Hi

I am not sure I am in the right forum for this, please feel free to move this post to the right forum.

I run into the same problem every time I bid for a proofreading job: the system tells me it cannot accept my bid because it is below my price range. Of course it is, my proofreading rates are lower than my translation rates!

Is there a way we can solve this technical glitch?

Hi Sarah Mar 23, 2005

Did you try to use the "Other pricing" box?

Yes I did Mar 23, 2005

Hi Natalie,

Yes I did but that gave me an error message saying that the pricing field cannot be empty. I had to enter my regular -translation- rate in that box and specify "for this job" in the Other Pricing box to be able to submit my bid.

Repeat Price in Comment Box Mar 23, 2005

I've run into this a couple of times. I tend to use "other pricing" as was suggested but I almost always repeat my rates in the comment box below as well. Just a suggestion.
