Why creating a Freelancer Marketplace?
The demand for Freelancer Marketplaces is continuously growing at a high rate. With 57.3 millionfreelancers in the US alone (which makes around 36% of the total country’s workforce), there is no denying that Freelancing is becoming increasingly popular. Also, it’s expected that freelancers will account for as much as 80% of the entire workforce worldwide by 2030.
What is a freelancer marketplace? It is an online platform where businesses can find and hire individual contractors and freelancers to do some work remotely. It acts as an intermediary providing a safe and convenient way to contract remote experts for short-time and long-time projects.
Starting your own marketplace can certainly be daunting, but it helps when you use the right MaaS (marketplace-as-a-service) platform to aid you in bringing your idea to life.
Key Plugin Features
Easy Onboarding Processes
It is a must-have for a Freelancer Marketplace to have a quick and easy onboarding process that will benefit and give ease your upcoming platform users.
The plugin comes with a Short and Quick Project Submission Form for customers to list their projects on your platform. Then, registration is done right after creating the project to make the process easier and simplier for the users.
Then to easily onboard Freelancers on a certain project, customers can either hire them right on the Freelancers List or on the Freelancer Profile. Also, users can also use their Social Logins to register by using the OneAll Social Login Plugin.
The plugin comes with a bidding system, where Freelancers can submit their bids. Bids include also important terms such as Time required, Milestones and a description. Once a Bid has accepted, the project is moved to execution modus.
The plugin allows you to set and charge a commission fee either or from both sides (the Freelancer and the Customer). This gives you full control on your business model by setting the fee rates and which side(s) to charge the fee.
The plugin comes with an in-built messaging system to allow Freelancers and Customers to discuss the project and bid in more detailed before accepting. It is a must-have for a Freelancer Marketplace to have an excellent form and way of communication for each user end.
This plugin allows both users to create Project Milestones that needs to be approved. Here, Freelance Project uses Milestones for Project Payments. During the Bidding Process, the Freelancer needs to specify the required Milestones while during Project Execution, both users can also create additional milestones.
During project execution and upon completion, both Customers and Freelancers can submit their ratings to the other party. Ratings use a 1 to 5 Star scale and also an input field to leave some additional comments. This enables your platform to collect and display valuable feedbacks that help create trust on the users as well as attract additional users.
During project execution, either party can submit disputes or claims against each other, for reasons of unresponsiveness, not enough information or other reasons which you can define in the settings.
Freelancer Marketplaces rely on a set of Email Processes to drive user actions. Therefore, this plugin has a built-in, countless email templates which can be edited and customized all the way you want.
Optimizing the wordings of your email are key to pull your users through the workflows starting from onboarding, bidding, project execution, disputes, ratings and project completion.
The plugin contains easy to understand, simple but powerful page layouts so that both Freelancers and Customers can easily track the progress of their projects.
This plugin has a built-in, extensive and complete Form Builders that enable site admins to customize both the Freelancer and Customer Registration Forms. It almost has all the important fields you might want to add in your forms, which will surely give more value and color to your User Registration and Profiles.
Documentation & File Folders
Once the project has been approved, users can upload files and documents through the Messaging System. The plugin keeps them in a separate File and Documentation Folder aimed to properly document the project and keep all files in one place.
Our plugin also captures the timeline of projects in Execution modus. So both parties can keep track of what’s happening with this project and identify progress easily.
Payments & Withdrawals
Once the customer confirms that the project is accepted or a milestone has been delivered, the funds are credited to the Freelancer’s Balance, paid in escrow by the customer at that time.
If the Freelancer has then a positive fund balance, he can request a withdrawal. The payment then can be done via PayPal transfer (e.g. you can upload a mass payment file in PayPal for larger platforms).
