Gigs is free for all Experts Exchange members to post projects, receive bids, and communicate with freelancers. If a client accepts a freelancer's proposal, Experts Exchange may charge a Usage fee in addition to the amount agreed upon between the client and freelancer. This amount is paid immediately upon accepting the proposal. See the chart below for the fee breakdown based on your membership plan.

Once your proposal is accepted and the work is completed to the client's satisfaction, the project will be marked as accepted and the funds will be submitted to the freelancer's earnings.
