This is a freelance platform template where you can create a website similar to UpWork.com or Freelancer.com
Several Payment Gateways
There are a number of payment gateways from the most common ones to the most specific ones including Stripe, PayPal, Stripe Connect, 2Checkout, Mollie & Payfast.
Zip/Postcode Radius Search
Another great feature of this website is that your users can search for an item based on an address, or zip/post code, and on a given radius (miles or km). This feature is based on Google’s geo coordinates and results display on a map in the search page. So you can have a location based freelancer marketplace website.
Users can buy virtual cash and use the cash to pay for the projects, to submit proposals for projects, or to list new projects/tasks. Users can pay for the tasks with the credit and the paid members can withdraw the amount they earned. Each user has its own e-wallet and admin can control everything from the backend.
Your users get email notifications, when they bid, they get outbid, when they get new proposals posted for their project or when they receive private messages. The website has email notifications for freelancers, when they have received payments for their work. The best feature here: freelancers can signup for certain categories and they can get an email notification when a project is posted in their interest area.
With the credit system there is also an escrow feature. The idea is the project owner will deposit virtual money into escrow for the bid winner, until he completes the project. After that the escrow is released. And the bid winner, will have the funds in his account, ready for requesting a withdrawal from the admin of the site.
Freelancer Rating System
Freelancer and customers rate each other after the completed project and each user has his own general rating for the other users to see. Then the rating of each user is displayed next to their username by little 5 star rating icons. Also the rating is displayed in user profile and in bidding tables.
This tool will help your freelancers and customers, to better communicate through a safe system without revealing each others personal information, keep all activity under your website and also keeping you in control over the transactions. You are in total control of the private messages, and you can moderate from your administration area.
The theme offers several monetization tools, from charging a listing fee, charging a featured listing fee, charging for a monthly membership. Also you can charge a commission fee out of each sale at the end of each project. All transactions are logged into the admin side.
