Hi, I was charged for the freelancer's work last week: $43 for the 7:10 hrs worked + $36 for Salary. I wasn't aware of the Salary charge. Could you please explain that Salary charge?

Hi Juan,

 

The reason why you see charge is because you have added a Recurring Weekly Payment ("Salary") on the contract when you have sent the offer to the freelancer.

 

Salary means that the freelancer will get paid weekly even if they don't track any time. At this moment the freelancer can issue a refund for the salary amount they have received. 

 

Thank you!

Hi,
Thanks very much for your help.
How could I remove that recurring weekly payment from the contract? or do I
have to cancel the contract and create a new one?

thanks
Juan

Hi Juan,

 

Yes, to make changes you must end the current contract, rehire your freelancer, and set different weekly terms in the Advanced Options.

 

Thank you.
