The Freelancer Accounts

Go to https://evotechpacific.com.au/market/ , and click on the Apply as Freelancer button.

Fill out the details and once your profile has been created, fill out the details in your profile.

In order to get paid for your services, you will need to activate an account with Stripe – simply click on the “Connect with Stripe” to either register or add your existing Stripe details.  The funds paid to you, less our commission, will be paid into your nominated bank account via Stripe.

Within your Profile, you can add images to your portfolio, as well as include any work experience, certification and education.  Remember, the more info you have on your profile, the more attractive your design profile will be to prospective employers.

An “Employer” is the person posting the brief and paying for the design.

The “Freelancer” is the designer/manufacturing jeweller who will be completing the design and/or manufacturing the finished article.  Employers will receive bids from Freelancers.

The Marketplace has been designed for Designers and Jewellers who wish to generate a new income stream, and utilise their existing talents and skills.  It’s free to sign up, and you are guaranteed to get paid for the work you do as long as the original brief by the employer is followed.

It’s a very simple procedure – an Employer will upload a brief containing a description and images of what they require.  This brief will then be sent to every designer who has registered with the Evotech Marketplace.

Designers can then check the brief and provide a quote to obtain the job.  The Employer will receive notification that a quote has made against their job, and then can view your quote, along with your profile, gallery and experience, and decide as to whom they would like to commission for the job.

Jobs won’t necessarily go to the lowest quote – rather they will likely be given to the designer with the best experience for that particular job – so make sure your galleries are full of images showing your skill-set!

In order to maintain and expand the Marketplace, a Service Fee of 12.5% is charged per successful job, which is the amount of the offer accepted by the Employer.

The Service Fee will be deducted from the Freelancer’s payment upon Fund release from the Employer.  We suggest Freelancers be mindful of this Service Fee and account for the fee when placing a bid for the design.

The Employer pays at the time they have selected the Freelancer they wish to work with.  The funds are placed into Escrow, which ensures the funds are protected for both parties.  An escrow fee of 2.9% will be applied against funds paid by the employer.

When the job has been completed the Freelancer is required to request payment by selecting the ‘Request payment’ button on the task page. The Employer will be prompted to release payment to the Freelancer by selecting the ‘Release funds’ button.

Once the job has been completed and the Employer has released your funds, the funds will be transferred into your nominated account – please allow 1-3 days for the funds to reach your designated bank account.

The Evotech Pacific Marketplace is committed to helping retailers and jewellers help each other. As you’re probably aware, cancelling jobs once assigned doesn’t promote the best environment for other people in the Marketplace Community. We understand that circumstances can change and sometimes the job can’t go ahead and you may need to cancel.

Before making this decision, we strongly encourage you to see if there’s another way to get this job completed.

If you absolutely must continue with the cancellation, here are some important things to consider:

  •        The impact to your reputation as a reliable Marketplace member
  •        Cancellations will negatively impact your profile within the Marketplace as a reliable, trustworthy individual. This is reflected in your Completion Rate. A low Completion Rate means you’re less likely to receive quality offers on jobs you post or may make it more difficult to get selected to complete a task that has competing offers.

As an employer, just remember – cheaper isn’t always better.  We advise you base your decision to commission a job to a designer according to various factors such as experience, gallery images of previous work designed and not solely based on price.
