Freelancer.com has announced that they are acquiring competing platform Scriptlance.
The company said in a statement:
Scriptlance members will immediately notice that outsourcing work and winning projects is easier and faster than ever on Freelancer.com. Employers will find a much deeper pool of world-class talent, with over 4 million skilled freelancers ready to complete your projects. Also, with over 2.3 million projects completed to date in over 450 skill categories, the opportunities available to freelancers are now greater than ever before!
Freelancer had this to say about existing member base of their newly acquired entity:
All Scriptlance members will be automatically transitioned to the Freelancer.com platform. This process will commence immediately to minimize disruption to members and active projects. You can rest assured that it’s business as usual as your user information and projects are moved across to Freelancer.com, including: account balances, user profiles, messages, milestone payments, active projects and past projects. Members who have accounts on both Scriptlance and Freelancer.com, will have their accounts merged into their existing Freelancer.com account. This will allow members to continue completing work without interruption.
There are also some free deals for the members of Scriptlance. Check the details here.
