Initially, the site will take a cut of your earnings, but the amount will diminish over time.

- FlexJobs: FlexJobs is designed to connect freelancers and those keen on remote working with short-term and long-term projects across a range of sectors. There is a fee for continued use, but it’s very easy to sign up and get started and all the adverts are vetted to ensure jobs are legitimate.
