“Never got paid”

Written on: 22/07/2014 by islenska (1 review written)

I had a very bad experience with PPH and with a client who lied to me and refused to pay me. In the end, PPH did not provide any protection whatsoever. Plus, the commissions charged are very high compared to what the website's offering… Read Full Review

“Do Not Register Your Private Details”

Written on: 24/06/2014 by ocMcCollum72 (1 review written)

My advice. Steer well clear of this site. Any personal details you register with them will be splashed all over the internet. If you commission work, you will across as a temp agent if your name is googled. Furthermore, your details will be locked in and even if you de-activate your account, your details will remain online. Dodgy site, and certainly don't entrust your money to them… Read Full Review

“Beware People Per Hour”

Written on: 16/06/2014 by rb1000 (1 review written)

It seems great. sell your services ,get work when you need it and PPH provide some form of corporate security image. The rates of pay are appalling. Slave labour. I proof read. I charge £40 per page on average and have lots of clients across the world. PPH ,at 707pm 16 june 2014 have job buyers offering £2 a page. I also write business plans. I would charge £100 per hour. PPH have buyers offering less than 10p!! I know I don't have to sell at this price but I need work and all PPH has done… Read Full Review

“Atrocious and Apalling are the nicest things I can say! ”

Written on: 21/04/2014 by CaitlynSilva496 (1 review written)

I've been using PPH (People Per Hour) as both a seller and buyer for quite a few years now. I was so amazed with the type of things on offer initially. However, as I started purchasing and selling. I started to see the huge cracks within the company. It is all one big sham to trick consumers out of their hard earned cash. I also use other freelancing sites and some of them offer verification of employees through ID checks etc. This offers much more transparency and accountability for the… Read Full Review

“Payment policy and customer service”

Written on: 02/04/2014

Not only does the bank transfer into thir "Wallet" takes too long, and this is the worst that can happen to you if you want to pay for a proposal deposit, but also that a phone customer service is non-existent, literally!!! AVOID, and you will have a peace of mind. Yes, you get a lot of proposals and the freelancers have everything to give, but to deal with PPH and waste a lot of energy and time is not worth it for an entrepreneur. Rather google and chose a local freelancer who you can deal… Read Full Review

“PPH, Great customer service and easy to use interface”

Written on: 26/03/2014 by CarltonB (1 review written)

Hello, my name is Carlton. I just recently started freelancing for only a few months. During this time, I have been using 5 freelance sites to find work. People per hour is by far the best site I have found. They make it easy to find work. Most freelance sites make you buy "profiles" to bid on jobs. This means that you can't bid on a marketing job one day and then on a sales job the next without paying a high monthly fee. People per hour lets you bid on any job without changing your profile… Read Full Review

“PeoplePerHour removing money from customer accounts”

Written on: 06/03/2014 by David996 (1 review written)

This represents the start of my endeavor to present an issue to the public relating to money handling by PeoplePerHour, which is the result of several days of correspondence. I think it is incredibly important that potential customers are made aware of what is going on at PeoplePerHour, and i will therefore avoid any conjecture, or emotive language, which might suggest that this is merely sour grapes over a dispute. These are the basic facts which are probably self explanatory, and i will be… Read Full Review

“DO NOT USE!!!!”

Written on: 23/01/2014

I have been using PPH for many years but it was only recently that my freelancing life really took off - I have become reliant on PPH and other platforms for my income. Recently I decided to give some of my hourlies a spruce up (what a mistake) the one that is my bread and butter has been 'failed' several times. I have now restored it back to its original state and its still ''failed' and sits annoyingly in my account as pending! So what to do? Ive emailed them three times asking what… Read Full Review

“Rip off central”

Written on: 31/12/2013 by gazza1234 (1 review written)

Really surprised this site is allowed to exist. Surely must be breaking some UK minimum wage structure laws! Its basically a meeting place for sculpturous, so-called business people to rip freelancers off. As a freelance graphic designer I joined to network. But the majority of job posts are for logo and stat designs for around £20!!!! I can only imagine most jobs are then awarded to freelancers based in developing countries. Overall, a portal for business people to use and abuse… Read Full Review

Free-Lance's Response to gazza1234's Review

Written on: 23/01/2014

I agree Ive been on there for 3 years and have recently needed to speak with someone there about my account - I've lost loads of potential clients because of them and no one ever replies to my emails!

