  1. Hello!
    It’s quite a nice list, but I’d added a couple of websites if I were you. For example, here’s my favorite job board: https://www.xplace.com/. It has high rates, a wide range of job opportunities, and no commission fee. I’m sure there are people who find these conditions attractive.

  2. Hi,

    Dolancing (dolancing.com) is a very simple website to hire freelancers & to get freelance work online! It is launched few days back and is the fast growing community. You should check it 🙂


  3. If you are an Elite Business Freelancer, you should sign up (it takes less than one minute) on Skillbridge: http://www.skillbridge.co/

  4. Just a small thought…
    Although PeoplePerHour is overall very nice, it’s a shame to discover so obtuse fees. Most of them are extremely high and compel customer loyalty, but ok… they are clear and everyone using spontaneously the site have to accept the cons.

    However, I’ve just found out that there’s a hidden fee for international bank transfer of around 7-8%. So, for those who aren’t aware, you can pay up to $23 for each $100 earned on PPH (totaling all fees).

    I understand PPH may not directly profit with that, since, as they said by email, “These are extra fees that are removed from the intermediary bank and not from our side”. Nevertheless, they do delude the users not informing anywhere about conversion rates and clearly stating that the only fee for international bank transfer is £1.99.

    I really hope PPH low these fees down or, at least, stop hiding some of them…

  5. “You missed one Great Website for Freelance Jobs: Freelancertree[.]com
    Check it out. Happy Freelancing !!”

  6. Perfect selection.
    oDesk is the popular freelancing site.

  7. Good selection.
    oDesk is very good, but there a lot of disadvantages in the popular freelance platforms now.
    We’ve launched Localancers and I hope we’ll be somewhere in top 10 for the 2015 edition 😉

    I used to get works from them but, since two weeks ago, they´ve put my account under revision and don´t let me search for new jobs.

    They have told me that this could be for four reasons:
    Poor feedback ( I´ve 4.6 stars of 5)
    Take works from their platform ( I´ve given them my passwork so they can check all my conversations with my clients…)
    Low performance ( as I told, 4.6 stars. My lower rate was 3,8 and, the second lower, was 4.9 stars…)
    Disputes ( I don´t even open disputes with people that didn´t pay me, just to avoid to have problems with the wrong people, to keep my profile clean…)
    Complains…but after 5 mails and 6 chats with their help system, they still can´t tell me if somebody have complain about anything…)

    Also, they told me that, in order to start the review, I must close all my contracts…then, in another mail, they told me that they can do it and I don´t need to close long term contracs…in another mail told me that the revision have started….and then, in the next mail, told me that they can´t start my revision before I CLOSE my contracts….and I need to told that to even my newest clients.

    SO unprofessional. You can check my profile: DeLeoRey.
    But belive me. DON¨T USE ELANCE.
