On-site work on PPH changes – get yourself available!

Hello Sellers,

First of all we would like to apologize for an issue we had with certain postcodes yesterday. This is now fixed and if you had problem updating your Profile you can try again now. If you haven’t heard about this new amazing feature please have a read below, it is very important if you don’t want to miss out on the increasing demand for on-site work on PPH!

Based on insights we got from Buyers and Sellers, it is preferred or completely necessary that some projects are done in person in a specific location, whilst this need is inadequately covered by PeoplePerHour at the moment. Most Buyers prefer to work with a Seller at their location e.g. their offices, even if work could also be done remotely e.g. web design, web development, copywriting etc. Furthermore there are projects that can only be done on-site like photography, certain types of admin and bookkeeping tasks as well as IT support services.

For us at PPH this is a reason to put a lot more effort into optimizing on-site projects and make them even more prominent on the website. To do this we will need to know more about your availability and location so that Buyers are able to discover relevant Sellers near them.

Bottomline, if you are interested in completing on-site work in the future it is necessary to update your Profile as follows:

  • Login to PPH and go to the Edit Profile Page from the top menu
  • Check that the “LOCATION (CITY)” field is up to date
  • Change “NOTIFY ME ABOUT” field from “REMOTE WORK ONLY” to “REMOTE AS WELL AS ON-SITE WORK” so that you can send Proposals to on-site Jobs
  • Put the zip code or postcode of your location
  • Indicate how far you are willing to travel in miles (even if your Proposal includes travel compensation)

Complete the steps >>

Hello,
the postcode is not working,
and there is no way it is wrong.

Just received an email about this and been amused if not shocked by the lack of understanding of how freelancers work. I particularly take umbrage at the assertion that “there are projects that can only be done on-site like photography,” Im a photographer – I shoot my clients’ products etc in my studio. My site you see, not on their board room table which would be their site. PPH again seems not to understand the freelance world, and the variety therein. If on site jobs are to become the norm with PPH then theres little point in freelancers using the… Read more »

I have always managed to work on-site and off-site for my PPH clients dependent on their requirements and have managed to make this work quite successfully with discussions via the workstream. I appreciate the update however on the occasion where it is needed as it stops people in the wrong locations wasting time discussing projects that wouldn’t work logistically…

it will be great if peopleperhour separate picture profile and cover and about , from phone and zip code part in profile ( maybe put them in step-2 of profile )

so the users could save other parts even if there is problem with validate zip code
