Freelancer.com Work Process



Should you hire me through Freelancer.com, this is how the process usually works:

  • I will ask you what features you are looking for. Make sure you put together a list of things that need to be included in the app. (User accounts, in-app purchases, push notifications, etc.) Once all features are agreed on, I ask that nothing extra will be added to the first version of the app. Any additional features requested after work has begun will cause delays, and I may request extra payment.
  • I will ask if you have designs for the app. If you have hired a designer to put together the look and feel of the app, I will ask to see them and then build the app according to the designs. If not, don’t worry. I can offer design services, but do keep in mind that I am not a professional designer. Once a design is provided and/or agreed on, I ask that no changes are made to it. Any changes to a design after coding has begun will cause delays, and I may request extra payment.

After agreeing on the details of the project, if I decide that I would like to work with you, we will proceed as follows:

  • I will do my best to inform you of the implications of putting an app on the App Store. I will talk to you about the costs involved in getting a license/membership, and I can walk you through the process.
  • I will talk to you about any ongoing costs that may be involved in your project. Some features, such as push notifications and user accounts may require third party services that I have no control over.
  • We will talk about the timeline and budget. In all of my bids, I suggest an initial timeline and budget. But it is impossible to be accurate without knowing all of the details. We will work together to brainstorm some logical payment milestones.
  • I will get to work! I will deliver updates to you periodically, requesting payment for my work along the way. I can deliver updates via beta versions of the app through TestFlight, or I can deliver code samples. I am flexible on the manner in which deliverables are sent.
  • Once all work has been completed, I will ask you to verify that everything has been completed as per our initial agreement. If you are not initially satisfied, I will ask that you provide a ONE-TIME complete, detailed list of bugs, mistakes, unintended problems, or inaccuracies within a week of receiving the work. I will do my very best to address everything on the list. After a week, I will request that any further work be completed as a separate project.
