Profile: rates

I've entered my rates but I'm still receiving some jobs offering a rate under my minimum. Why is this?


Not all jobs conform to the format of "[X] per [word|hour|total] in [currency]". Some jobs specify lines instead of words, ongoing or in-house jobs often have different pricing requirements, and so on. To accomodate these different situations, outsourcers are given the choice of entering pricing for the job in the standard format, or using a free-form text box to enter the pricing. Jobs that use the free-form format cannot be checked for rates, so you will receive notification for them, even if they are below your set minimum.

Note that in the future, outsourcers will have more incentive to enter pricing in the standard format, and whether standard pricing is entered or not will influence who receives the notification.
