Client didnt pay.

The client didn't pay me. **Edited for Community Guidelines** . I accepted it. Amount in escrow: $100.00. I finished the job. Client was satisfied. It was on Friday, 19.01. It still stands as an active contract. What now?

Hey Bojana,

Did you use Submit work/Request payment button? If so the payment will be released to you after 14 days. You can go to the Overview page to see what stage your payment is. However, try to contact your client asking if they have more work for you (surely with another milestone and payment) if no ask them to close the contract to be sure you get feedback.
You are protected as long as your payment goes through UW.


Hope this helps!

Yes, i did use Submit work/Request payment. Client is offline all the time. Its in Review. 

Thanks for the answer. 

So no need to be worried. You'll get paid.

 

Happy freelancing!

 Then you get paid automatically 14 days after you LAST clicked on the "Submit work and request payment" button.

 

You also only submitted 2 days ago, on a Friday. Clients have 14 (!!) days to review the work, and it is weekend. Some people have weekends and don't work and do fun things (or so I am told)

No worries, you will be paid. It's a process starting with "work in progress" then to "Review"  then to "Pending" then finally to "Available". Each stage takes few days to move to the next. So have patience, visit it always and hope for the best. Ffinally finally you will be paid.
