hello, i would like to hire a freelance, but never did before. I would like to know who carries the billing issue if it is carried by upwork or the own freelance takes care of the billing.
thanks and best regards,
If you find and hire a freelancer through Upwork, then all billing is handled through Upwork.
In fact, if you pay a freelancer directly, then it is a violation of Upwork ToS rules, for both parties.
