    Guru.com - Android Developers Jobs

    Anyone here do freelance work?

    I am thinking of starting doing some freelance work and found this page they have:

    Android Developers, Android Programmers, Android Coders & Experts - Guru.com

    What do you think of Guru? Do you recommend them over any other freelance sites?

    Hi, this is Nicole from Rent a Coder. Rentacoder provides access to programming, writing, illustration, even andriod jobs. (You can get a sense of the broad scope of work available here: Browse Work).

    I'd like to point out a few differences between our service and Guru since those differences could influence your satisfaction and earnings.

    ------
    Fees:
    ------
    Guru charges 10% in fees (5% if you pay for upgraded membership). In addition, Guru also charges $29.95/quarter - $129.95/quarter in fees. Plus workers on Guru are charged a 2% fee for arbitration. They are also charged 2.5% if the buyer uses Pay Pal, or charged up to 4% if the buyer uses a credit card.

    Rent a Coder does not have any subscription fees or any other types of hidden fees. Our project fees are as low as 6% and we guarantee all types of work. In addition, we simply deduct a flat fee of $2 and PayPal charges you *nothing* in addition (no percentage). (Details are in our seller contract and payment info pages.)

    ------
    Bid Limits:
    ------
    Workers on Guru cannot place more than 10 bids a month unless they pay a subscription fee ($29.95-$99.95/quarter for 100 bids for a person, $38.94-$129.94/quarter for 100 bids for a company). With limited opportunities, you may not be successful with a service that limits your ability to bid.

    Rent a Coder offers free and unlimited bidding without subscription fees or any other types of hidden fees.

    ------
    Arbitration:
    ------
    Guru's mandatory pre-arbitration processes allow an abusive buyer to stall the start of arbitration (and prevent you from accessing your money) for weeks. For example, Guru allows buyers up to 20 days in mandatory mediation before the site will force them into arbitration. You also won't find any detailed rules on how Guru arbitrators make their decisions.

    At Rentacoder, 45% of our arbitrations are completed under a day. 75% under a week. We additionally publicize the detailed rules of how our arbitrators make their decisions.

    There are other differences as well. I invite everyone to compare the 7 major services through this link to learn even more: Why choose Rent A Coder (for workers)? Compare it to elance, guru, oDesk, freelancer and all it's competitors (Short version: Top 4 Differences Between oDesk and Rent A Coder (for Workers))

    If you have any questions, please let me know. You can also call in to talk to a facilitator 7 days a week, or email us (see Feedback / Contact).
