Free allows you to post a job (you can't see job applications until you upgrade, but you can see how many people applied), use TimeProof, and bookmark workers.
There's a good reason we don't offer a free trial.
You can only interview workers once you've paid for an account.
The short - none.
The medium - this is an overseas sub-contractor. You don't 1099 them. You don't report their wages. You don't pay unemployment insurance. You don't do withholding. You don't have to deal with taxes (please consult an accountant!)
The more detailed and longer explanation.
- We don't take a cut of worker salaries
- We don't mark up worker salaries
- We don't get in between your communication with your worker
- We don't force you to pay your workers through us
- Upwork encourages short-term, temporary work. We encourage long-term permanent work. Businesses tend to succeed better without 100% turnover.
Pay will vary based on skill set and experience. Every position entails a different salary range.
You can get a good idea from our Comprehensive guide to VA salaries in the Philippines.
Here's help determining VA salaries.
No, you don't have to keep it. There is no time requirement. No contracts.
When you're done recruiting, you don't have to keep your subscription. You can cancel and still use TimeProof.
Of course...if you're Premium the worker coaching service might be worth it!
If you use a credit card to pay for your subscription, click the billing link on your my account page, then the cancel link next to your subscription.
If you are using Paypal, login to your Paypal account, click on any of the payments to OnlineJobs.ph, and click the cancel subscription link.
Or...just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org...we'll be happy to cancel it for you.
If you just want a single payment guaranteed not to rebill, simply create a subscription and then immediately cancel the subscription (or have us do it for you). You'll still have upgraded access for the time that you bought.
Well, we can't guarantee it (except we do!), but with half a million worker profiles, there's a lot of talent in our database.
We rarely find an employer who can't find a good fit for their company. Usually it's the employer who wants someone who can do everything that leaves dissatisfied. That's not you...right?
Plus, we offer a 100% money back guarantee. If you don't find a great fit, just let us know.
No, all workers on the site are individual workers that register their own accounts.
OnlineJobs.ph is an open resume and job posting board. You are communicating, interviewing, hiring and paying the workers directly.
We just provide the means of you two coming together.
(We do have 21 full-time workers from the Philippines who work for and on OnlineJobs.ph)
A cultural trait of the Philippines is honesty. Obviously not everyone is honest, so you would trust the workers just like you would with a local worker. At first, have them do non-sensitive tasks until you build a relationship of trust, and then later you can give them more access. You can also check out TimeProof.
It took us over a year before we realized we could trust workers from the Philippines. Today we trust new hires from day 1.
In the Philippines all employees get a bonus once a year of one months pay - the "13th month".
This bonus is paid in December, but is NOT a Christmas bonus. If you want to give a Christmas bonus, that's separate.
Do you have to pay this? No.
Should you? Yes! Absolutely!
Your workers will expect it. Actually, they need it. It's part of their budgeting for normal life's expenses.
All account types can create job posts. Employers on the free account have their job posts go through an approval process. Free accounts can't contact job applicants until they upgrade to a paid plan. Free and Pro accounts are limited to 3 active job posts at a time, Premium can have 10.
If you can't see your job post on the site and you have a free account, its most likely going through the moderation process. Otherwise, its most likely not on the first search page, but a subsequent one. Also, Free job posts expire after 14 days.
Once a week you can edit your job post and have the job post appear towards the top of the search results. You can't "boost" your job.
Each job post has its own reply-to email address that you can set.
You can unsubscribe from receiving job applications from being sent to your email address by clicking the 'unsubscribe' link in your email.
Deactivating or deleting a job post is done on your My Account page.
Unfortunately, Filipino VAs have gained this bad reputation due to the actions of a few individuals. In most cases, this doesn’t happen. Filipino online workers are incredibly loyal and reliable. But if you’re still worried about it, there are things you can ensure that you have a good working relationship with your VA and they don’t simply vanish.
