I have submitted the work to the client, the client was very much impressed with the work. He thanks to me in the message. After that, I delivered the work 1 day ago, but the client still has not released my payment. 
I messaged him once but he didn't replySmiley Sad

What should I do?

re: "What should I do?"


Do nothing.


Do what I do:


After I click the "Submit Work / Request Payment" button, I do NOTHING.


I do NOT send a message to the client. Because Upwork automatically sends a message to the client.


I wait.


If the client DOES NOTHING, then Upwork releases all of the money to me automatically.

How much time will it take to release the money by UpWork automatically?

It's only been one day. Give them a chance. 

It will be released automatically 14 days after you submit the work for payment.
