Need Hour Payment Protection Suggestion

Hi Friends,


hope you all are very well.


Today, I have been hired by an employer on hourly. For her, it is a first-time project. Her profile is payment verified but not has spent any amount yet. 


So my question is, should I accept her hourly offer without any deposit on Escrow or not?


Please give your valuable feedback.




Hi Ram,


When you enter an hourly contract with a client, having a verified payment method is one of the criteria taken into account in order to qualify for Hourly Protection. I suggest that you take a look at this help article for more information on how this works. Also, please check this post for the freelancer resources we compiled and tips for avoiding questionable jobs that we put together to help freelancers make decisions whether to work with a client or not.


Thank you.

There is no escrow for hourly jobs.  Use the Time Tracker, add meaningful memos when you're working, and you're good to go.
