How It Works

How do I post a project?

Once you’ve signed in and logged in to your account, click the “Projects” page on the top of the site and click the “Post A Project” drop down that appears. On this page you’ll be able to fill in and provide all the necessary details/information needed for freelancers to assess your project.

Before you’re allowed to post a project, you’ll need to go into your profile and link a valid card.

How long does it take before a writer applies for my project?

Anywhere between 0-3 hours! However, this may take longer if you post your project after 10pm, as there may be less writers available to immediately apply. In this case, check back in the morning! If a writer doesn’t apply to your project within 6 hours, please contact us at ‘contact@papertakers.com’ and we’ll handle it for you!

How do I hire a writer?

Allow some time for freelancers to find your project and apply to it. Once you’ve received some proposals from qualified freelancers, pick your choice and hire them. You can do this by¬†clicking the “Projects” page on the top of the site and selecting the “All Projects Posted” option. On this page you’ll be able to see the project you’ve posted. Click that project and scroll down to the very bottom in order to view all the freelancers who have applied to your project.

How do I contact and chat with my writer?

Click the “Projects” page on the top of the site and select the “All Projects Posted” option. On this page you’ll be able to see the project you’ve posted. After you’ve successfully hired a freelancer, click “Workspace” which can be seen as a purple button near the top. In this area, you’ll be able to send as many files as needed and directly communicate with your writer.

My freelancer successfully completed my project, how do I end the project?

Follow the instructions listed directly above to get to the “Workspace” area. Once you’re there, click the “Finish” button located near the top. Leave your review for the freelancer and you’re all done! Your freelancer will be paid by our system after.

My freelancer was bad or the work wasn’t what I wanted, how do I get my money back?

Follow the instructions directly above! Instead of clicking “Finish” choose “Close” instead and our team will look into the issue.
