Freelancer can sign up for free, create multiple job profiles with required skills, and upload a portfolio he/she is experienced/interested in. For each of the job profiles, receive matching project notifications. Submit proposals/bids to interesting projects based on availability and experience the project is expecting. Once the bid/proposal is submitted, the freelancer and the client can discuss with each other about the project requirements over chat for free and resubmit the proposal if needed. The amount mentioned in the project is an estimate only.

If a Client/Agency chooses to award a protected project, and if the freelancer accepts, Vulpith charges you a small project fee relative to the value of the selected bid. If you are subsequently paid more than the original bid amount, we will also charge the project fee on any overage payments.

  • For fixed price protected projects, a fee of up to 5% or Infinity (whichever is greater) is levied at the time a project that has been awarded by Client/Agency and has been accepted by the freelancer. If he freelancer is subsequently paid more than the original bid amount Vulpith will also charge the project fee on any overage payments.
  • For hourly protected projects, a fee of 5% is levied on each payment as it is made by the client to the freelancer.

Cancellation Charges & Refunds :

Zero Protection (Non-Escrow) Project : No cancellation Fee

Escrow (+ Data) Protected Project :

  • Before hiring : No cancellation Fee
  • After hiring :
    • If both Client & You agree to cancel, full amount will be refunded to client
    • If either party doesn't agree and a dispute is raised, Vulpith will charge 5% of project amount to the dispute loser. If the account balance has sufficient funds then it will be deducted automatically, otherwise the looser has to pay the accrued amount within 7 days. If it remains unpaid, it will be deducted from future earnings in the next 30 days.. If the said amount remains pending on lapse of 30 days, the loser's account will be suspended
    • Delays by freelancer: Delay penalty will be adjusted against the milestone. This will be credited to the clients account
    • In case if the delays of deliverables are caused by the clients delays and client raises such false delay claims, a freelancer has the right to raise a dispute with evidence. If proven, the parked funds will be released to the freelance (after deducting the Vulpith Service fee) with a warning to the client

Arbitration Fee :

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.

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 the client will be asked to pay Infinity . On successful project delivery, You as a Freelancer/Agency gets Infinity after deducting 5% as Vulpith Service Fee. Our service fee is including applicable GST.
