Hi Dharmendra,

 

Yes, you should be able to use Direct Contracts from your agency. To do so, switch to your agency profile and click on the paper airplane icon in your navigation bar as shown in this screenshot. You can also check out this help article for more information.

 

Thank you.

Hi Tanuj,

 

You should be able to edit milestones for the Direct Contract. Have you tried clearing your cache and cookies or using a different browser? If the problem persists after trying that, please let us know and make sure to include a screenshot of the error so that we can take a look.

 

Thank you.

Hi!

    This is shah, Abid. I have clients we decided to do some direct contract but there is one question running in my mind.

             The questions are:

 1; Is a direct contract increase or dicrease job success score?

2; Can someone see my Direct contract on my profile when that done?

  Please someone help me and give me brief answers.

Thanks

 Shah

Thanks for your question, Shah. Since your client and you will only be using Upwork for payments, any Direct Contracts will not impact your Upwork reputation metrics (for example your Job Success Score or Top Rated status). These contracts also will not be included in your other Upwork profile stats, such as total earnings, number of jobs, etc.
