Disadvantages of Freelancer

 

One downside to this site is you only can submit 8 applications before having to pay a membership fee. Then there’s a project fee that takes 3% to 5% of your commission.

 

A lot of spam works, you can see that these jobs are so cheap or the client doesn't have any rating and experience

 

Take a fee or commission before starting the project. Sometimes clients don't pay for a project but freelancer took your commission that's why you can lose money at the time
