On the 21st of March I received an offer for a fixed contract that was due on the 25th of March. I tried to accept the offer but kept getting a message saying the client's account is on a temporary hold.
Since the deadline for the job is soon and I have finished it and want to submit, what will happen to my payment if the account is released after the scheduled deadline of 25th March? Will I still get paid? Has anyone face this?
You really shouldn't have done the work until the client got his poop together and fixed the CC issue. This could very well have been a stolen card or a scam. The only reason an offer would be on hold is because something is very wrong.
The deadline ain't your problem if they can't get their payment situation figured out in a timely manner.
