Welcome to our Xplace Review!
We have experience of more than 200-250 make money online opportunities and today we are going to take a look at one of the most interesting ones.
I have seen lots of scams on the Internet and services that are not very interesting. Xplace seems to be different and it provides you to earn a good income online. It also provides you a possibility to outsource your projects to high-quality freelancers.

What Is XPlace?
Xplace is a big marketplace for freelancers and small business owners who need to get some work done. If you have heard of Fiverr or Upwork, Xplace is somehow similar. You can use it for two purposes:
1.Earn money as a freelancer.
2.Find qualified freelancers to do your projects (=outsource)
I think that the idea of Xplace is great. It helps people all around the world earn some money while working from home, beach, cafe or literally anywhere. At the same time, it gives small business owners a possibility to find easily people who would be interested in doing the work for him.
Here is an introduction video made by Xplace team which explains in a simple way how their service works. I recommend taking a look because it helps you understand their website better and what kind of benefit it can provide for you.
(A thumbnail is a bit strange but don’t let it distract you. The video is great!)
If you are wondering, why some of the videos on their YouTube channel are in Hebrew, it’s because they have an office in Israel and in Ukraine even though Xplace is based in Los Angeles.
What Can You Buy in Xplace?
Xplace has more than 500 categories for different kind of jobs and projects. Here are some of the categories just for example:
- Sound & Music
- Lawyers & Legal Service
- Design & Graphics
- Software & Programming
- Writing & Editing
- And much, much more
It’s amazing how much Internet helps to connect people all around the world. I found, for example, my last job through the Internet. I left my CV on a platform contacted me then. I worked for the company for +7 months but recently I quit because I want to concentrate more on building a successful online business.
I had also left my profile on another platform already a long time ago and recently a Finnish bank (at least I guess so because of their subjects) contacted me because they wanted me to write blog posts on their website to boost Google rankings.
I have also ordered a tens if not hundreds of articles from freelance writers through different platforms including HireWriters. Even the sky is not a limit on Xplace and other freelance marketplaces.
How Much Can You Earn in Xplace as a Freelancer?
This naturally depends on you and your skills. If you know how to do something very well, people are willing to pay you more. If you know, for example, how to write great articles, you can let me know and I can hire to write posts for my websites. (Here are more resources on outsourcing content writing.)
Anyway, I will take here a few examples which illustrate how Xplace works and what kind of income you could expect. Let’s have a look what kind of projects people have recently ordered in Xplace.
In the top of this picture, you can see the details of this project.

- Budget is up to $500.
- Bidding ends in 32 days and 8 hours.
- Freelancers have bid from $17 up to $70 per hour or $28-1,929 per project.
This information will give you some hint what kind of bid should you give. You can leave your own bid on the right. Then you have an opportunity to write bid comments and add attachments that could boost your possibilities to get applied (for example CV or some examples that you can really create a travel website).
Let’s have a look at another example.
You can see that this guy needs only 150-200 word articles. The average amount of bid is $39 per 250 words. In my opinion, that’s really good in this kind of freelancer website. I could write 250 words in 20-30 minutes (depending on the subject) which means that my hourly rate would be about $100/hour in this project.
Okay, let’s admit that probably I need to review my article very carefully so it can take some time but still this proves us a point how good money it’s possible to earn on Xplace.
What Is the Price of Xplace?
As I mentioned above, freelancers need to pay a monthly fee in order to work through Xplace. There are currently 3 different plans $28/month, $75/3 months or $232/year. You can see the details in the picture below (the screenshot was taken 12.6.2017 so the system has calculated dates according to it.
I would like to hear what do you think about prices and the fact that you need to pay something in order to work through Xplace. Please leave a comment below to let me know your opinion.
A great thing in Xplace is that you don’t need to pay any fees for accomplishing jobs because you pay this monthly fee. It allows you to earn bigger percentage than it would be possible in other freelance marketplaces.
Pros & Cons
- You can find freelancers from hundreds of different categories
- Finding high-quality and motivated employees/freelancers becomes easier
- The service was already founded in 2004 so they have 13 years of experience in the industry
- You are able to earn good salary as a freelancer
- Membership fee filters some unqualified freelancers
- It’s not so big marketplace like Fiverr or Upwrok
Conclusion – Does Xplace Work?
Yes, Xplace works for its purpose to connect freelancers and small business owners. I always say that this kind of services is wonderful. Imagine that 20 years ago people could have only dreamed of this kind of platforms like Xplace.
When it comes to work, there are always two choices in life. You can either build your own business or build someone else’s business. I have quit my day job as a Key Account Manager because I want to build my own online business in order to have a full financial and time freedom.
I offer only seldom freelance writer services for other people because I prefer building my own business further.
If you are interested in building your own online business as well in order to have a freedom to live and work wherever you want, whenever you want, I recommend taking a closer look at Wealthy Affiliate.
They offer a step-by-step training which explains how anyone can build a successful online business. I know many total beginners who managed to create a full-time income stream online. Some of them make even +$10,000/month online.
It doesn’t cost anything to get started in WA. Instead, you will be given 20 interactive video lessons and 2 high-quality websites as a gift for joining. You don’t need to have a credit card or anything. Just 10 seconds and you are in.
Of course, I recommend their premium services as well but they are not obligatory if you don’t want to pay anything.

