I have posted a job, but need help in responding to applicants. For example, **Edited for Community Guidelines** responded, but I can't find out how to contact het to see whether she is appropriate.

Found this page, but it doesn't go anywhere - not clickable.


I see a job invitation on my phone app, but not within the desktop software. Makes it hard to attach documents when submitting a proposal.

Hello, I have a question concerning a current running contact with a freelancer.  Originally I set a fixed price of $1,500 for a graphic design contract involving approx. 25 hrs of work.  For some reason the upwork network changed the $1,500 amount to $1,497.  I later realized that the website was in US dollars and I renegotiated the contract amount with a freelancer I was talking to (but had not hired yet) to be $1167 US = the equivalent of $1,500 Canadian.  The freelancer agreed to the new amount and told me they had adjusted the bid amount on their end to $1,167.


After the freelancer agreed to the new amount  I edited the bid amount and saved the changes with the new price of $1,167.  A few hours later I hired the freelancer.


What has happened:  $1,199 has been charged to our card, and it shows $1,497 still outsanding.   Why are we being charged the original amount still?  I changed the bid amount before hiring the freelancer.   And if $1,199 is being held in Esgrow why is there $1,497 still outstanding.   .

Hi Peter,

It is currently showing $1497.00 as the agreed to budget, however this is not outstanding. It's just the amount that was initially entered when setting up the budget for the project. Your escrow shows $1,167.00 being funded, and that is how much was charged to your payment method in order to fund the escrow amount, which you can confirm by clicking on the Reports tab and viewing your Transactions. Once you release the milestone amount of $1,1670, you can close the contract and will not be required to pay the difference of what your budget amount is as that is just a guideline essentially.

Hi Upwork Team,

I am also having problems contacting customer support or opening a ticket. All I am offered is a link to "Community" that turns into an error message when I click it.

I am new to the platform and I just had a first work encounter with one of your freelancers. I had clearly asked for 10 summer designs. He took five days to send me the "love" and "taco" and "valentines's day" designs that he had originally shown me as samples. I found this very disappointing and I asked him why he had not followed my instructions. He said that, yes, he had sent me the sample designs, but in my specifications (PNG file and a certain pixel amount). And he said that he needed clearer instructions. But I don't know how I could have been any clearer in my instructions. This is the wording from my original contract:

"*** Edited for Community Guidelines ***"

I am disappointed that he simply sent me his samples, which probably took him 10 minutes in total. He sent me exactly the same designs that he showed as his samples on June 9. And he even made me wait 5 days for them. Now I am not sure what to do in a case like this.

What do you say?

Thank you in advance and best regards,
