Malt's objective is not only to facilitate and protect the employment of freelancers (secure payment with the escrow account, insurance AXA pro, reputation system ...), it is especially to value the freelancers!
We are a platform with a local logic that allows us to avoid offshore competition and to keep prices down.
Nevertheless, we have observed very low prices among freelancers (50 €, 75 € or even 25€/day) which do not allow to live correctly from one's job in France. In order to avoid a race to the bottom in prices, to avoid beginner freelancers to sell themselves at a loss, but also to maintain the credibility of the platform and its entire community, we decided to set a minimum threshold on the average daily rate posted by profiles in France.
🇫🇷 It is therefore impossible to post a price below €125 if you are located in France. Please note that this is a minimum rate.
🇬🇧 It is therefore impossible to post a price below £250 if you are located in the United Kingdom. Please note that this is a minimum rate.
We started from the net amount received by a salaried employee at the SMIC in France. Then on the basis of several interviews, we calculated the Average Daily Rate that a freelance must invoice to obtain this same salary while taking into account
To generate a net SMIC when you are an auto-entrepreneur, you need to invoice 22 367€ in 179 days, i.e. 124.96€.
