How it works

Getting started - For Persons Hiring Talent
- If looking for a service provider, when signing up to the Ilandgigs platform, you must select "I want to hire".
- You would then select a subscription and post the gig you need done.
- The gig will be approved by our team and you will then receive bids or quotations for the gig.

Our platform allows users to create milestones for each gig or project. The milestone represents a stage of the project or timeframe that is agreed upon by the project owner and professional.When a hirer accepts a bid, the service provider is informed and the both parties will agree on a method of payment and the required milestones for the gig. These milestones allow providers to be paid at agreed upon stages of the gig in a timely fashion while providing some security to hiring persons that the work paid for will be delivered.We advise that gigs be managed using the platform in order for our team to provide support in any payment disputes.
