    What does the average bid mean? mine is currently $16500 from two bids, and when at the start it asked for your project budget, I chose one a bit over my head, I won't have to pay any fees or anything like that?

    Nothing to worry about, your average bid is just the average of all of your bids combined. Typically, you want to keep your project budget low so that people work hard to outbid each other. It's really no big deal though, it doesn't mean there's any fees involved.

    There is a lot of detail on how to set up the bids in Redtide's book and the $30 thread that might help you out. It can seem a little confusing at first. Don't give up though. You'll get the hang of it in no time.:D

    Not at all, you get one free trial listing when you open a GAF account. You can always just create a number of accounts to have more bidders to choose from without paying the listing fees.

    what is your project that they bid so much? try odesk, it can be better for finding cheaper workers but you have to learn how to work their system
