Hi Reinier,

 

I just wanted to follow up on your question re: Paypal -- we have now rolled it out to all Direct Contracts users, so your clients will have the option of using their credit card or Paypal account for funding contracts.  Let me know if you have any further questions.

 

Best,

Jason

Hi,

I just tested it. Looks good. One suggestion / feature , I would love to see.

 

When As a freelancer you ask for money, the client gets an email.

 

They fill up the name and add money.

 

 

At this stage money gets added in Escrow.  It can be great, if you add a option that, client agree to pay and money is relased as well.

 

So 2 options : 1. Put in escrow.   2. Add in Escrow & Release Funds Now.

 

That will help us to avoid multi email communications.

 

thank you.

Lalit

Wow I was really excited about this until I saw responses from other freelancers. Great idea, poor execution. Kind of like the un-edited posts I make sometimes, haha.

Hi Alexander,

I’m saddened to hear that this was your first impression of our beta product. I do want you to know that the entire Direct Contracts team (including myself) is committed to learning as quickly as we can from this test launch and re-adjusting when necessary to ensure that this is a product that both you and your client can use with confidence and ease. Please feel free to send me any specific feedback - I’d love to hear them! Thank you for giving our new idea a try!

Hi Jason, 

 

As a freelancer I'm loving this concept - it's a sign that Upwork cares for freelancers as it will allow us to drag clients to this platform from wherever we can find them. Can I please be added to the next rollout group? Thank you.
