Built by Freelancers, For Freelancers
Varascend was built using Varascend. After I finished the prototype, I hired every single person that worked on the platform by using the platform. That's how I know it will work for you! - Shon Sherwood, Founder and CEO, Varascend / 4bid.me, Inc.
Clients love it
We give clients full control and transparency when booking. All you have to do is keep your calendar up to date so that we can show clients when you're available. They schedule time with you. It's a self service model and clients absolutely love it because it's easy and fast.
Your calendar is your friend
We’ve automated booking and payment. That means when a client books you, the job automatically appears on your calendar without you lifting a finger. If you don't want the job, just refund the payment and wait for another client!
Think you deserve a raise?
Let the market decide! If you have a strong client base and multiple clients want to hire you at the same time, they will bid for your time and drive up your rate through our proprietary time auction engine. You don't need to get involved, so let them decide who wins! You'll see the results when the money hits your bank account. You don't ever need to think about raising or lowering rates again!
Build a massive client base
Varascend lets clients manage themselves. It's easy to take on a large number of clients and jobs through our platform. Plus, a big client base can lead to more bidding and hourly rate increases for you. So don't be afraid to develop a huge client base. You can handle 10 clients on Varascend or 10,000. You won't be any less efficient.
Get paid faster and easier
Our automatic transfer system means that money typically reaches your checking account within 2 business days of the booking. No invoices, no receipts, no payout requests. And our fees are tiny because we're not run by profiteering gluttons.View Our Pricing to see just how little we charge.

Varascend has been a great tool for me as a chef! The site's ability to organize my schedule gives me the time to focus on the work being done. Transactions are fast too, a day or two and the funds are in my account. Thanks for relieving me of the stress for scheduling and billing!View Profile
Gabrielle Jones, Nanny
Varascend works for me! My schedule is always up to date with bookings, and I don't have to worry about being paid on time - the site takes care of everything. I know what's going on every day - I don't have to stress out about who and what and where; it's all seen to, seamlessly. I show up, have fun with the kids, and know that everything's been settled ahead of time. Best idea ever!View Profile
