Applying For a Gig - How it Works


You must complete your profile and upload your ID to apply for Gigs

Navigating The App:

There are 3 tabs in the ‘Gigs’ section of the app:

1. Available

Here you can see the gigs available near you. As you scroll through the gigs you will see the type of work advertised, the business name, the time and data, the location and the Gig number (ID #), 

You can use the filter in the top right corner to select your preferred time frame search distance and work industry.

For further details on each gig, you can click on it and see additional information. Here you can see what the gig entails, requirements, location details, start time, finish time and the rate of pay.

Once you’re ready to apply, just press the ‘Apply’ Button and the business will receive a notification. It is now up to the business to decide if they want to accept you or another freelancer.

Each gig you apply for goes to the ‘My Gigs’ section.

My Gigs

This section allows you to see the gigs you have applied for and the status of each application. There are three statuses to look out for when you have applied for a gig: 

Open – this means the gig is still open and nobody has been accepted by the business yet

Confirmed – this means you have been accepted for the gig. You will receive a notification when you are accepted. Press on the gig to find out important details such as the date, time and location of the gig. Please ensure you read these details carefully. Once you have completed a gig, it is time to apply for payment. Go to the gig and press ‘Done’. 

Waiting list – this means that someone else has been accepted for the gig. However, you may be contacted if the gig opens up again. If you don’t want to be on the waiting list, please remove your application 

Completed – This means the gig has been marked as done by you, but the Business hasn’t executed the payment yet. Once executed, it will not appear here anymore and it will appear on the “Payments” section


3. Payments

This section allows you to see the payment status for each of your gigs. 

When the payment is processed you will receive an invoice to your email address and status of the gig will change to ‘Paid’.

Payment status:

  • Pending: The payment was executed by the Business and is being automatically prepared for transfer to your bank account.
  • On the way: The payment is being transferred to your bank account. The ETA (Expected Time of Arrival) for that payment is now displayed.
  • Paid: The payment has been successfully transferred into your bank account.

Important: All Payments are executed by the Business you worked with.

Please note that payments through Stripe take up to 5 working days to reach a bank account. Businesses who pay using Revolut for Business can expect to see payments reach freelancers in one working day (for regular bank accounts) or instantly (for freelancers who have Revolut registered in their payment settings).

Now What?

Once you complete the gig, you will have an opportunity to rate the business owner. Be fair here, as they will also be rating you on your performance.
