Gigbucks is a new online platform created for freelancers and anyone with talent of any kind to offer their services to people online who may need them, priced at anywhere between $5 and $50 per “gig.”
Sellers can post their gigs for free, and can post as many “gigs” as they wish. The more gigs you post, the more money you can potentially earn. According to Gigbucks.com, the average person can probably think of 3-5 different services they can offer on an open platform like this.
This open, freelance platform is very similar to Fiverr, except that sellers can price their work as much as $50, which opens the platform up to more complicated works of marketing, programming, writing, or whatever it is you may do.
Buyers search Gigbucks for services they need, and once they find a seller whose gig fits their need, they register a free account so they can purchase those services. Once the gig has been purchased, the seller must get to work.
After the work has been completed, the seller delivers it to the buyer. The buyer then has three days to review the work and accept it or reject it. Gigbucks says that buyers should never accept work they are dissatisfied with.
If they reject the seller’s work, the buyer must give them a legit explanation as to why. The seller then has two days to re-do their work and return it to the buyer. If they do not complete the work within two days, the contract is canceled.
All buyers will be asked for their feedback on a seller’s work, regardless of whether they accept or reject it. This feedback will be made publically available, so that new buyers know what they are getting when they contract with a seller.
Once the work is accepted, the seller will receive their payment either through PayPal or AlertPay, or they may choose to receive credits to their Gigbucks account.

You have to pull a tooth to get your money from GigBucks
Use Fiverr. You will get paid. Over 20 days and Gigbucks won't pay. It takes a minute to pay by PayPal. Just search and you will see other sellers complaining about the same thing. Use Fiverr!

I was a bit skeptical at first to pay someone to enhance the audience on my social media page. The only reason why I rated it 4 stars because I tried contacting the seller for reassurance but it took him forever to get back to me. So I started to get worried and then by day two or three I noticed the activity on my Facebook page.
So overall my experience with Gigbucks went well. I will def use them again.
Key things to keep in mind. Always double check the work before accepting it because once you do its out of their hands. If you don't like something let them know before you accept and they will re-do the job again.
