelancers tend to increase the perception of their value and charge a lot of money for simple tasks. To be honest, even though freelancer.com is a good site, there are a few better alternatives out there.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think you´re a decent platform for hiring people on the internet. If I were you, I would only add the option to add the exact amount for which I want freelancers to perform my task.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problem I frequently solve by using freelancer.com is outsourcing: I need people who can make some of my tasks so that I can focus on what I know how to do better: creating my own content. Consequently, if I need someone to do some local marketing, to reach some people, to create / edit my blog or site, or to do any minor task, then I can use freelancer.com to try to find the right candidate.

"Best place for hiring."

What do you like best?

Best thing about freelancer is that you get various types of developers with much less effort and less cost.Also you get your work delivered with much ease and total transparency between developer and hirer which is a great advantage of freelancer.

What do you dislike?

A suggestion that you should keep a feature for communicating with the developer even if he/she has not bid on your project.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommended for developers having knowledge and for big companies who don't want to develop everything by themselves and want to give chance to others.It really makes your project progress faster and also you get a high quality work from professionals.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use freelancer to give some part of our project to freelancers which we are not able to develop or either it takes more time to develop.this saves both our time and money and we can easily deliver our project to our clients on time.

"Take Caution If You Use This To Find Work!"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of use. It is one click apply for many jobs unless you would like to add more detail to your application.

What do you dislike?

There are way too many scam artists on this website who hire for scam jobs that either take your money or ask you to do acts which are against better judgement and morals. In my opinion Freelancer.com does not even pre screen the people who they allow to post jobs. I have found maybe one or two legitimate jobs on this website.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be cautious when looking for work. Stay away from the jobs which ask you to talk to them outside of freelancer.com, those ones are usually the scam jobs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Freelancer was easy to use. I would post jobs I was hiring for on this website as well as apply for freelance work too.

Best for getting and providing work,Milestones help us get work done on time due to greed of money which is a great feature of freelancer,Also the chat only to assigned developer helps us from getting irritating messages from other bidders.

"Access to Casual Technical Labour at Your Finger Tips"

What do you like best?

Access to international talent at your finger tips. Bids on projects within minutes. Incredibly easy to use.

What do you dislike?

Fees. The fee structure for freelancers themselves discourages relationships with programmers and incentives talented western human resources to leave the platform. Lots of spam bids.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Freelancers pay monies upfront when you accept a project, as such, it's important to consider this behaviour when releasing payments and working with them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Hiring casual labour to deal with technical problems, with Freelancer.com I've manged the construction of small, medium and large websites and tackled a wide variety of problems. With Freelancer.com I've hired web programmers, website administrators, graphic designers, writers and desktop programmers.

"An open wide options to hire/work from your house"

What do you like best?

As employer:

It is possible hire someone with high skills in an expertise area. Actually, very responsible and faster guys to work with. However, it contains lazy and non-responsible workers. The rating/comments associated to each freelancer must be check before contact him.

As employee:

You can earn some money! At beginning is hard due the competition, the option is low-budget for your work. Once you gain some experience (XP) and good reviews, then you can get more jobs, and more money.

What do you dislike?

The 3rd (or 4th sometimes) parties! There are companies which subcontract other guys from jobs taken in other pages (such as TopTal). That's could be annoying in the communication.

Other important aspect is related to the reliance between pairs: Both employer and employee can be resign the project, getting the other side "alone" in the project. That's is because there is not a strong verification of identity. It might be fake.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a small/medium problem/project to be solved in short/medium time getting satisfaction, I recommend Freelancer. For big projects, this is not the right website.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Coding, designing and awesome ideas are the most "benefit" areas that can be solved using the Freelancer's community.

The graphics designer community is terrific! Very talented guys working in this site, with excellent reviews with fair prices for theirs jobs.

As employer, is necessary the constant checking of the website, then it allows post proposal in a project only when employer is available to work.

"Great idea, just a pretty greedy company"

What do you like best?

