    If you have a very specific, easily definable task, use the fixed payment option. If the work is longer term, more complicated, and more ambiguous project, then use the pay per hour option.

    I second Heffe...

    I am also doing some outsourcing jobs on oDesk.... I Would recommend you to post Fixed price job cos Hourly job candidates will try to shave your money by elaborating the Job as maximum as possible...

    Stick with Philippines Candidates, They do quick and expect less and deliver More work...

    Do research their feedbacks and portfolio to find out whether they are suitable candidate for your job...

    Good Luck!
