We need you because you are a skilled proofreader, editor, or writer. EditFast
takes pride in the quality of the work we do and in the speed of our editors.
We want the best!
This is a freelance opportunity. We cannot guarantee that there will be work
available, but if you have the qualifications EditFast's clients are looking
for, and if you are patient, there may be projects for you in the future. You
should be aware, however, that EditFast has no obligation to provide work for
you now or at any time in the future. Completing the registration process and
passing the EditFast review does not necessarily mean you will receive projects.
It simply means you are eligible to receive projects and your Web page is available
for EditFast's clients to view and perhaps choose you as their editor. If you
are selected for a project by a client or by the EditFast administration you
will be notified and that project will be directed to you.
Only those editors whose Web pages have been activated are eligible to receive
New Project Notifications. For those who are not
successful, all information connected to your email address will be deleted,
and notification of this will be sent (This can take anywhere from one day to
EditFast provides a free service to freelance editors. There are promotional
tools provided to help the activated editors promote their free Web pages and
their skills and talents as editors. When new projects are received from clients
by the EditFast administration these projects will be sent out to the best qualified
editor, taking into consideration the needs of the client and the needs of the
document. Our goal is to provide fast, quality service to our clients and send
work to as many editors as possible. However, at no time is EditFast under
any obligation to provide work to any editor. You are a freelancer.
You are free to search for opportunities wherever they might be. EditFast is
one of those opportunities.
To begin, all potential editors must register and complete the following
Web Page Builder
Next, you must wait until EditFast reviews your submitted information and your
If successful, you will be notified that your Web page and profile have
been "Activated." (This can take anywhere from one day to two
Only those editors whose Web pages have been Activated are eligible
to receive New Project Notifications.
For those who are not successful, all profile and related information
will be deleted and notification of this will be sent. (This can take
anywhere from one day to two weeks)
Receiving New Project Notifications
All those who receive notification from the EditFast administration that
their Web page has been Activated are then eligible to receive New Project Notifications.
EditFast does not guarantee that you will receive a New Project Notification
and these notifications are not a guarantee of work. They are simply a message
sent to notify you that a client or the EditFast admin has requested communication
with you about a project. If you have the required skills, software, and are
available at that time, then you will receive the project.
New Project Notifications can come from two sources:
A. New Project Notifications direct from potential clients.
If a client selects you as an editor, you will
receive notification containing a link to the project description and the
client's message. This notification will be sent to the email address you
have registered with EditFast.
Download the document and look it over.
Click on "Create Estimate" on the project description page or
in your project list and complete the estimate form.
The client will receive your estimate and either agree, decline, or submit
a counter proposal. Continue until a decision has been made. Hopefully,
an agreement will be reached.
It is entirely your responsibility to deal with clients and EditFast will not
interfere in the process unless you need help. EditFast Admin is always available for
consultation on any matter.
B. New Project Notifications from the EditFast administration.
The process is similar to the above, but in this case the projects will
sometimes be offered at a set rate and sometimes require an estimate.
The "client" is EditFast.
Payments to editors will be made through PayPal.
Clients pay EditFast and EditFast pays the editors.
EditFast gets 40% of the final total project price whether the project
comes directly from a client or from the EditFast administration.
Upon completion of a project the editor must submit a formal invoice
to EditFast from the project description page.
EditFast pays all invoices on the last day of the month following the
month of receipt of the invoice.
Direct contact with a client is expressly forbidden except through the
EditFast Message Center.
For security reasons and to maintain our client base you must never
include your email address, telephone number, last name, mailing address,
or any personal contact information of any kind in any message sent to
an EditFast client or potential client.
Anyone found trying to circumvent these restrictions will no longer
be eligible for New Project Notifications and all information related
to that editor's email address, name and profile will be deleted from
the editor database.
