The toptal has an entirely different process of individually screening each freelancer. toptal.com only offers the project about screening. It helps to cut-off low prices and low-quality bids.
Designhill is also a web design, graphic design, and logo design work-place. In this workplace, the designers have less competition because signing up as designers is not very native. This means a less competitive work-place so designers can get paid higher. They quote more than 50000 happy clients on their home page.
Hubstaff has no fee structure as other work-places have fees for both clients and freelancers. Hubstaff.com is entirely free for both clients and freelancers.
