When reviewing freelance gig platforms, the very first thing you consider is total cost, and if the platform hides the cost then move on. The large gig platforms charge as high as 27-28% of every dollar. In today’s internet, this is online robbery.
When the investment world went to the discounted platform, not only did they take market share from their more expensive alternatives, but they opened up new markets that greatly expanded the total investment market– especially in the total number of participants.

First you need to understand gig platforms are a different category from freelance jobs. The whole concept, structure and solutions are uniquely different. So today we are only reviewing gig platforms.

For example the leading platform charges sellers 20%, then often adds on 5% more to the buyers, and then possibly an additional 2-3% for service fees. The total costs come in as high as 27-28%! That leaves only 73 cents of every dollar for the gig provider doing the actual work. That is just gut-wrenchingly high.
