    - a chat function
    - a click-to-call function allowing any buyer to call anonymously and for any provider.
    - a certification tests for the providers to evaluate their level of
    expertise, which give buyers more of an assurance of a provider’s
    skills.
    2. The payment system; Elance offers:
    - an escrow account where the buyers place the payment to the
    providers upon completion of the project .
    - once a provider completes the job, there is no guarantee that the
    provider will pay, however Elance also offers dispute assistance for both buyers and providers.
