Types of projects: hourly and fixed price

Last Updated: Aug 15, 2019 04:41PM ART

When you post a project on Workana, you can choose to pay a fixed price or hire the professional on an hourly basis.


Fixed-price projects are best when the scope and structure of the work is well defined. The client and the professional agree on a price before starting to work. It is important to define specific goals before paying so that both parties have a clear idea of what is expected. As the work progresses, deliveries can be made that will mark the progress of the project.


On the other hand, if it is not clear what is expected of the project, if there may be sudden changes in direction or if the professional should spend a large part of his week/month on a project, then it is advisable to hire a professional in a more flexible way. In these cases it is ideal to hire the professional on an hourly basis. Both parties agree on an hourly rate and work begins with reports of hours charged directly to Workana. The client can accept or reject the report and has direct control over the work. You can also specify the authorized hours for the following weeks.


Whether you choose a fixed-price or hourly project, be sure to clearly define and document requirements and set goals to ensure success. 😉


For the time being, the objective of hiring within Workana does not include face-to-face work encounters, but only work that can be done remotely.


Remember that for both hourly and fixed-price projects you always have Workana's guarantee. The money is sent to the professional when you accept a delivery on fixed projects or when you approve hours on a project by the hour. 😉