A new website is on the horizon though and its comm free cherishedideas.

“DO NOT USE”

Written on: 19/12/2013

********DO NOT USE THIS COMPNAY******** I would advise anyone to use another service. After a freelancer not completing my project peopleperhour took it upon themselves to pay the freelancer without my consent! They did not allow me to write a review! Feel completely ripped off! I am in contact with both the trading standards and FCA as they are not complying with UK legislation. ********DO NOT USE THIS COMPNAY********… Read Full Review

Karnation8's Comment

Written on: 14/05/2014

I agree!!! I wrote a brief for a job and the work done was horrendous!!! The freelancer requested payment regardless and I disputed it. However PPH took it upon themselves to take my money even after I agreed to pay the freelancer 25% of the total for their time. The full amount was taken but I did not get my logo?

“Scammers are everywhere, but they need suckers to survive!”

Written on: 19/11/2013 by bothmad (1 review written)

Peopleperhour.com Rocks! Period! I can easily compile a kick-ass monograph on how PeoplePerHour changed this once-starving African writer's life for the better, but it may be too positive and life-affirming for most people on this website to handle. I have read through every complaint about PPH on this site and although I agree with some statements, most of it seems to be pithy ego battles between buyers and sellers. Sure, the fees and commissions are a bit steep and I abhor paying British… Read Full Review

“Only Freelance Site I Use!”

Written on: 23/10/2013 by janesmith1975 (36 reviews written)

I always wondered where Freelancers went to find their next job and when I decided to join the world of being your own boss I found it - freelance job sites. After signing up for as many as I could, I now only use one and that is People Per Hour. I find the site easy to navigate, quick to sort out any problems I have and the perfect way to find all sorts of jobs, big or small, one off or ongoing. I like the way you can build up a successful profile to attract new clients and the free… Read Full Review

“YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WHO YOU ARE WORKING WITH ON PPH ”

Written on: 18/09/2013 by dali86 (1 review written)

I've been blackmailed and verbally abused by a seller (BeOnline Solutions) on PPH and although the people per hour's resolution team has refunded my money back, they disabled me from leaving my feedback on the sellers wall, claiming it was their dispute policy! So, don't always trust the reviews on the freelancer's walls; they are filtered. The seller, has then taken my project (that I've sketched and worked hard for) and tried to sell it on his social media pages! I've reported this to PPH… Read Full Review

“you can't trust this company”

Written on: 02/09/2013

Service has very poor freelancers who are just out to get your money. As soon as you put money in escrow it's lost. If the seller does a poor job or does not complete the work peopleperhour will just side with the seller so they keep the fees. Sellers can mark work as completed with any amount you put in escrow regardless of the quality. PPH then just give the money to the seller. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY. Very small company which can't be trusted. If you want to use a freelance site you are… Read Full Review

Szebi's Comment

Written on: 05/10/2013

I completely agree, I am a Freelancer trying to get some work but PeoplePerHour seems to be the place where Indians, Pakistani, Malaysian people without any qualification find the way to earn money without working. They don't have an idea of their own, just copy some others work and supply you with rubbish for which you can be sued for infringing copyright.
The site is judged based on what it offers, and believe me: 90% of freelancers are not qualified, the remaining 10% will charge a fair price for their quality work and Clients will of course chose the cheap offer. Waste of money, you learn it the hard way. You won't get a Ferrari for the price of a Trabant if you know what I mean...
