    I enjoy using People Per hour as I find it easy and fun to use. It is quite different from other freelancer platforms as it really focuses on short projects, and freelancers have the possibility to publish and promote their "hourlies", a certain service they offer at a fixed price. Freelancers and employers get a certification rank which can decrease or increase depending on their activity and feedback. The only drawback is the variety of offers which is not great for my activities.

    Pros :

    • Original and innovative platform which makes it fun to look for projects.
    • You have the option to add a profile video and the tone is friendly.
    • You can publish "hourlies", which are services you offer at a fixed price and within a certain deadline. Employers can search for these services and buy them directly without publishing a job or you having to bid, which is definitely the quickest way for them to get the work done.
    • You sometimes receive alerts when an offer matches your skills, and you can bid without using any credit.
    • The certification rank is easy to understand and looks good on a profile, definitely motivating.
    • The workspace is very intuitive, with everything on the same page (your initial offer, chats, attachments, invoice and feedback).
    • It makes it very handy if you manage lots of projects at the same time.
    • Payment and feedback are really straightforward processes.

    Cons :

    • Bids are quite limited unless you receive offers to bid for free.
    • There are not so many offers published comparing to other freelancer platforms, at least in my area of specialty (mostly translations and web content).
    • Jobs are usually short and just one-time tasks rather than long term collaboration, but I guess this is the overall idea.
    • Most offers are in English, they should try to target more countries.

    People per hour is a freelancer platform that offers innovative features such as the “Hourlie”, which inverses the traditional freelancing approach: Instead of having freelancers browse client jobs, the Hourlie concept allows clients to search posted services. A weak point of People per Hour is the reduced user base, which affects both freelancer and clients: A specialized freelancer is less likely to find jobs that are a suitable match for his or her skillset, and a client who wants a highly specialized service is less likely to find the adequate freelancer. People per Hour is also expensive to use from the freelancer’s point of view, offering only 15 credits per month, while some competitors offer 60 or more. Hourlies, while an innovative concept, require an additional fee to be featured, and an unfeatured Hourlie is unlikely to be noticed by clients. Finally, commission fees start at 15% and only get reduced after a certain income threshold. People per Hour is an interesting freelancing platform to browse occasionally, but there are alternatives with a much higher user base and job variety, while charging lower commissions and fees.

    Pros :

    • Clean and well-designed web interface, which is intuitive and easy to use.
    • The Hourlie concept is very innovative, and allows the traditional freelancing approach to be reversed: Freelancers gain another method to promote their services at a predefined hourly rate.

    Cons :

    • The platform’s reduced user base affects the variety of both jobs and services.
    • Very expensive to use from the freelancer’s point of view: commissions are high, and featuring your proposals and Hourlies is expensive. Probably this has contributed to the site’s reduced user base compared with other platforms which offer more favorable conditions.
    • It penalizes users who don’t manage to find a minimum amount of jobs within the first months with a higher monthly fee. This is likely another factor that drives away users.

    I have tried a number of freelancing platforms to offer my software development services, including freelancer.com, Elance, PeoplePerHour, Guru and others. Out of all the ones I tried, PeoplePerHour seemed to be the most promising, however it did not deliver at all. The main advantage of PeoplePerHour is that the jobs generally pay more money than equivalent jobs on other competing sites, and this is what differentiates it. However, unlike sites such as Elance, PeoplePerHour tries its best to squeeze as much money as possible out of freelancers. The bottom line is that if you are not willing to pay PeoplePerHour more money above and beyond the commission when completing a job, then there is a very small chance of winning any jobs.

    Pros :

    • Support staff are very friendly.
    • Multiple payment methods are supported.

    Cons :

    • There are many malicious accounts who upload fake jobs and attach attachments which are actually viruses.
    • To submit an hourlie job, unless you pay money for it to be featured, you can forget any potential clients actually seeing it.
    • PeoplePerHour take a massive commission from completed jobs
    • Much higher than the competition.
    • No live chat unlike competitors.
    • If you are not able to complete at least two jobs after a set amount of time, you must then pay around 14 euro a month to use the site and simply apply for jobs. This is ridiculous considering that PPH's competitors are free to use.
    • When submitting a proposal to a job, the potential client does not always receive notifications straight away. Sure enough, PPH offer the option for you to pay extra so that your job application would be noted straight away.
