General FAQs

Currently, Gigable is available in the Republic of Ireland, England & Wales.

A Freelancer is a self-employed Independent Contractor who engages in short-term work or ‘Gigs’ on the Gigable App.  A Freelancer will generally be selected based upon the quality of their Profile so make sure it’s a good one!  Profile is key.

For example, a Restaurant may need a Delivery Driver to deliver Pizzas.  A Freelancer can apply for that Gig and if he or she is chosen and completes the work, they will be paid by that Restaurant within the Gigable app, using either Stripe or Revolut, our online payments partners.

If a business needs someone to help them out for say a busy night or weekend, they can post a Gig on the app.  This allows them to view and select the best applicant based upon their Profile.  Once the gig is over, payment is made within the Gigable app, using Stripe or Revolut, our online payments partners.

A Gig is an agreement for short-term work between two independent users on the platform.

Gigable is free to download.  If you are a Freelancer performing gigs or a Business posting Gigs on the platform, Gigable will charge a % fee of the Gigs overall value. These fees will cover all the costs of processing your payments securely using Stripe (www.stripe.com) or Revolut www.revolut.com
