from 113 reviews Review It


PeoplePerHour is a website that connects small businesses with freelance workers from across the internet to help them complete small projects quickly and affordably.

According to, thousands of small businesses use them to hire remote, freelance workers to complete small projects, or just to work for a few hours a week. They claim this allows small businesses to stay flexible.

PeoplePerHour says this benefits small businesses because they can create virtual teams of people across the country – or even internationally – “without the red tape, cost, and bureaucracy of traditional employment.”

They have seven main categories of projects: IT/Programming, Marketing/Sales, Design, Admin/Secretarial, Writing/Translation, Accounting/Legal, or Other. Each category is broken into smaller, more specific categories so workers can something that works for them.

Both businesses and workers can register at for free. The website does take a small fee from workers, however, when they successfully book a job.

  • Not a good way to freelance.

    Fully of time wasters who want things done for less than national minimum wage and want to waste your time as well in the bidding process. Go out into the real world and get some real clients. It is a better use of your time and will get you a liveable rate per hour.

    Bring on a legal review of freelance sites for breaching national minimum wage. They need to be put out of their misery!!!!

    Bring legal challenges against the tyre kickers who frequent these sites as well. They should be putting their money into the economy, not trying to rip off workers by paying peanuts!!!!
  • is a cess-pool where a real designer is trolled by unverified buyer for her skype address. dont go there they are bad.
  • People Per Hour is a big scam site. I have test it, I have post a "hourlie", they didn't aprove my job. I have contact the support team, I have do all the changes asked by them, but my "hourlie" still wasn't approved. The worst part is that they have took an amount a money to promote my 'hourlie" from my account. After several days they send me a e-mail, telling that my "hourlie" was viewed 13th times. How can be this possible, if my job was not alive, approved?

    So, PPH = BIG SCAM.
  • A great website with many talented people. The platform has simple functionality with a high-quality pool of freelancers and great customer support. Also, The expertise is excellent. I always choose Level 5 so I know that I'm getting the best of the best. The response time, quality and professionalism is superb! I have an incredible pool of experts to choose from. I definitely would refer a friend People per Hour.

    Because PPH is the best. The buyers are great and the site is one that is exceptional for freelancers!
  • Hello,

    We got scammed by a freelancer on People Per Hour. They did not deliver the project more than two months after the deadline, and caused us huge losses and distress. Their coding was so bad, it broke everything. Now we have to find someone else to fix these issues, and People Per Hour are not helping to get a refund for the funds we've paid. They are happy to take their commission, but when there are issues - you are left high and dry. They seem to take on coders with fake portfolios and references, and they need to take some responsibility for that.

    This has been the most frustrating experience ever.
  • Brilliant service , quick accurate efficient and excellent price. For me I have used this site for various projects and most have which have worked out well for me. So happy everyone I've used so far have been super helpful and so fast

    Good customer support, quick verefication of payments documents, quick money transfer to payment account. Hopefully in the future the site will maintain its high level!
  • I choose 10 because I in fact already did recommend it to friends. I like working on the platform, it gives me both the opportunity but also the trust to work with complete strangers.

    If I can suggest some improvements,

    1. I still cannot get the android app on my phone. I would like to be able to access everything with an application, it might also be possible to use the website but I would like to have direct notifications. If I search for the app right now, it's just saying that it's not available in my country.

    2. When I hand in proposals, I'm often told that my price would be too low. It might be possible, that some people intentionally quote prices that are way too high in the beginning.

    My prices are usually calculated from my normal fee, only giving small discounts. From the amount of jobs I am actually getting I can be quite sure that my prices are not too low.
    • Alisan, I am also an user, and just a little tip. The website is responsive, so may go a ahead and use it with no app on your mobile as I do.

  • Almost everytime I've used PPH it's been a positive and professional experience. Good system to find new clients. Not perfect, but a very good system.
  • very good, always works and get the right results. We had plenty of people to pick from that wanted to do the work. Once we picked, (the hardest part) The service was quick, efficient, and we were very pleased with the results. No extra charges like other freelance websites.
  • Stay away from this website, their freelancers are fake and liars. I had a very bad experience with a freelancer who has showed me his portfolio using other people websites claiming it was his work, I have chosed him based on these protfolios, which he later admitted that it wasn't his work. I have ended up with a complete I raised a dispute against him and my case has never been investigated. I would highly recommend to stay away from this website
    • Hey Harry, I am not a lair, I am doing projects for buyers on that site. If you do not make general statements, I may agree that some freelancers, should be filtered. In many cases, I apply for jobs I am sure I can do and looking at other applicants profiles (they are public), and reading their descriptions, seems they may not complete the job, because the job relates to other field and need other knolledge. As you see, that problem also prevents me getting jobs, that I would otherwise win. I also must admit my prices are higher compared to others, but I am working with licensed products and that cannot be otherwise. For example if someone tells you that he can make say word template for 7 pounds, he is a lair, it is not possible. Or possible if the sellers uses not purchased windows or office packs, so my conclusion is, that the platform needs improvement and the buyers should be careful when choosing someone.
