Thanks for reaching out to us. I can confirm that the refund was successful from our end. It should reflect on your account within 5-business days.
You should update your documentation to reflect the fact that refunds from withdrawn/declined offers take up to 10 business days to show up in the bank, and not 5, as you currently claim.
This has been my experience on Upwork - I've often had to wait up to 2 weeks.
Updating your messaging will save you the heaps of resources you currently spend answering customers asking "Where is my refund?"
Avery its been 8 business days and i still haven't receive my refund. Can you explain why i haven't received my refund because it was to my understanding that it takes 5 business days to get a refund?
Can you please advise me what happens when a customer cancels a contract . I have attached a file to show you what the upworker said and proof that he has cancelled the contract.
This is the message i received from the upwork employee
This is too much of work for us for $ 100.. If you wanted a template to be followed you should have given us before the start of the project... We are busy to take this project further and spent more time on it... Hence cancelled the project and refunded the amount back to you.
**Edited for Community Guidelines**
If a freelancer was hired on the contract once you cancel it a refund request will be created for the freelancer. The freelancer will have 7 days to respond on this request, weather to approve the refund or reject it. Once the refund is approved the funds are also reversed back to your account.
If you need help regarding your previous refund request please follow up on your ticket and our team will assist you further. Thank you.
I have posted a job and hired a freelancer. But he could not do it and did a fake job. Then I witdrew the Job and removed it. But I can not see the amount of $100 that paid through my credit card in my balance. When can I get my money back. Please let me know.
