I welcome all new freelancer to read this step to know about difficulties of freelancer.com! the first point is freelancer.com allow only few number bids for free member. you cannot apply for huge project unless you are a paid member. either, you can check all others sites they are about same. however, freelancer.com has another problem on withdrawal. if you already earned a few bucks they will hold for 15 days. it always happen for new member who place a withdrawal request for first time.
In some case freelancer ask additional identification like photo ID, address verification statement etc. there is no exact time to ask such information. i prefer to submit your account verification details before making money. you should have a correct payment method for your country.
A few common problem on working with freelancer.com
- First time withdrawal delay 15 days (up to 30 days)
- Complex verification required.
- Payment method verification required for buyers.
- They do not handle external disputes on your behalf. (if your buyer dispute out of freelancer)
