Guru is a freelancer platform that hosts professionals and groups offering services in eight primary categories. It does require a bit of time to learn the platform though, so Guru is best-suited for long-term freelancers and employers. One good thing about Guru is that employers do not have to pay a fee to post their projects, nor to receive proposals from freelancers. Instead, there is a small transaction fee charged to process payments. Employers may be happy to learn that Guru also offers multiple payment methods beyond credit cards and electronic payment gateways, such as cheques and wire transfers.