Have you used XPlace or similar websites? What kind of experiences did you have?
Am a freelance designer/music producer willing to try out xplace (the one month subscription as a trial), but haven’t quite decided. Was hoping to get more satisfactory insight to help me decide on whether it’s worth trying, considering there are other similar free sites. Can anyone give me an idea of what to expect (especially in terms of number of clients and payments) as a rookie freelancer (design/music services) on xplace. Probably sharing some reviews or testimonials from current or former xplace freelancers might help.
Thanks for your comment/question. Xplace is much smaller marketplace than for example Fiverr or Upwork. However, the most gigs that I see on Xplace are providing a good income for a freelancer. I think you’ll get the best answer of just trying it out. 🙂 First-hand experience gives the best answer because people’s experience on Xplace naturally differs a lot.
By the way, if you want to move from a freelancer to earning passive income online, feel free to check out my latest Ultimate Make Money Online Guide and follow the steps that I laid out.
I’ve checked Xplace and it looks legit to me. Xplace looks a lot more like Fiverr and Upwork. They are constantly growing and expanding.
Yes, it’s a legitimate site.
I am on a lot of freelancer sites, I have made good money on some sites and never made any money on some sites. I have never heard of the name xplace. If this is a freelancer site that does not cost money to join and does not cost money to bid on jobs or list your services/products, I might join this.
Yes, you can join for free.
But I was talking with you Vinaya regarding your websites, I would give the same advice when it comes to the freelancing sites as well.
Don’t spread yourself too thin. Focus on one site to succeed and make a good income there. You’ll most likely make a better income than trying 10 sites at the same time.
So XPlace is another platform like Upwork, which I use frequently. I am so happy to find an alternative, because I would begin to feel like I was relying heavily on Upwork for freelancing, and was in search of a more advanced and integrated platform.
This review was all I needed to read, and at 91/100 I’m sold! Thank you for keeping us in the loop!
I would love to hear your experiences of Upwork. I have used more Fiverr and HireWriters for outsourcing content writing but I try regularly other services as well to know which works the best.
I think that many of those platform work well. Then it’s just a matter of preference which one you want to use.
Wow! I read the whole piece till the end and it really picks my fancy despite coming at a monthly or yearly fee.
I am a good content writer and I do adequate research on all my written articles which are 100% genuine but I have been unable to find a platform to exchange my craft for cash. I just got registered on Fiverr but xplace seems to offer better earning opportunities for quality content writing which I have a lot to offer.
Please, your advice is most needed and would be waiting to read a reply from you. Thanks.
I think both Xplace and Fiverr can be good ways to earn money as a freelance writer. I have sometimes used Fiverr to earn some extra cash even though normally I prefer writing for my own business.
One great place to earn money as a writer is also HireWriters. I have bought there 16-19 articles already and I wil be buying more in the future.
My recommendation is that sign up to all these services, use them all and then you can decide which one suits the best for you.
However, My #1 recommendation is to use your writing skills to build your own online business through Wealthy Affiliate. It can make you 10-15 times more money even though the rewards don’t come so quickly.
This is a good review, and Xplace seems like a really good idea. Some people (like me) don’t like the idea of Fiverr – when you pay peanuts, you get monkeys, so if you want quality content it’s unlikely you’ll get it from Fiverr.
But Xplace gives you a better platform in order to either earn more money than Fiverr to produce good content. Or if you’re looking for people to write content for you, you can pay a little more and get good content.
good points there. I think Fiverr is also a great platform but many times you need to spend some time to find the good freelancers. When you find a good one, you can buy several projects from the same guy.
The main purpose of this kind of websites is to connect people and I think they work very well for that purpose. Xplace offers some extra features than Fiverr but it’s not as big yet.
