How It Works: Freelancer
1. Create your unique profile
Sign up and create your unique freelance profile that will set you apart.
The more complete your profile is, the more employers you will attract.
2. Apply for projects you like
ZebraSkill is a great place to find new customers. Browse projects thanks to categories.
Make an offer to the projects you want to tackle and describe why you’re the one for the job. Only the employer can see your application.
3. Work with peace of mind
You will never work for free. ZebraSkill secures payment at the beginning of the project.
Keep the employer in the loop on your progress or ask any questions you may have through the workspace.
Depending on the length of the project, you may request intermediate payments.
4. Mission accomplished
You will be notified when the employer marks the project as finished.
ZebraSkill takes care of the billing. You can be paid in less than a week and start focusing on your next project.
5. Fee structure
The base fee is 10%. However, if you were to work for the same client, ZebraSkill charges a sliding fee based on the freelancer's lifetime billings with a specific client. In other words, the more business you have with a client, the less fees you’ll pay.
The fees work like this:
- 10% for the first CHF 5’000 billed with the same client
- 8% for billings with the same client between CHF 5’000.01 and CHF 10’000
- 5% for lifetime billings with the same client that exceed CHF 10’000
We encourage you to work multiple times with the same client via ZebraSkill and gain visibility for other projects and expand your clients’ base.
