Hello everyone, It's so nice being on oDesk, recently i am having problem with applying. Don't know if there's any update or anything else, but i can't apply under $3 or $2. oDesk is demanding an exact match of $3.33 or $2.22 , it's not accepting the terms of $2.09 or $3.88 like this. Anybody here care enough to answer??

Hi Shabbir, You can't apply below a certain amount due to a minimum wage test. We are constantly testing different levers to increase the efficiency of the oDesk marketplace to ensure clients are finding the freelancers they need and freelancers are getting the jobs that they are best suited for. We have several tests running to understand what impact a minimum wage would have on the marketplace. As this is a complex area, we expect to run these tests in the marketplace for a significant time period. However we are not currently implementing a universal minimum wage. Hope this helps!
