Cannot pay balance after project complete

I hired a freelancer who has completed a project for me. I deposited half of the budget into escrow and released the amount once it was complete and now the project is marked complete; however am not able to approve the second milestone to pay the rest. Can you please assist?

I think this is because you didn't create 2 milestones for this project, so now the system think the project is completed.


I think you can talk with your freelancer to arrange a bonus equal with the amount that should be on the second milestones.


Do it this way:

-Project completed

-You got the result

-Freelancer got his money.

Hi Gisele, 

Hieu is correct. Since the contract is already closed, you can go to your Contracts page > click on the Contract name > which will lead to the contract page. Just beside the "Rehire" button, click on the button to send a bonus to your freelancer.
