Yes, except some contract from big company, nearly all other projects are aiming to spend low amount and have really quality job. I feel that the platform should introduce some regulation about too low budget offers, not only the possibility to notify them.
Hoping in some improvment that could help freelancers and agency to earn an amount that correspond to the value provided.
Yeah, I personally think Upwork shouldn't even post un verified jobs, some of these fake jobs are from developers, when they get stock with a problem, they post on upwork as a job and ask the freelancer to do a demo app, and later they will ask you to explain the demo and when they get your solution, they stop replying to your messages. I just recently joined Upwork and I have never gotten a job. one client just did that to me. Moreover verifying the payment is not enough and upwork should even give the client a limited time to must have choosen a freelencer to do the job without which charges will be levied on the money. Because it is inexplicable that, given the large number of freelancers on upwork someone will post a job that can only take four hours to be done and in one weeks time, he still haven't gotten someone to do it. I think that way, only serious client will come to that platform. Thanks.
Since early 2020 we've calculated that it's cheaper, more efficient, and better quality control to hire In-House developer team rather than outsourcing the work.