The response times from potential freelancers is great, the interface is easy to use, and there are a lot of features for no cost. It's great to use to find individuals to work with. I don't have a lot of amazing things to say about them, but they do have a great idea going on, and they are really simple to use.

What do you dislike?

Their prices are insane. They charge a 10% fee on everything you pay to a Freelancer. In some cases that can be well over a hundred dollars extra just for going through them. Also, a lot of other features you must pay to use such as "rushed", "premium", or even if you have very specific requirements about freelancers. Their customer support system is also ridiculous. I currently have a case I've been waiting on for more than two weeks with absolutely no response. Their support is incompetent, and does not seem to actively serve you.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use them only to find individuals, then establish contracts outside of Freelancer.com. It is not worth spending all that money to find a freelancer, and then still have to pay an extra 10% override on every single thing you do.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Freelancer to recruit web developers or sales representatives for a web hosting and development firm. It is really easy to find someone to use, and it doesn't take long at all. Sometimes it is only a matter of seconds before you have a quote ready to go.

"It's the crowded and no-frills version of UpWork"

What do you like best?

I really like the fact that it is a large online marketplace for freelancers looking for work, as well as employers looking for work to be completed.

It has some track record. The site have been in business since 2004, and has been backed by substantial investors and legitimate management and leadership teams.

The site offers a variety of project types in fields such as web and software development, design, writing, marketing, data entry, translations and localization, and more.

It's super easy to set up an account and bid on/post a job.

The marketplace offers a good selection of payment options.

What do you dislike?

It's painful to get paid sometimes. Users have complained of lengthy payment delays as their accounts undergo “investigation.”

Customer service has a reputation of being slow to offer assistance.

If you're a Freelancer, you are required to pay monthly payments for membership packages just to be able place more bids on projects (just like UpWork with the connects system) and increase your skill-sets (the skill tests are free in UpWork)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Overall, Freelancer.com seems to have a great vision for the freelancing community, and is not necessarily a site that you should avoid. However, as a suggestion, if you do decide to sign up, be sure to contact the company directly and undergo one of their “investigations” before you begin hiring freelancers or bidding on any projects. By addressing the issue upfront, you can proactively provide them with any additional information they may need, which will help to substantially reduce the risk of running into any future problems.

Another suggestion is to be careful who you hire to work on your projects—use your discretion to judge a freelancer’s character and work experience as best you can. Freelancer.com provides employers with some of the necessary tools to help discern the difference between low and high quality work, though they do not have the resources to guarantee that all work completed will match your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's a backup source of income.

"Makes it easy to apply to a wide variety of freelance work, compete with people all around the world"

What do you like best?

I like that you can find a whole lot of freelancer opportunities! There is really a wide variety of job posted and all you have to do is choose the one you're interested in and apply.

You can now directly chat with the potential client and discuss the mission and your offer.

What do you dislike?

I've just started, but it seems difficult to compete with people from all around the world! I think wages/needs are different from places to places, and it seems difficult to get your offer accepted with what would be a low income for US standards... but maybe it's just the job I've been looking at.

It's free to some extents... you will have to pay to get certifications (that will help you stand out of other offers). You also have a limited number of offers you can make per month.

But I think once you start getting offers accepted, it's probably very much worth it!

Recommendations to others considering the product

As one of the largest sites there are more opportunities to get a job, hourly or a fixed payment

"Good for smaller projects - not hourly based"

What do you like best?

When you find good freelancer it’s perfect, but sifting through the large percentage of mediocre ones is a bit difficult

What do you dislike?

No protection for hourly projects. When a freelancer claims they did you project you’re automatically charged regardless of the quality of their work. Stick to flat rate projects

"Freelancing Job alerts"

What do you like best?

Push notifications when you get awarded a bid or to stay on top of the newest bids.

What do you dislike?

You need to pay to "certify" yourself on a different set of skills. Like doing a CV and having to pay for every single skill you have. I think it's over the top.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep in mind that once you're awarded a bid, you need to be alert of any possible scam along the way.
