Is there any limit of manual hours for a contract and may I face any problem with manual hours? I am entering manual hours after approval of my clients. But I want to ask that, is there any problem if I enter 30+ manual hours for a single contract in a week and then 20+ in next week?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Laiq, every hourly contract I've worked on had a limit for the number of hours per week. It doesn't matter if the hours are manual or recorded by Upwork app or a combination of both, it's the total hours worked that cannot exceed the amount permitted by the client.
The limit of manual hours is most likely the maximum specified in the contract.
Yes, you may face problems because Hourly Protection for Freelancers is not available for manual hours.

Thank you all for the guidance. I am sorry because I was not clear in my question.
I know that hourly limit is set by client for each contract. My concern is If I add several manual hours with permission of my client (within the weekly hours limit) , and I add manual hours every week, will I face any problem from upwork that why I am adding so much manual hours? I fully trust my client and never had any payment issue with him.
Just want to know if upwork has any limit of manual hours? And one additional question, will these manual hours be added in my total hours worked?
Upwork has no issue how many manual hours you are going to add remaining in client's set limits.
2. Yes, manual hours PAID will also added into your total hours.
As Muhammad Saif mentioned above, as long as your client and you discuss and agree on the payment model that fits both of you, you shouldn't have any issues with adding manual hours on the contract. A lot of freelancers choose manual time as their primary way of billing clients they trust.
