There are many categories of cross-border freelance jobs, such as image editing, content writing, SEO, etc. 

There are actually quite a few opportunities.

At the same time, there are many sub-industries and sub-fields on the Internet, and not every job category has a corresponding website, so we also need to pay attention to the general cross-border freelance website.

If what you’re looking for is a cross-border freelancing website with various positions, here are some of the largest cross-border freelancing websites for you.


Upwork is the world’s largest cross-border freelance platform, with as many as 12 million registered cross-border freelancers and 5 million registered customers.

 There are as many as 3 million freelance jobs posted on Upwork each year, worth about $1 billion.

Fees: Upwork is free to apply, but after finding a job through Upwork, the platform will charge a service fee from the fees paid by each customer.

 The service fees drawn by the Upwork platform include:

  • 20% of the first $500 paid by the customer
  • 10% of the customer’s lifetime payment, approximately between $500 and $10,000
  • If the customer pays more than 10,000 US dollars, the platform will extract 5% of your income for life


 Upwork is the largest comprehensive cross-border freelance work in the world, which is unmatched by other cross-border freelance websites.

Cons: Because Upwork is the largest gathering of freelancers in the world, bidding is fierce.

 Moreover, many cross-border freelancers come from countries and regions with relatively low consumption levels, and their fees are lower, but the level is comparable.


Flex in FlexJobs means “zero work”, so this site also focuses on flexible freelance jobs. 

It includes remote work (full-time and part-time), flexible on-site work, and many freelance jobs.

Fees: FlexJobs is a paid membership site, mainly for freelancers.

 The general fee is $14.95 per month, but you can reduce the monthly payment by paying a one-time payment of 3 months ($29.95) or a year ($49.95).


 All jobs on FlexJobs are vetted, so the jobs on this site are legal and regular.

Cons: Not all jobs on FlexJobs are cross-border freelance jobs, so not every position is right for you.


Craigslist is similar to 58 in China, and it is also a platform for posting cross-border freelance jobs.

 This website belongs to the category of classified advertisement publishing.

 Because of its wide coverage and low fees for posting jobs, it has gradually become one of the most popular websites for employers.

Fees: Totally free for cross-border freelancers! Employers charge a small fee when they post jobs. 

But if you search for jobs and apply for jobs on this site, it’s completely free.


In the US, because each city has a Craigslist subsite, you can easily search for jobs in your city. 

You can also switch to job postings in other U.S. cities if you want to improve your chances of success.

Disadvantages: This website is really too similar to 58.com in China.

 Many of the jobs are junk jobs and junk ads.

 Therefore, before sharing personal information, confirming a job, or starting a job, be sure to find ways to ensure that the position is legitimate.


Fiverr is a professional freelancing platform connecting cross-border freelancers and employers.

 Professional service classification is more detailed, probably in more than 250 different categories.

 No matter what type of freelance job you’re looking for, you’ll find it on this platform.

Paid: You can post skills on this site for free.

 When it comes to specific odd jobs, a 20% service fee must be paid to the platform for every job completed and every payment received from the employer.

Advantages: Fiverr has a wide variety of cross-border freelance jobs, including recruiting voice actors, speechwriters, data entry specialists, and more. 

Because of the diversity of talent, it recruits, the platform has also attracted many employers.

 If you can’t find an employer that offers freelance work, consider Fiverr.

Cons: Fiverr comes from the “Five” (5) in its name, which means freelancers start at $5. As such, freelancers don’t have a high starting price on this site.

 Moreover, it is also more difficult to increase the price of your services on this platform.


Freelancer is another well-known global cross-border freelance mall website and has some of the world’s well-known customers, such as Microsoft, Boeing and Intel, and other business giants.

Fees: The down payment system on Freelancer is a bit more complicated. 

The fees for ordinary freelancers generally include the following three sections:

  • 10% referral fee for all applications
  • If awarded a bidding prize, a 10% bonus will also be drawn
  • After winning the bidding award and undertaking a project from the same employer, a 20% fee will be charged

The site also charges a $10 monthly maintenance fee if your account has been inactive for more than 6 months.


 This site has a lot of cross-border freelance categories, including a wide variety of jobs, with about 1350 different job categories.


 The fee structure is confusing and may continue to rise over time
