I created a fixed price contract and then changed the price to a lower budget. The job is now completed and I paid the budget amount and there are still funds in escrow. When I look to see how I can request an escrow fun, it tells me to click end contract and choose a different amount to pay. Now that I have already paid the budget amount, this option is not coming up.
I am scared that if I end contract, the funds in my escrow will be lost and I will not be able to get it back.
Essentially, my question is, if I end the contract, will the funds in escrow be refunded back to me?
How do I get my escrow funds back?
If you close the contract with funds still remaining in Escrow an Escrow refund request will be sent to your freelancer.
The freelancer will have 7 days to approve it or reject it. If no actions are taken the funds will be released to you. Thank you.
