To Daniel

This was also my point. Really glad that someone shares my views. It does not make sense for a client to approve a project, but then Upwork still holds it for 5 more days. The client has already had enough time to ascertain that the work meets the requirements. Holding on it beats logic. It is rather the 14-day period for clients to review remains the same (though it can still be shortened/reduced), but the 5-day waiting period for fixed hour contracts is eliminated. That column should be removed as it does not add any value to Upwork, the client, or the freelancer. I wish there was a voting system so that we vote on such issues, but the only thing we can do is air out our grievances.

Fixed contracts payments were already being released in 5 days. This means now both hourly and fixed contracts will be paid out in 5 days. So what else do you need?


By my count, this is actually a reduction from 14 days to 9 days, and not 10 days to 5 days.

Bravo.  That 10 day hold can be excruciating in times like these.  Thank you for awarding those of us that have worked hard to earn that Top Rated distinction.
