Gigsgen Fees and Charges


For Employers/Clients:


Gigsgen enables free registration, project posting, freelancer/talent bidding, review of freelancer portfolios, and discussion of project requirements. If you decide to award the project, we will levy a modest project fee proportional to the chosen bid, serving as an introductory charge.

The specific cost and method of fee assessment depend on the project type.

Gigsgen exclusively operates on a fixed-price project basis and does not currently support hourly contracts. However, if clients prefer hourly payment arrangements, they can engage in discussions with the talent regarding the estimated project duration and mutually agree on a lump sum price.

For fixed-price projects, we apply a fee of 3% or $3.00 USD (whichever is greater) upon awarding the project. If the project scope expands and you subsequently make additional payments exceeding the original bid amount, we will also charge the project fee on the excess payments.

You have the option to cancel the project from your dashboard within a period of five (5) days after acceptance, provided that the talent has not completed the project, entitling you to a full refund of your fee.


When placing a service order, employers/clients are required to provide funds equivalent to the total service price. The Gigsgen Payment System safeguards your payment until you are completely satisfied with the delivered work.

Please only release the payment once you are fully content with the work that has been delivered.

For Freelancers/Talent:

Talent can freely register, create profiles, select project skills of interest, upload portfolios, showcase completed projects in the marketplace to sell the prototypes, receive project notifications, engage in project discussions with employers, and bid on projects without incurring any charges. As part of a promotion, all subscribed talent can place unlimited bids each month.

Gigsgen exclusively operates on a fixed-price project basis and does not currently offer hourly contracts. However, if clients prefer to pay on an hourly basis, they can negotiate with the talent regarding the estimated project duration and mutually agree on a lump sum price.


For fixed-price projects, upon being awarded a project and accepting it, we apply a small project fee relative to the value of the selected bid as an introduction fee. If you subsequently receive payments exceeding the original bid amount, we will also charge the project fee on the additional payments.

As an ongoing promotion, the fee for fixed-price projects is 10% or $5.00 USD, whichever is greater.

Dispute Arbitration Charges

The fee for arbitration in the case of a milestone dispute shall amount to $5.00 USD or 5% of the disputed amount, whichever is greater.

Our dispute resolution system is intentionally designed to facilitate the resolution of issues pertaining to milestone payments between both parties without resorting to arbitration.

Upon filing a dispute, either party may, after a period of 4 days (or 7 days if the dispute is initiated by the freelancer), opt to escalate the matter to paid arbitration. The opposing party will then have an additional 4 days to agree to cover the arbitration fee and for both parties to present any final evidence. Failure by the opposing party to make the payment within the specified timeframe will result in their forfeiture of the dispute.

Subsequently, the arbitration fee shall be reimbursed to the party that emerges as the prevailing party in the dispute.

Offsetting Fee

Users who contravene our User Agreement by engaging in communications and transactions outside of the platform shall be subject to a penalty equivalent to 30% of the maximum project budget or the agreed-upon amount.

Maintenance Fee

Inactive user accounts that have not been accessed for a continuous period of six months shall be subject to a maintenance fee of up to $10.00 USD per month. This fee is intended to cover the costs associated with storage, bandwidth, support, and management required to host the user's profile, portfolio storage, listing in directories, file storage, and message storage. Upon subsequent reactivation of the account, these fees will be promptly refunded upon user request.
