Dear sir,

I enter into a crontract with a frelancer. (ID 24192356) . Unfortunately, he couldn't  deliver on time the software and I lose my client. After quite lengthy discussions with the freelancer ,we therefore agreed in a discounted price. Because this is first time for me with upwork, I just want  your ongoing support  for amending the contract without mistakes (change the amount of fixed-price and claim reimbursement for the excess amount. Also I need to modify the due time).

Hi Giorgio,

 

You can also release a partial amount on your contract and request a refund on the remaining funds in Escrow.
To learn more about releasing a partial amount, check out this Help Article. Thank you.

Many thanks for answer, unfortunately I still have some concerns:  predetermined payout was 2200 $, we decided for 2000 $, with the introduction of a 1000 $, milestone to psy this week. Is it possible to modify the contract in this way?  I can see only the button "Pay now" without other options. 

 

Thanks for support!!

Hi Giorgio,

 

Unfortunately, it's not possible to change the amount of a funded milestone. However, as Goran noted, you can click on Pay Now button and you'll see an option to edit the amount you'll be releasing to the freelancer. So when you're ready to pay the freelancer, you could edit that amount and pay less than what was funded. Then you'll be able to request for the remainder of the funds to be returned to you when you close the contract. Thank you!

Hi Giorgio,

Yes that is correct. Once you click on Pay Now you will be directed to a new window where you can edit the amount that you would like to release towards the freelancer. Thank you.

After pressing the button PAY NOW, In the new window (as you can see from the image attached ) I can't change anything. I can only press the button PAY. So I ask again: Should I press this button for have access to the items on the menu you mentioned ?

Hi Giorgio,

 

Once you click on the Pay button a new Window will be shown to you. Here you will have a pencil case next to the amount and once you`ve clicked on the pencil case you will be edited.
If something is still confusing, let me know. Thank you.
