PeoplePerHour: Online Freelance Marketplace

Israel Nicolas 14-05-2010

The internet is a great way to hire freelancers if you are looking to outsource jobs or services such as programming, content writing, graphic design, research, accounting, and so on. PeoplePerHour is a freelance marketplace that helps you find people that can do the work that you require.


Simply post a job on the site and you will receive bids from various freelancers so that you can review and choose the right person for the job.

PeoplePerHour has over 47,000 independent service providers in 150 countries that you can hire. You can post three kinds of jobs on the website: fixed price jobs, hourly jobs, and commission-based jobs. The bids that you receive will specify what the individual freelancers can do for you and at what rate. You can compare the bidders by looking at their profile which contains their credentials, portfolio, and feedback from other clients.

In PeoplePerHour, you only pay the work when it is already done. However you need to deposit an escrow that can be released once the job is complete.

Unlike other freelance job sites, the service is free as the website charges the freelancers instead. PeoplePerHour is a flexible and cost-effective way to steamroll your business and get the job done.

    Hi, this is Nicole from vWorker (formerly known as Rentacoder). Like PeoplePerHour, vWorker provides access to programming, writing, illustration, even data entry workers.

    I'd like to point out a few differences between our service and PeoplePerHour since those differences could influence the success of an outsourced project.

    The more bids you receive, the more bargaining power and selection you have, and the less you have to pay. However, some sites make money for themselves in ways that reduce the # of bids you receive. PeoplePerHour for example, charges its workers a 20% fee + 1.9%-3.5%. vWorker charges a maximum of 6.5%-15%.

    In addition, PeoplePerHour workers can't make more 10 bids/month unless they pay a monthly fee of £7.95 (for 40 bids) or £14.95 (for 80 bids). That not only reduces the number of qualified workers, it can additionally raise your costs since workers often pass their expenses onto you. At vWorker, we do not place a bid limit on any of our workers for any reason.

    PeoplePerHour doesn't publish its arbitration details. At vWorker, we offer arbitration on all projects free of charge and we test your deliverables to make sure they meet requirements. Even more, we show the public how our arbitrators make their decisions.

    If you have any questions, please let me know. You can also call in to talk to a facilitator 7 days a week, or email us.
