Legiit gigs have quickly become a favorite in the digital marketplace while consistently outranking its competition for the last 3 years. Legiit provides freelancers from over 50 countries an opportunity to sell their services.
This digital marketplace attracts some of the best freelancers out there while only taking a 10% seller fee. That’s half the amount its competitors charge. That being said, I’m on board.
There’s also a good vibe here, you feel part of an eager to help community compared to some other platforms where you feel the need to keep your guard up.
From what I’ve gathered, this company strives on good ethics, making both the seller and buyer happy. Most recently, Legiit had a 90% positive review rating and a steady flow of repeat business. I discovered very few negative feedbacks, those disputes between customers and sellers were handled professionally and fairly.
Some of the more desired gigs sought after buyers were, logo design, backlinks, video creation, social media management, and last but not least, copywriting.
What I like about Legiit so far is its simplistic design. From setting up your account, getting verified, designing gigs, navigating, and even joining their Facebook group, everything was as easy as 123.
My favorite feature is that there is no bidding involved. You simply design your Legiit gig, set your price, and walk away until someone buys.
Furthermore, Legiit seems a lot less overcrowded. With its laidback vibe and fewer freelancers, newbies have an opportunity to develop their reputation quicker than most digital marketplaces.
Their platform seems to flow effortlessly while ensuring security, safety and compliance standards. It also accepts payments via PayPal or Payoneer, keeping payments simple and safe.
Getting Paid for your Legiit gigs
The flow for receiving payouts on Legiit is as follows.
- The buyer places the order with the seller, funds are then held by Legiit.
- Once you complete the job, the customer has three days to leave a review. (delivered order).
- Once the customer leaves a review the order is complete and the funds will go into a five-day escrow.
- Once the 5-day escrow completes its full cycle, the funds you have earned will be added to your Legiit account. You can then transfer it to your Paypal or Payoneer account.
- Now, if the customer does NOT leave a review within 3 days the order will automatically become completed and your funds will also go into a 5-day escrow.
For those who run into issues or have questions, Legiit has a designated support portal powered by Freshdesk. It is simple to navigate, and they are quick to respond.
