It is the world’s largest freelance marketplace. UpWork is the combination of Elance and oDesk. It has real time chat support at the time of hiring freelancers by the clients. Clients have to pay 2.75% payment processing fee. Payment options are the Credit card, Paypal and Bank transfer.
It is very easy to open an free account here. A free account holder gets 20 proposals to submit for projects in a month. Besides one can sell services also for free. The best part I liked the most that are I can submit a proposal for a project that doesn’t depend on countries or currencies. People can receive and pay money in their countries’ currency by using Credit / Debit Card / Net banking.
