There is no cost to register on GigSafari as either a freelancer or an employer.
Each time you bid on a project, you will use 1 bid proposal (See The Bid system on GigSafari and how to use it for more detail on this) You are given 10 free bid proposals when signing up, and can purchase additional bid proposals once these have been used.
When posting a project, you will need to indicate the project budget – what you are prepared to pay a freelancer to complete the project. Once you have selected a suitable freelancer, you will be required to pay the stipulated project budget as well as an administration fee of 12% which will be added to the project budget in order to cover software, administration and operational costs. The full amount (or agreed deposit) will need to be paid into the GigSafari account via Payfast, prior to the start of the project, in order to safeguard the freelancer.
