The Bad

  • Limited buyer protection
There is a lot of great work available but not much protection for buyers. Unfortunately iFreelance really doesn't protect their marketplace.  Several users have filed complaints about few users that are actually scamming buyers on their projects.  There aren't many ways to keep yourself safe from scammers. Any agreement on work you accept is communicated between you and the freelancer, leaving iFreelance free from liability. So if you need reliability, this may be a risky choice. You may end up with little or no work for projects you've paid for. There are several things that concern us about this freelance platform:
  1. Less than 100 jobs posted
  2. No guarantee of payment
  3. No known dispute resolution
  4. Reports of scams

The Bottom Line

No Guarantees! Use iFreelance at your own will. With little to no protection for your work, be cautious of scammers and be sure to cover project expectations up front with your freelancer. Be warned... There are no promises here. For freelancers this is another great way to pick up additional work. Honest ethics are up to you though, so please ensure that you are offering professional, valuable work every time. All in all with hundreds of projects to choose from, you can find freelancers working for almost every department offered in businesses today.

Not what it used to be, in more than one way. iFreelance used to be a great platform on which F/T freelance writers, designers, etc., could distinguish themselves and land a few great projects. In recent years, its Customer Svc. (solely online) has slipped in response times and responsiveness. I was set to receive job alerts and stopped receiving them. I'm paid up through who knows when and stopped being able to login. Now? When I try to visit iFreelance dot com I'm mysteriously lead to some other site which also does NOT offer contact info--just a contact form. I want my $ back and have been trying to resolve this for at least 1 yr. No luck.
