I used to work on the website and was quite happy - getting projects and finding new customers. Suddenly it came the tendency to fight over peanuts - customers declining my bids with the words - there is someone on the other side of the earth that will make it 10 times cheaper. And it looks that PPH really enjoy this, especially now with new interface, because they are still getting their fees. They invented these so called "hourlies" where everyone is telling how cheaper and quicker than everyone else will make your business cards, your brand identity, your website, etc. What if you want quality service that takes more than 2 hours work ...

Stay well clear of PPH, they are going nowhere. Having been a freelancer with them for a few months and won a couple of contracts I found them to be extremely inefficient and very poorly organised. I have been taken off the site on two occasions without so much as a by your leave, no explanation, nothing!! It appears that as soon as you request money from the client everything grinds to a halt, irrespective of the fact that the client had deposited funds. There are much better freelance sites out there with much lower fees and a lot less hassle getting paid.If PPH continue to treat their customers in this way then they will not survive and do not deserve to. My advice would be to use a more professional organisation with a solid background.

This awful site makes a mug out of freelancers. Features include poor rates, vague jobs, and no chance of compensation in the case of non-payment. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

I have tried this site and am very disappointed I am tending to the view that although a good idea it is a waste of time and money. Firstly , as others have said you get some vague sort of assignment posted and I get the feeling that usually the 'buyers' or business does not actually know what they want. As clare has posted there is no way that you can be sure you will get paid as the project will 'evolve' from the original as posted on P.P.H. so the job never ends. There is no way P.P.H. can make buyers pay up. Because of the mass of badly described / vague jobs posted bidders might have to purchase 100 additional credits a month in the hope that ...

The reviews at the bottom of the page must be marketing people for PPH because this site is the worst Freelance site I have used. The site has been built very poorly, customer service is a joke. You do work and don't get paid, they trick you into buying "credits" - waste of time! DO NOT USE!
