I am facing the same issue. I did a project without accepting the offer and when asking the client for a new offer, he says the amount is already deducted and if he makes a new offer, the upwork will deduct the amount again. Can you please help and solve this problem? Thanks

Hello Malalai,


A member of the Customer Support Team will reach out to the client for more information about the expired offer. In the future, please do not work on any contract until a contract is in place, and it is showing as an active contract on your My Jobs page.


I would recommend that you read up on these freelancer resources and these tips for avoiding questionable jobs, for help getting started, and for more information about working safely through Upwork.

Hi Oleksandr,


Those funds will be automatically returned to the billing method you used for the deposit. The credit to your billing method will take up to five business days to appear. I checked this for you and refund was initiated on December 11th, you can check this under your transactions. Let us know if you need any further assistance. Thank you.
