Hello Upworkers

 

 

I have had a hard time understanding how these two paying systems work, so i hope someone here explains how it works. (suppose i have got 2 jobs, one is Fixed and the other is Hourly).

 

So my question is:

 

How will my client pay fixed price?

How will my clients pay hourly?

 

Thank you.

Dear Kamaal, 

 

Fixed price Contract

 

1. Check if your client funded agreed amount. 

 

2. You need to check before start work whether it is funded or not. You can check that in contract details. 

 

3. There is button to make enable the client to release payment. 

 

4. Client can also release itself without freelancer request. 

 

Hourly Job

 

You will track your time through Upwork tracker that you can download from your Upwork main page. 

 

At the weekend, Upwork send bill to your client and he/she will approve it. You will get the payment without any request. 

 

BOTH CASES

 

There is security period, Upwork will keep that amount as pending for specific days. For hourly, It is around about 9 days. For Fixed price, you need to wait around 5 days to be ready for withdrawal.

 

I hope that you will get the information you are looking for.

 

Best Regards
