Yes, you can just write the freelancer you like and ask if you can buy one sample. As soon as you have agreed on a price for the sample you just ask the freelancer to submit another quote for the sample only. You then click 'book' under that specific quote and we will process the payment securely.
If you then decide to move forward with the freelancer, please ask him or her to submit another quote for the remaining work.
