Communicating with Buyers
Communicating with buyers is the most important part for winning a project on GetAFreelancer website. You should send a private message to the buyer (explaining about your expertise and lowest amount of money you will be charging etc) as soon as you place your bid on a project. You will have very rare chance of winning a project without communicating with a buyer.
Once you have placed bid and communicated with some of project buyers, wait for their response. You will have great chance of winning a project as soon as you receive any reply from any of buyer that you placed bid for. Once you receive a positive response from any of buyer, work according to his/her requirements.

Benefits of gold membership
You will not be paying any fee on winning a project in case of gold membership. But you have to pay 10% of total project value after completion to GAF if you don’t have a gold membership. Suppose you finished a project of $200 as a gold member, all of $200 will go in your pocket. But if you had finished this project as non-gold you will be getting $180 in your packet and the rest of $20 will go into GetAFreelancer website account (10% of total project). Cost of gold membership is $12 per month only.
The mode of payment that you can use to receive money via GetAFreelancer website is Paypal and MoneyBookers. I would suggest you to use Paypal if your country is available in Paypal supporting list otherwise use MoneyBookers service to receive your earned money via GAF.
Note – Never send your contact details like your email id, phone numbers etc in your personal emails to buyers. GetAFreelancer website will suspend your account the moment they sense you sent your personal contact details to the buyers on GAF. Avoid using ‘Message Board’ to communicate with the buyers and use ‘PM’ to communicate with them.
