The client can sign up for free, post unlimited projects, receive proposals/bids for each project or request for proposal for each project, from Freelancers/Agencies, review their proposal, job profile and the portfolio. The amount mentioned in the project is an estimate only. While hiring, a client can mention the Awarded amount(Fixed/Hourly) and once the Freelancer/Agency accepts the project, the project is good to go.
If the client chooses to award the project, and the Freelancer accepts, Vulpith does not charge any fee.
Opt-out fee is zero in Vulpith. Still, a client can use Vulpith for free for non-protected projects.
A fee is applicable when a client is loading funds against a milestone for the awarded project, so that freelancer/agency can start working on that milestone. This fee is a typical payment gateway charge which we incur on the client 's behalf.

At the time of ordering a service like Cloud workspace, Clients/Agencies must provide funds equivalent to the total service price. Once the order is placed and charges are paid, add-ons services cannot be canceled or transferred and charges paid for add-ons are non-refundable.
The arbitration fee for a milestone dispute is Infinity or 5 %, whichever is greater.
Our dispute resolution system is designed to allow both parties to resolve issues regarding milestone payments amongst themselves without arbitration.
After 4 days of a dispute being filed(or 7 days if the dispute is filed by the freelancer) either party may elect to move the dispute to paid arbitration. The other party will then have a further 4 days to agree to pay this fee and for both parties to submit any final evidence. If the other party fails to pay within time, they will lose the dispute.
The arbitration fee will then be refunded to the winner of the dispute.
When you are taking services as a Client OR earning income as a Freelancer/Agency, your local government taxes may apply, depending on your region. You are responsible to pay your taxes as per the law of the land.
As mentioned earlier in the Project Fee & Opt-out Fee sections, Vulpith does not charge any fee to the Client. However, Vulpith only passes on payment processing fee (charged by third party payment gateways) called as funds loading fee, on deposit of funds. These charges are directly incurred on your Debit/Credit card, Net Banking and any other means of doing transactions that we provide and have nothing to do with the platform. However, Vulpith continuously works with relevant financial institutions to bring down the processing fee to as low as possible.
For example if Client has to park Infinity against a milestone, and the payment gateway charge is 2.5% then he/she will be asked to pay 2.5% on 1025 which is around Infinity . On successful project delivery, Freelancer/Agency gets Infinity after deducting 10% as Vulpith Service Fee. Our service fee is including applicable GST.
Vulpith does not charge any withdrawal fee for the Freelancer/Agency to withdraw from funds from their balance. However, Vulpith only passes on any fee incurred to process the payment (charged by third party payment gateways) as a withdrawal fee.
Our default currency is INR. When the member withdraws funds to his/her bank account in their local currency, the financial institutions may impose a currency conversion charge, which should be borne by the Member.
The fees and charges summarized on this page are governed by the terms of the Vulpith Member/User Agreement and related site policies. The User Agreement includes other important terms and should be read in full.
* The fee mentioned here may change at any point of time and will be updated on the website.
Vulpith account balance is nothing but your earnings, refunds, referral bonuses, etc.., which you can withdraw at any point of time to your bank account. The minimum withdrawal limit is INR 1000 or $ 25.
