Elance Snapshot

441 Logue Avenue, Suite 150
Mountain View, CA 94043


Elance is an online platform that connects employers with qualified freelance professionals who are available for outsourced jobs. Web design, mobile applications, writing, business services, multimedia, marketing, finance, legal, engineering, and administrative support are among the many skill categories with available work. By creating a profile that showcases experience, credentials and portfolio samples, freelance contractors can attract interested clients and make successful bids for posted jobs.

Basic membership in Elance is free but provides limited access to available work. Three additional paid membership levels provide contractors with progressively more access to posted jobs and job categories. All Elance members must pass a brief proficiency test to get access to contractor jobs. Membership is restricted to those 18 years of age or older. Elance membership is available internationally as well as to U.S.-based freelancers.

Compensation for each job is agreed upon between the freelance contractor and the client. Hourly and fixed-price jobs are both possible. Elance offers direct deposit for U.S. contractors in addition to check, PayPal or Payoneer. Contractors residing in other countries can access payments through local currency or U.S. dollar transfers, PayPal, Payoneer or Moneybookers. Elance deducts 8.75 percent from each client payment as a commission fee. The fee is reduced to 6.75 percent at volumes above $10,000. For contractors who use Elance’s tracking software to document their work-related activity, payment for actual hours worked is guaranteed.
