Kathy and Chris,


You guys are right and we have shared your point about freelancers being able to bid below $5 with the team. They plan to change it within next couple of months.

If you guys are going to change minimum for fixed price then do it for $20.

Hi All,


I would like to clarify that currently minimum budget that clients can select for a fixed-price job post is $5. Freelancers can bid lower than $5.

It's a bit pointless having a minimum budget then allowing the freelancer to bid less than it.


The minimum budget for fixed price jobs should be increased anyway - $5 is far too low. I know we are in a global marketplace where $5 can be a relatively large amount but such low minimums, in my opinion, lower the quality and reputation of the platform.

I don't get all the fuss around this... 

Personally, I don't even look jobs without minimum $100 budget, thanks to filters...
