We Shape Innovative Development


At EngineThemes, our customers are put at the center of every product development. Hence, we made this FreelanceEngine Theme innovation with a view to creating the best theme, which is also the simplest and easiest-to-use platform for users’ optimal interaction comfort.

Specifically, when posting a project, employers now do not have to wait for freelancers to apply for the job but can actively search for the most appropriate candidates and invite them to bid for the project. This Bidding Invitation function is efficient as it not only helps fitting the right employers and freelancers but also shortens time for a project to be completed.

What’s more? Our brand new extension – FrE Milestone – plays as an effective project tracker when allowing employer to add a road map of what needs to be done in his project. FrE Milestone is expected to better assist employer in project control, to set out specific steps for freelancer to follow easily, and to be useful for admin in case of dispute.

On the other hand, FrE Private Message – another new cool extension provides a prework private communicating space for employers and potential freelancers to form a general understanding of each other before working on the project. This function helps enhance trust; thus, increasing chance of selecting the most appropriate partner.

Another notable extension is Escrow Stripe – an add-on to our payment gateways. Besides our current popular gateways including Paypal, Paymill, SagePay, and PayUMoney, integrating Escrow Stripe into the theme increases the number of possible payment methods so that you can conveniently choose the most relevant ones.

We Craft A Simple But Practical Theme

In addition to new features mentioned above, there are surely other essential functions, all of which form the skeleton of FreelanceEngine theme.

    Hi guys,

    First of all, sorry for post this question here.

    I have attempted to email you guys a week ago without answer. I have tryed to join the forum, but only costumers can join there, and from the affiliate dashboard there is no contact field.

    I’m concern about my affiliate payout. Would like to know if and when it will be paid.

    I have made two more sales and have pass the $50. Today is the last day of payments and since i didn’t get any response from the email send to you, i’m trying to contact you guys from the comments.

    The email used to post this comment is the same of my affiliate account, so feel free to check it out and email me with your answer.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey guys,
    I’ve been hovering over the freelanceengine theme for few days but in order to get off to a good start with all the features and extension I wouldn’t want anything less than the Pro version.
    Having said that, the price is a bit too steep for me at this point. I read your new letter and there is a 25% coupon which expired in October. I like to know if I could still use this discount.

      Thanks for your interest in our product.

      It’s a pity that the discount code has expired. For the package, we can only offer you 10% discount more. Please kindly contact us via support@enginethemes.com if you’re interested in it.

    Hello Team,

    I’ve been working with FreelanceEngine theme for my client and now I’ve decided to buy it for my use. But I have one question regarding functionality is: Can we setup contest project with this theme? For example: Client will post project for Logo design, And freelancers will submit their design according to clients need. Then Client will decide which entry is good among all submitted and pay to winner of the contest. In-short like this site (https://99designs.com) .

    Please let me know. eagerly waiting for your reply.

      Hi Napster. Thanks for asking. The contest feature is not included in our roadmap for FreelanceEngine at the moment, and it may be more suitable for an extension than for the core theme. We haven’t got any plan for it yet, but we might think about one in the future. It’s a cool idea. 😉

        Hi Ahn Chau,
        This is a follow up to the contest feature request. I think this will increase your customer base. This is one great feature Freelancer.com to engage its users.

        Conduct a survey on this and you may found out that majority will vote in favour of this feature.

          Hi Nana,
          We still haven’t had any plan to implement this function yet, since it’s not in the direction of the business model of a freelance marketplace in the beginning.
          I guess it would complement the core system greatly and could be implemented as a extension for FreelanceEngine. However, our roadmap for FreelanceEngine still has many things in progress and we’r sorry we cannot give any promise for this feature at the moment.

            Thanks and I appreciate your friendly response. However, I will suggest that EngineThemes should create a Jobs & Pros platform that uses either the FreelanceEngine theme or the JobEngine theme (most preferably the FreelanceEngine theme). We can therefore use the platform to hire freelancers and developers for our theme customizations.
            WPMU uses this approach to engage its members. See for yourself https://premium.wpmudev.org/jobs/

            Could you suggest any extension for contest functionality? I’m still counting on you ! 😛 😀
