In today’s gig economy, freelancing is a more popular route than ever. But many would-be freelance workers get stuck on where to start. That’s where Lowkel comes in. Our platform is now available to local freelancers and qualified workers. If you are looking to become self-employed, earn good money, and be your own boss, Lowkel is the best place to start. In this article, we’ll be discussing how you can get started on your freelance journey with Lowkel.
Freelancing With Lowkel
At Lowkel, our freelance delivery drivers aren’t just contractors — they are partners in our business, and core members of our team. That’s why we strive to make freelancing with Lowkel a great opportunity. Freelancing at Lowkel allows you to support your local community, get paid to drive your car, and control your own work-life balance.
We provide Schedule-in-Advance and On-Demand work opportunities, so you can work whenever (and however) you want. You can accept (or decline) jobs as they become available, allowing you to be in total control of when you work. If you prefer to work certain days or time periods, that’s also an option. Lowkel freelancers can set an automatic acceptance of jobs during a pre-selected window of time. There’s also no minimum to the number of jobs you can select while you work.
Same Day Pay
At Lowkel, we are proud to offer same-day pay for our freelance team members. No more waiting days or weeks to get paid for the work you’ve completed. Drive for Lowkel and get paid immediately — it’s that simple.

Lowkel cares about the safety of our freelancers. That’s why we provide detailed safety guides to help mitigate risk during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. In addition, we are including a COVID-19 surcharge for our customers — all of which gets passed on to our freelance drivers.
