I got a gig from one of the company via email & interviews and they made me a good offer.
They want me to start this collaboration via
Elance and when I looked at the fees/charges on Elance I found
8.75% of the project fees to be on a higher side. I had a discussion with the company folks and they said they are open to other alternatives as well.
So, are there any other alternatives for this type of collaboration without involving any freelance websites and if not any alternative to Elance which are safe & has low charges.
