So I can’t remember what thread it was posted in but I noticed someone mentioning they were developing a system to automate their jobs on fiverr and freelance sites.

I’m not asking what specific tasks can be automated, I’m just seeing if it’s possible or if anyone has done it before?

Obviously this isn’t Fastlane but I am intriged to view it with an open mind and see if it’s possible.

Not seen freelancer. Neither upwork or fiverr have much of an API. So your not going to Literally automate it.too easily. You could possibly scrape email alerts to trigger a process, but you need a dedicated email and enough detail in the email New order alert and nothing else isn't very helpful.

They said maybe you could hire someone. My skill set is in the technical side.

Zapier might be a good call - use it to scrape inbound emails?

Other than that, you could look at building a system which kind of takes over a "browser" and sends commands via cURL... but without any API it would be a "play by ear" thing.

What is it you're trying to automate exactly?
