Why creating a Freelancer Marketplace?
The demand for Freelancer Marketplaces is continuously growing at a high rate. With 57.3 million freelancers 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

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.

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.
