Question of the month: Why do all freelancer profiles have to have an hourly rate?
The fixed hourly rate improves the comparability of offers and saves both clients and freelancers from time-consuming price negotiations. The hourly rate is therefore binding at Australia Freelance Market, and is indicated on the profile as a net amount and without travel costs/expenses. Freelancers are bound to this hourly rate towards their clients.
If freelancers have different hourly rates for different tasks, the highest hourly rate must be stated in the profile. Constellations with lower hourly rates can be described in the profile, for example, "Hourly rate 20% lower for assignments 100 hours".
