Prolancer Fees and Charges

Prolancer is free to sign up, post a job, and to receive proposals from freelancers and contractor.

We charge a small project fee relative to the value of the selected proposal, as an introduction fee when you choose to award the project to a freelancer or hire a contractor. The total fee and how this is charged, depends on whether it is a freelancing project or a contract job.
