AppThemes HireBee is a freelance marketplace theme for WordPress. Employers post projects and freelancers start the bidding. You setup the pricing plans and take a cut of each project. It’s easy to monetize any niche by providing a crowdsourced project matchmaking service! Sites like Elance, Upwork, Freelancer, oDesk, and 99designs and perfect examples of this type of successful model.
Flexible, Powerful Pricing Plans
Pricing plans give you plenty of ways to generate income. Create multiple pricing plans. Assign plans to categories. Offer featured projects on home page and category pages. Your imagination will be the only limit to the kinds of plans you create.
Site owners can also monetize on freelancers proposals via “Credit Plans”. These are similar to pricing plans but they use a credit system that enables freelancers to send and/or feature proposals. Credit plans can be set to be sold as single or packs of credits.
If you use our Stripe gateway addon (comes free with the Club package) then you can use the escrow functionality for your Hirebee site. For each agreed project you can hold the money until work ends (via Stripe Connect). On completed projects, the money held in escrow minus any site commissions will be automatically transferred to the freelancer. On non completed projects, employers are automatically refunded. You can view the full setup details in our documentation here.
