A Freelancer is a self-employed Independent Contractor who engages in short-term work or ‘Gigs’ on the Gigable App.
A Freelancer will generally be selected based upon the quality of their Profile so make sure it’s a good one!  Profile is key.

For example, a Restaurant may need a Delivery Driver to deliver Pizzas.  A Freelancer can apply for that Gig and if he or she is chosen and completes the work, they will be paid by that Restaurant within the Gigable app, using either Stripe or Revolut, our online payments partners.
