Following Step 4: Choosing a Freelancer, you’ve picked out a talented freelancer, and confirmed that they are ready, willing and capable. You are ready to hire. It's time to make sure there’s a copy of your agreed terms in your shared messages, and select “hire”.

To secure your freelancer, you will need to pay a deposit via card or by PayPal. This upfront payment will be a percentage of the total cost of hiring, the rest is paid on approval of the final files. Once the deposit is paid, work on your job can begin!

Payment & Fees:

Posting a job on Twine is free, the commission we take is 20% on top of what is agreed with the freelancer.

For example: You have found a great freelancer through Twine and they have agreed to deliver your job for $500 with a 50% deposit upfront.

Freelancer quotation = $500

Initial payment (50% deposit) = $250 

Final payment (remaining 50% + Twine fee of 20%)  = $350

Total job cost: $600


Project Management:

You’ve picked a freelancer, hashed out the details, and paid the deposit; now you can sit back and let the freelancer get to work.

Managing your job on Twine couldn’t be easier, click into your “Manage Jobs” tab to view the progress. You’ll be able to see a breakdown of the costs, and view draft files shared by the freelancer.

Occasionally, like with any job, there can be unforeseen circumstances. This could be that, following your feedback on draft files, the freelancer is going to need more time to complete the job. It could be that you’re so happy with the draft files, that you’re wanting to extend the job. For situations such as these, we allow ad hoc payments for payments further to the amount initially agreed. Find this option under the “Manage Jobs” tab.

Once the final files are uploaded, you’ll need to pay the remaining balance, and approve the files. It will then be the role of the Twine team to close off the job.
