How Applying for a Gig Works

You've completed your profile, you've uploaded your ID & you've turned on your location services to see gigs in your area! What next

How to navigate applying for a gig!

1. Browse Gigs

Check out gigs available near you. As you scroll through the gigs you will see the type of gigs available, the business name, the time and date of the gig, the location, the Gig number (ID #) and the rates of pay.

You can use the filter in the top right corner to filter by industry, the gigs distance from your current location.

  • Click the gig card for more information on the gig. Here you can see the gig description: any requirements, location details, start time, finish time and rates of pay.
  • Once you’re ready to apply, just press the ‘Apply’ Button and the business will receive a notification that they've received applicants to their gig.
  • Each gig you apply for goes to the ‘My Gigs’ section.

Please note:

  • Gigs that have a blue 'Apply' button are open and available.
  • Gigs that have a 'Join Waitlist' button already have an applicant. We recommend joining the waitlist as it is common for gigs to become available again.

My Gigs

This section allows you to see the gigs you have applied for and the status of each application.

Here's what those statuses updates mean-

In Review - this means the gig is still open and nobody has been accepted by the business yet.

Picked for Gig - You will receive a notification when you are accepted. Ensure to read the important details carefully ahead of your gig.

On Waitlist - this means that someone else has been accepted for the gig. However, you may be contacted if the gig opens up again. If you don't want to be on the waiting list, please remove your application.

Once you have completed a gig, it is time to apply for payment. Go to the gig and press 'Done'.

Payment Processing- This means the gig has been completed, but the Business hasn't executed the payment yet. Once executed, it will not appear here anymore and it will appear on the "Payments" section

3. Payments

This section allows you to see the payment status for each of your gigs. When the payment is processed you will receive an invoice to your email address and status of the gig will change to ‘Paid’.

What each of the statuses mean at this stage-

  • Pending: The payment was executed by the Business and is being automatically prepared for transfer to your bank account.
  • On the way: The payment is being transferred to your bank account. The ETA (Expected Time of Arrival) for that payment is now displayed.
  • Paid: The payment has been successfully transferred into your bank account.

Important: All Payments are executed by the Business you worked with. Please note that payments through Stripe take up to 5 working days to reach a bank account. Businesses who pay using Revolut for Business can expect to see payments reach freelancers in one working day (for regular bank accounts) or instantly (for freelancers who have Revolut registered in their payment settings).For further details on how payments work with Gigable, please see our blog post here
