It’s a project in which you pay your Freelancer by the number of hours they work on the project. The Freelancer will invoice you for payment. Hourly projects are suitable for all types of projects, especially those which require a Freelancer to work specific hours, ongoing engagements, and projects where the scope is not clearly defined.
You can hire a Freelancer for as many hours as you need. While creating your project, under "Hours of Work Required", specify the number of hours you would like to hire your Freelancer for and whether those hours are per week or month.
If you are unsure how long your project will take to complete, simply select “Not Sure” and Freelancers will provide their estimates on how long it will take. You can then select the Freelancer appropriate for your project.
Can I specify how long my Hourly Project goes for?
Yes, you can specify your project duration in Days, Weeks and Months, or select Ongoing if it’s an indefinite work engagement.
If you are unsure how long your project will go for, simply select “Not Sure” and you can negotiate the duration directly with Freelancers.
