My client is failed to pay the funds. He asked me to do on booth design for $ 200. So i did 3  design but he asked me to redesign the booth again. Then i asked him to pay additional $100 for the redesign but he's unresponsive. So i end my contract to get the funds. But i didn't get the funds still. How to get funds in escrow after i end my contract?

Hi Krishnaveni,

Unfortunately you wont be able to receive the funds in Escrow since you have ended your contract, unless your client sends them to you as a bonus.

When you submit your work on the milestone created for you, the funds will be transferred to you after 14 days if no actions are taken from the client.

I can advise you to check out our guides: Hourly Protection for Freelancers and Fixed-Price Protection for Freelancers.

You should never end a fixed rate contract until the funds in Escrow have been released to you, because that sends the funds back to the client (which you must have confirmed when you ended the contract.)
