Freelancer is a traditional freelance platform that operates all over the world. There are a lot of jobs available on Freelancer daily. Many freelancers working on Freelancer earns a lot of income from many potential clients.

Freelancer is a great platform for Indians to operate. According to my practical experience, there are more than 40% Indians available on Freelancer. Moreover, the employees found there are also mostly Indians. Freelancer allows their users to deal in their own currency which is one of the greatest benefits. The payment method also best suits the Indians as it allows different payment transfer methods that are easily available in India.

2. Truelancer

Truelancer is an Indian-based freelance platform that also operates on the same principle of the traditional freelance marketplace. It is also quite similar to Freelancer as it has the same features just like Freelancer.

If you want to deal with Indian national you should surely move to Truelancer. There are many foreign clients available as well on Truelancer. Truelancer has a lot of earning potential due to the number of projects posted daily.

Truelancer allows its freelancers to bid for the security deposit as well. This feature is only seen on Truelancer which makes it quite unique from other freelance platforms.

3.      Fiverr

Fiverr is one of the best untraditional freelance market places that allow its users to provide services, and offer rates according to their services. It is another freelance marketplace that has a lot of Indian freelancers available. Fiverr have many foreign clients available that bring a lot of earnings to freelancers.

Getting your first order on Fiverr is quite challenging due to a lot of competition. But when you do get your first order you are often seen bringing wonders to your freelancing career. Also, the algorithm of Fiverr is quite challenging that can cause you problems at any time.

But you can use the buyer request option to increase the worth of your profile. Moreover, the Fiverr Pro option is a great feature for professionals to get their profiles to look more unique. Fiverr Pro option also brings a lot of earning as well.

You will see many top-rated and level two sellers with Indian Nationality on Fiverr. This proves this marketplace as one of the best for Indians.

4.       Upwork

Upwork is one of the most ancient freelance marketplaces which were previously known as elance. It covers the biggest share in the world of Freelancing. The greatest number of clients looking for help from freelancers switch to Upwork for their work. Moreover, Upwork has a great reputation for providing freelance services to some of the biggest brands in the world.

On Upwork, a great number of Indians are present selling their services and earning a good handsome income. Not just for Indians… but for freelancers all over the world Upwork provides great value to freelancers.

But you should only start working on Upwork if you are highly professional in your particular skill. If you are not… you should wait and work on other freelance marketplaces to gain hands-on experience.

5.       Guru

If you are looking for long-term, and highly paid freelance jobs you must opt for Guru. It is one of the greatest freelance platforms with clients from all over the world. So, if you think freelance earnings are unreliable, and not continuous… you should give Guru a try.

Although there are not a lot of Indians available on Guru, but still consider it as one of the greatest for Indians. The reason is lesser competition as compared to other freelance marketplaces.

Guru charges 4.5$ for verifying an ID… and the free membership plan of Guru gives 30 free bid to get started. However, I suggest you go with the basic membership plan as it will provide more exposure and will bring much more opportunities.


India is the second-highest-paid country after the US as far as freelance earning is concerned. Indians really create an impact on most of the freelance marketplace. But they should choose wisely in order to do more better, and earn a lot more because a good decision can bring wonders.

There are many freelance platforms are based in India, but you should not choose all of them as most of them are at their initial stage and do not have many clients. Obviously, to earn more you need to make sure that you are working on a freelance marketplace that has some quality clients.
