This has been requested before and our team is still looking into solutions that will allow for the security period to be reduced while maintaining a high level of protection users' payments currently have. We'll update the Community once we receive feedback from our Product team but I can confirm that our team is not considering reducing the timeline for automatically releasing Escrow funds.
While we continue to test ways to get freelancers' earnings faster to them, at this point we are not able to offer shorter security period for all transactions. Security remains to be our priority.
And it would not be possible that, if you are working with someone for a while (I mean there is already trust between the client and me), can this client accelerate the payment in some way?
That there is a "button" that allows him/her to accept the work and that the money does not have to wait for "revisions".
A customer already asked me about this once.
Our team is looking into shortening the security hold time frame for some payments but we don't have any information at the moment. We'll share an update in the Community once we receive more information from our Product team.
