Fiverr is little different than Freelancer & UpWork. Here freelancers can’t send proposals as clients can’t post projects. Here the freelancers create gigs starting at 5 USD. The clients can purchase the gigs offered by freelancers. Here is also real time chatting available so before purchasing a gig clients can confirm all of the details and requirements.
Truelancer is a similar platform like Freelancer but it is in developing stage. It is not so popular by now. The client can organise contest here also. It gives 2 proposals free every day from android app.
