Note: Australian members pay 10% GST on all fees
What is a Featured Project?
This type of project is for hiring a full time or commission-based position (e.g. Sales) and you will save money if you have ongoing work. Fees are only charged on payments if the project value exceeds $4700 AUD.
Full Time projects cost $218.90 AUD incl. GST, payable by the Employer and are displayed in the job listings with a label.
What is a Private Project?
For Employers who value privacy of their project details, an NDA Project is a great way to list your project and discuss project requirements with Freelancers.
Freelancers must agree to a Non-Disclosure agreement (NDA) before placing a bid on your project. Freelancer.com.au provides a default NDA though we recommend you should always get legal advice on important documents like this. Otherwise, you may upload your own NDA which Freelancers will sign and agree to instead.
Once the Freelancer has digitally signed and agreed to the NDA, they agree to keep details discussed through private messages and files confidential.
The NDA project option must be selected during the project posting process; it cannot be applied once the project is live.
Note: NDA projects will still display your project's description and project clarification board comments publicly.
Urgent projects skip the admin queue and are listed immediately, receiving a faster response from Freelancers to help get your project started within 24 hours!
You can mark your project as Urgent for $9.90 AUD incl. GST. Your project will be listed for bidding for 24 hours and will also be displayed in the Ending Soon table
