Sending a Chat Request to Freelancers
Are you looking to hire a freelancer directly but can’t find the “Hire Me” button in their profile? Don’t fret! We have a new feature which allows you to communicate with the freelancer first before hiring them for a project.
Payment verified clients will see the “Request Quote” button in place of “Hire Me” in the freelancer’s profile, if they are actively bidding on projects. This feature allows you to send a chat request so you can discuss the project with the freelancer before diving into the actual project.
The Request Quote button will only show if you do not have a chat with the freelancer from a previous project, otherwise, the direct hire option will be shown to you.
Chat request/Request quote is a great way for you to communicate with the freelancer about your project requirements; they can send you a Quote as soon as they are ready to start working on a project with you. And, once you receive a Quote, carefully review it before acceptance, ensuring that both parties are in agreement and ready to proceed with the project.
