What: A freelance marketplace for content creators, web developers, tech support, sales and marketing professionals, accounting, translation and administration work

Expected pay: $10 – $75 per hour, set by you, based on skill level

Commissions & Fees: 15% (paid by the employer)

Where: Nationwide

Requirements: Be legally able to work; provide resume and background information; pass a screening process



  • Extensive screening
  • Plenty of work
  • Well paid
  • You can group chat with other freelancers on the platform

How It Works:

After screening, you set up an account and view open projects from employers. If decide to take a project, you contact the client for a 10-15 minute chat, then the client decides whether or not to hire you.

Freelancers set their own rates based on their skill levels. Entry-level positions (generally reserved for people outside of the U.S.) pay $5 to $10. Mid-Level professionals charge $10 to $30, and experts can charge $30+. 15% commission is taken by the site. This fee is added to your rate to be paid by the employer, and is not deducted from your rate. Rates are unlikely to be undercut by low-wage workers due to the screening process.  


If you’re a skilled worker in any of the industries mentioned above, this site is worth a look.
