Frequently Asked Questions.
Anything you can do on a computer can be done through DF Freelancer.
Freelancers in our marketplace can tackle a wide range of projects — big or small, one-off or repeat, individual or team-based.

What’s the difference between finding clients online, versus locally?
Technology is making online work similar to local work, with added speed, cost, and quality advantages.
To begin with, online work can happen wherever there’s a reliable Internet connection — an office, home, café, or rooftop. This also means you can choose who you work with, among a larger pool of people from around the globe.
Payments are simplified when using DF Freelancer, as time tracking and invoicing are integrated into the process. Funding projects is also streamlined as the DF Freelancer platform builds fixed-price payment options into the process.
There are some things that don't change when working freelance jobs with clients you find online. Once the project begins, you'll want to communicate openly and clearly, and work to create a successful project for all.
How does Upwork make money?
DF Freelancer charges freelancers a 20%, 10%, or 5% service fee depending on the total amount they’ve billed with a client.
We also offer optional premium memberships and subscription services.
