Start Today For a Great Future

The idea of iWorkPay is really simple. It’s focus is to bring Freelancers and Clients in India to an On-line Marketplace where the Clients can post projects according to their requirements and the Contractors can submit a proposal, without having to go through any paperwork. The entire process of iWorkPay can be explained in the following set of steps:

  • Project Posting by Client

    Client posts a Project on iWorkPay. A Clients can post any number of projects with their registered account. Each project is reviewed for approval before going live on the site, making sure that the fake projects and projects created for the sake of advertisement are rejected. A Project Posting has the following details: Project Description, Project Title, Budget, Category, Subcategory, Skills Required, Project Time Frame and other additional details.

  • Proposal Submission by Freelancers

    Once a project is posted, the Freelancers can view the details of the Project on iWorkPay. Based on their understanding of the Project requirements the Freelancers will send a proposal to the client, quoting a price, and adding a Bid Summary, in which they can mention about their profile and also how they are best suited for this project. Each Freelancer is provided 60 bids per month to bid on various projects. This is to make sure that an individual doesn’t just go on bidding for various projects, without making any serious effort on the proposal. Client is notified of each proposal via email.

  • Project Award by Client

    The client then goes through all submitted proposal in their manage project section. The Client can message the Freelancers or ask them for more detail through iWorkPay Project Workroom. Once the client thinks he has found the right candidate, he then goes ahead and awards the project to that freelancer. At this point of time, the project is closed for further bidding.

  • Project Accept by Freelancer

    Once the client awards the project to a Freelancer, a notification is sent to them, to accept the project in 3 days time otherwise the Project Award is automatically rejected. The Freelancer also has an option to reject the project award in case they feel its not suited for them. Once a Project is accepted, the work on the Project starts but before that an essential step is to get the funds escrowed from the client.

  • Finalizing Terms and Getting Funds Escrowed

    So the freelancer has finally got the project, so what’s the next step. The next step is to finalize the terms, in case something needs to be changed. Terms & Milestone is basically a sort of agreement between the two parties on the deliverable and final cost that they have agreed upon. Once this is done, the Freelancer should generate an invoice for the client to fund the escrow amount. This is the most important step for all freelancers since getting funds in the escrow means that you are safe and can begin work with the peace of mind. Same applies for clients, the escrow fund will ensure that the client doesn’t need to make any advance payment and can safely start working on the Project.

  • Completing Work and Getting Paid

    Now the main task of completing the actual work remains. The Freelancer will deliver the work to the Client as per accepted terms, and once that is done the Freelancer can request the Client to release funds. Once the fund is released by the Client, the amount is credited into the Freelancers account and an amount equal to the service fee is deducted from the Freelancer account at that very moment.

    So the process of Hiring and Working on iWorkPay is really simple and you can contact us for any sort of assistance required.

How does iWorkPay make money?

Manage Your Profitable Account

iWorkPay makes money by charging a service fee to the Freelancer from the payments made to them. The service charge vary from time to time. During its promotion period the service fee has been kept at 5% + service tax for all freelancers. Please note iWorkPay doesn’t ask for any upfront payment for creating account, posting projects or for bidding on the projects.

  • Ensurity about Clients and Freelancers Payments

    iWorkPay ensures that Clients and Freelancers are safe and secure while doing transactions by using its Escrow service. The escrow service works in the following way, instead of making an advance payment to the freelancer and thereby putting the money at risk, the Client escrows the fund in the project account and after the freelancer has successfully completed a milestone or project, the funds are released from the escrow to the Freelancer. At this point, iWorkPay cuts a fees equal to the service charge on the amount being credited to the Freelancer’s account. The Freelancers are notified of the service charge while submitting proposals.
