FAQ: Why do freelancers pay for registration?

  • For registration as a freelancer at Zealancer a nominal fee of twice the hourly rate will be charged. Calculation example: A freelancer with an hourly rate of $40 will be charged a registration fee of $80 + GST.
  • The registration fee ensures that only professional freelancers are listed. This way, we limit the number of freelancers, which increases the likelihood of a project for the listed freelancers.
  • If you do not find an assignment within one year, we are happy to refund the registration fee immediately.

P.S. Since we manually edit and optimise each profile, the registration fee is done below cost. Freelance-Market generates about 90% of its revenues through the introduction fee, which is only charged if we actually introduce the freelancer to a client.
