Clients

Upwork

Alexa Rank300

Fixed or hourly projects. Largest client listing. Lots of low-paid competition. Horrible Support. Guaranteed payment for hourly 20%/10%/5% depending on engagement length.
Why do people hate Upwork?

Freelancer

Much like upwork but their pricing is more around paying per listing/application.

Larger profile section for freelancers. Payment on completion with "resolution process" if client is unhappy.

Emphasis on shorter projects. Spec work also.

Turing

Alexa Rank20,000
