The Freelancer User Agreement has been through its first major update in five years, after lots of growth and changes with the site, its community and products.
One of the major changes is the direct incorporation of various policies into the User Agreement. In particular the Freelancer Code of Conduct, which outlines the standards we expect all members of the Freelancer community to uphold.
Please read through each carefully and make yourself aware of any changes that may affect you.

Bidding is the first step to making money on Freelancer.com, so why don't you make a bid today? Check out some of our top tips for writing a successful bid below.
Read the project description carefully. If the employer doesn't feel you understand exactly what needs to be done, you're not likely to be awarded the project.
Keep your bid clear, concise, and to the point. Remember that the Employer may have dozens or even hundreds of bids to consider. Bids with unnecessarily long descriptions may be skipped over which will mean some of your important information gets lost.
State your terms clearly. Using the project description as a guide, be as precise as possible in stating exactly what you'll provide, how much it will cost, and how long it will take to deliver.
Protect your work. Unless you're prepared to give your work away for free, any samples you provide should bear a watermark or other means of identification.
Don't oversell yourself. Self-confidence is a good thing, but over-the-top claims probably won't impress anyone. Being frank and honest about your skills is the best way to land the job and build a lasting relationship with the employer.
