199Jobs is a tech job site that's similar in a lot of ways to Fiverr, except that it has a focus on digital work that is all priced at ₱1.99.

In contrast to Fiverr, which is a site where you can either offer or ask for someone else to perform a specific task, this business-focused site is full of microjobs like writing Wordpress sites or creating graphic design layouts. Since the tasks are fairly simple and inexpensive, the 199Jobs community has quick turnarounds, aided by the fact that "Very little time is spent on talking to the buyers about their requirements; and the upfront payment takes away the hassle of waiting to get paid by clients," as described by 199Jobs co-founder Fitz Villafuerte.
