My client invited me to do some drafting works for his project so i accepted his invitation. After we got the contract i never heard anything from him, he has not sent the files he said i'm going to work with. Its been 5 days now and we got 2 days remaining in the contract. I cant do anything because he is not responding to my messeges.
My question is, Will i receive a badfeed back score if i connot do the project at the end of the contract?
If you don't take action yourself, you probably will get a bad feedback score. The client could say anything and you would have no recourse. I would suggest reporting the problem to upwork customer service, at least that way you avoid a bad review being allowed to be put on your profile. Good luck!!
If your client is not responding to your messages, go ahead and close the contracts. Your clients will have the opportunity to provide feedback during the 14-day period after the end date. Your Job Success Score won't be affected negatively if you as a freelancer close your contracts, unless there's a pattern of contracts with no feedback.
The party that ends the contract is required to leave feedback, and we'd advise building your communication and relationships with clients in a way that you don't need to close the contracts yourself.
I hope this helps!
