FreelanceVets is free to sign up, post a project, receive bids from Freelancers, review the Freelancer’s portfolio and discuss the project requirements. If you choose to award the project, and the Freelancer accepts, we charge you a project fee relative to the value of the selected bid, as a service fee. The fee for fixed price projects is 10% or $5.00 USD, whichever is greater, and 10% for hourly projects.
In the Military we live by a “Code of Honor.” That being said, we ask that you treat FreelanceVets with the same honor and respect that we will treat you with. In other words, we expect that you will not work in any way to circumvent the relationship directly in order to avoid the relationship/processing fees from FreelanceVets. We reserve the right to remove clients and Freelancers from our Network who violate our trust for the sole purpose of avoiding fees. We thank you for your attention and agreement to this.

When ordering a Freelancer’s service, the Client must provide the initial Milestone Payment. The payment is protected and only released when the Client is 100% happy with the work that has been delivered.
