No that's not what I mean. We're on a contract, and the first milestone has been approved and paid for. It still remains $400 and we agreed that it'll be paid for after submitting.

If it wasn't funded, there is nothing anyone can do. There is no dispute process for unfunded milestones. 

But 2 days, especilly with the holiday weekend, is too early to panic yet, give the client at least until Tuesday before you start chasing, especially if they are in the US.

The client has really solid profile on here and I was happy to get something good so scams didn't even cross my mind. 

There is nothing hinting at a scam at this point. Not only is it the weekend, it's a holiday weekend in the US.

Oh I had no idea about the holiday as I don't live there. Sigh, thanks so much, I can take a chill pill now.

Hello,
I started an hourly project for a client. And I have delivered the work but the client isn't replying his message even when he is online.
After submission, he said he check and get back to me . but I waited but i didnt hear from him.. So I went through his reviews and I found out that some freelancers have the same view about him
Please How do I get paid for the work. Or is there a way the client must have run away with my money ??

It was an hourly contract.

Did you use the Upwork tracker to tack your time? Then you get paid automatically.#

 

Is this the same situation you asked about on Monday? Which part of the answers did you not understand?

re: "I want to ask a question which is my client give me a contract and doesn't giving me any information (requirement) about project."

 

Imran:

That doesn't make any sense.

Why would you accept a contract wihtout knowing what you are supposed to do?

 

Did the client post a job posting that just said: "Work for me?"

Nobody creates a job posting like that.

 

If you accepted a contract and you don't know what to do, then you made a mistake.

 

I never accept an hourly contract unless I know enough about the project to do at least ten minutes worht of work.

 

I never accept a fixed-price contract unless I know everything necessary and have all of the files needed in order to COMPLETE the project.

 

That way, when I accept a contract, I can always finish it. Even if the client never contacts me again or never logs onto Upwork again. If the client decides to move to a remote island without any Internet access, then I still get paid.

I am a total newbie, I cannot find my work under my job section. My client messaged me his details and project via message and I responded it by completing my work. Now he is not talking!!

Rohit, you worked for free.

 

Don't make the same mistake next time.

Hi Rohit, 

I checked your account and unfortunately can confirm that the client did not send you an offer just yet. In the future, please do no not work on any project until a client has sent you an offer, you have accepted it, it's showing on your My Jobs page as an active contract, and the client's payment method is verified. 

I would recommend that you read up on the Safety First! section of the freelancer resources we have compiled here, and these tips for avoiding questionable jobs, for more information about working safely through Upwork.
