Crowdsourcing.co.za is a Professional Crowdsourcing community for South African Entrepreneurs, Freelancers, Skilled individuals and Professionals.
Crowdsourcing.co.za is a dedicated team of Professionals and Entrepreneurs that have identified the difficulties in the South African market, where permanent employment positions have declined and employment is at an all-time low. In South Africa, we have talented individuals and this is where Crowdsourcing.co.za fills the gap. To harness the full potential of what our talent has to offer the world as well as South African business. We have created a platform for large, small and entrepreneurial businesses based both internationally and locally to find the desired skilled individual to fulfill requirements with the confidence and guaranteed settlement through an *ESCROW system.
All projects posted by bosses will have set budgets and freelancers can bid on the project. Prior to any project commencing, funds are paid into the Escrow account which is administered by a third party. This ensures that both boss and freelancer have security of delivery and payment. Bosses can hire freelancers at their desired rate or set budget, this will also follow the same process and funds paid into the Escrow system. This feature ensures buyer and seller participate in the requirement and upon both parties being satisfied, project is completed and funds are released.
Anyone at any time can create an account to post jobs and of course look for freelance jobs, and all relevant details and qualifications will be monitored and *verified regularly.
The industries we cater for include:

How does it work?
For a business:
A Business or Buyer needs to register an account and select HIRE in the registration section.
The boss posts a project and freelancers bid on this project. Then the bosschooses the most suitable freelancer to work on the project by accepting a bid.
For a freelancer:
A Freelancer, professional, entrepreneur or skilled individual needs to register an account and select WORK in the registration section.
The freelancer then builds the required profile, includes personal information, Payfast account details, lists his/her skills and creates a portfolio.
After a bid acceptance:
Both the boss & the freelancer open the workspace for further discussion regarding the project.
The boss will review this project when the freelancer is finished. If the boss is satisfied with this project, he clicks the FINISH button and writes a review for the freelancer. If not, he can send a dispute to admin where it will be further investigated. Once a project is complete, and the bossis satisfied, the funds are released.
