As of today I will no longer be using PPH as a platform for getting work, as frankly I'm sick of hostile the process actually is to both buyers and sellers, specifically because of how fees are hidden from both.
When I set a price for a proposal, I have no idea what I'm really charging my buyer, because when they actually move to pay me they're suddenly charged an extra 10%, then MY earnings are savaged for an absurd 20%!
PPH has created a platform that is utterly hostile towards sellers who want to do lots of small jobs, or who work mostly with a handful of clients but sometimes want to work for others, as we're suddenly gouged for doing… exactly what the entire point of a platform like this is supposed to be.
I'm sick of being gouged to the point that the only people making money on this platform are PPH themselves, and I will not be returning until something drastically changes in PPH's utterly broken fees structure and if I charge a buyer an amount, that's what I expect them to have to pay because that is what my proposal is FOR.
I am very disappointed by this platform.
