Hiring and payment options

Hourly rate based projects

For hourly rate based projects you pay freelancers only for the hours they work. You and your freelancer negotiate the hourly rate before starting the work. You determine how many hours per week you need your freelancer to commit to the job, and pay CoOutsource Escrow beforehand for each week. At the end of the week, your freelancer provides you the weekly report stating the amount of hours spent on each assignment. You review and approve the report so that the freelancer gets paid. If freelancer has not reached the weekly limit of hours, the remaining payment for the unworked hours is automatically transferred as a deposit for the next week or refunded to you according to your set preferences.

Fixed price based projects

For fixed price based projects you divide your project into milestones and set payment for each milestone. Before starting the milestone you pay CoOutsource Escrow the amount set for the milestone. When the freelancer completes the milestone, you get a work progress report. You review and approve the report so that the freelancer gets paid. If the freelancer fails to complete the milestone the payment is automatically refunded to you.
