    How it works for Clients

  offers an online marketplace where businesses can connect with independent bilingual speakers and professionals with Chinese knowledge across a wide range of sectors to get specific tasks and jobs done. It is the only global English-Chinese bilingual freelancing job site.

    Post your project here


    • Post your project (FREE) or select a Price Plan* to display your job prominently in the “Featured” area, or to get a freelancer to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA).
    • Describe your project or task as clearly as possible.
    • Assign a budget** if you can. A sensible budget makes your job more appealing and helps attract bids.
    • Submit your project for approval. A straightforward posting can be approved fairly quickly. Should clarification be required, we will contact you.

    *Fees for additional services (Featured or NDA) are required at this stage so you will be directed to PayPal for payment as part of the posting process.
    ** Please note that any budget will include our service fee.


    Hire the best freelancer


    • Click on the bidding Crayfish freelancers’ names to see their ratings, experience, portfolios and more. You can also invite your favourite freelancers to submit bids for a new project.
    • Evaluate each bid, taking into account each freelancer’s qualifications, language skills, timeline and overall cost. Remember the cheapest bid may not always be the best.
    • Clarify specific questions by messaging the bidding freelancer in private before making up your mind.
    • Authorise your selected freelancer to start the project by accepting his/her bid.
    • Transfer the project fee into Crayfish’s PayPal holding account or bank account (if bank transfer used). Your money (including Crayfish’s fee) will be held there securely and the freelancer will commence your project. Payment will only be released to the freelancer once you are satisfied with the work.

    Work efficiently, effectively


    • Open the project’s WorkSpace to communicate with the freelancer securely and confidentially.
    • Send or receive files in a secure environment. These can be draft or final deliverables of work, or digital assets such as images and specifications.
    • Be responsive and share feedback in real time. Watch out for notification emails and messages from the freelancer. Reply as soon as possible to any queries to avoid delay to the work.

    Pay – simple, secure and hassle free


    • Release the payment to your selected freelancer when you are happy with the work.
    • It’s simple and secure, with no extra fees. Crayfish makes paying freelancers straightforward. Even better, we take care of the processing fee charged by PayPal.
    • Global payments. We deliver payments to freelancers in China, Europe, North America and all other countries where PayPal operates so you do not need to worry about foreign exchanges.
    • Invoicing. Invoices will be sent to you upon payment. You can also access your history in your project’s WorkSpace.
    • No hidden charges.  We retain an all-inclusive fee*(25% of the project amount) for providing the service. There are no additional charges to you.

    *This includes our commission and VAT as well as PayPal’s processing fee.
