Bidding allows you to choose the most effective provider to work on your project, according to the project cost he/she offers, estimated project completion time and professional skills.
Bidding can be open - service providers can see each other's bids, and sealed - providers can only see their own bids.
To start a bidding on your project, sign in to My Office, open your posted project in "Manage My Projects" section and click "Start Bidding".
Fill in the form: choose bidding type, project preliminary budget (leave empty if uncertain), minimal bid amount (minimal project budget), bidding duration and the maximum number of bids accepted from one provider.
You can follow the bidding progress on your project in My Office -> Manage My Projects.
In the process of bidding you can communicate with providers using the Project Message Board. To do this sign in to My Office -> Manage My Projects, open the current project and click "View messages". Project Message Board is available for viewing and posting messages to all registered users until you award your project to a service provider. After the project has been awarded only you and the selected service provider can view and post messages to the Project Message Board.
