Hi Muhammad,

 

When working hourly contracts, all time logged in the Work Diary by the freelancer is automatically invoiced to the client using the schedule below.

  • Week 1 โ€“ Freelancer logs time using the Upwork desktop app and Work Diary.
  • Week 2 โ€“ Hours within the weekly limit invoice to your clients on Monday. They have until Friday to review the work. Then the review period ends.
  • Week 3 โ€“ Earnings become available on the following Wednesday.

I suggest checking out this help article for more information.

 

Once the payment has been processed, the contract will start showing on your profile.

 

Thank you.

Relax.

 

This is normal. This is fine.

 

You will be paid automatically for all the time that you logged, according to the regular schedule.

Did you log the time using the tracker? If not, the money is gone! 

 

If you did, go and check in Reports - > Overview. And if it appears there you should be paid as per the standard schedule! 

 

Yeah Ashraf... I use Upwork Desktop application and Tracker was on..
I have work diaries...!!
and complete timetable...

and in overview It is showing...
the picture I have attached down there...!!

As it is saying ..work in Progress... but my Contract has ended

Yes, but the work week is not over.

The client will be charged next Monday and the funds will be available on Wednesday the 29th September. 

 

That is how hourly contracts work as was explained to you several times now.
