How to Hire someone on Weekly pay?

Hello,

 

I want to hire someone  based on weekly pay (retainer)

When I post a job, I only see hourly and Fixed pay.

Could you please advise how to enable weekly pay option?

 

Thanks

Karan

EDIT: Ignore this, as Petra has pointed out there's a much better solution 🙂

Hi Karan,

 

The simplest way is to create a fixed price contract, and then use "Milestones" for each week. So  set and fund milestone 1 for $x, at the end of week 1 approve it, then set and fund milestone 2 for week 2, and so on.

Create an hourly offer, click on Advanced Options and add the weekly salary. If you want to pay ONLY the weekly salary (not the salary and the hours worked), set the maximum number of hours to 0.

Why not just set up weekly pay if weekly pay is what the OP actually wants??

 

A weekly salary is paid automatically, so there is no need for creating, funding, activating and releasing milestones every week.

Thanks, have edited my post.
