Hello everyone, I have question to you. Client purchased my project catalog, After get the requirement I started work. Client was happy to my work, He asked for revision and I gave him couple of revisions. Then client asked for the final file, After provide the final work then client showing some lame excuse that he don't want to pay me.

Is there any solution? How can I get paid from a project catalog?

Thanks, Raju

ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Hi Md. Raju,

 

Project Catalog is where you let clients come to you. When you create a project, it displays as a listing that clients can open to learn more. Clients find you by searching for the skills and services you offer.

 

When you create a project we will first review it before making it visible to clients. Our review includes making sure your project is complete, looks professional, and doesnโ€™t violate our Terms of Service. Please allow up to five business days for your project to be reviewed.

 

Thank you,

 

 

NOTICE:

We are currently receiving more projects for review than usual. Please allow us longer than usual to review your project.

Does it take more time for newbies project to get an approval?  If I edit some part of it during the pending status, will it restart the review journey & do I have to wait another 5 days?

Hi,

 

I submitted my project on Jan 30th. I thought it takes 5 days to approve. It's been 7 days and it's still showing under review.  Can you please check if this is going to be approved soon?

 

Thanks,

Hi All,

 

I created two projects, but they have remained pending for five days. I also sent a ticket to support two days ago and have had no replies. So I would like to know from the community:

 

1) Do projects usually take one week or more to be approved?

2) On average, when do support respond to tickets submitted?

3) When freelance projects are completed, is payment dealt with promptly?

 

Given my experience with Upwork so far, I can only assume the service is less than average. Can someone convince me otherwise?

Hi Jahmil,

 

I checked I can see your first project was submitted last 31- January for review. Please note that it can take up to five business days for your project to be reviewed. However, the team is currently receiving an unusually higher volume of requests. Kindly allow our team a few more days to review your projects. Should we need more information about your submission, our team will send you an email with details on how you can edit the project for approval.

Still waiting for it to be approved.

 

Attached the screenshot.

Waqas,

 

Provided the client doesn't approve themselves or ask for a revision, Upwork will automatically release the funds in 14 days. Have a great day!

It has been more than five days since I submitted my project catalog for review, and I have yet to receive any updates. I am uncertain as to why my catalog is still under review or if there are any issues that need to be addressed. If there are any concerns or areas for improvement, I would appreciate any feedback to ensure that my catalog meets the necessary standards. Thank you for your attention to this matter.๐Ÿ˜Š

Hi Ally,

 

Apologies for the delay as our teams are currently experiencing a higher number of project submissions than usual. Rest assured the team will review your project and update you as soon as possible. 

 

Thank you,

Hello Upwork team, I'm eagerly anticipating the approval of my project dashboard. It's currently under review, but I'm concerned that it may take too long. Can you please assist me? Thank you.

I have sent 4 projects for reveiw on Upwork for some time now and I am getting very impatient. I was told that projects are approved on Upwork five working days after submission and I am getting fed up. Initially, I was told by a friend that Upwork is one of the best freelancing platforms but I never expected it to be this way. I can't see any difference between Upwork and Fiverr. I am getting fed up already.

Hi Aqeelah,

Please allow some time for the team to review and get back to you about your Catalog project submissions. We're experiencing higher volumes of submissions so delays are possible. Thanks for your patience. 

Meanwhile, I'd recommend you continue working on improving your profile. Make sure your profile picture is an actual photo of you and feel free to check out these
 Upwork Academy courses to help you get started:
 
We hope you find these online resources useful in your Upwork journey.

Hi Upwork Community,

 

Do you know exactly how much time it will take to get your Project or Gig approved? Actually, on 13-Feb-2023 I created a Flutter project and from that day till 17 Feb, it's in the Under Review phase.

 

Please let me know if you have any idea about it, thanks.

 

Kind Regards,

Hamza

1. Can I apply for a job without project catalog?

 

2. What does it mean to bid for a job?

 

3. How can I set up my rate

 

Hi Mabel,

 

1. Yes! You can definitely apply for a job without a project Catalog. Creating a project in Project Catalog is another way to connect with clients and earn. By creating a project, you can craft clear, defined work with set timing, details, and pricing.

 

We review all projects for quality and professionalism. Once your project has been approved, you can highlight it on your profile. Creating a project in Project Catalog allows you to sit back and let clients come to you!

 

To answer your next two questions, you may want to check our Upwork Academy for an interactive suite of courses and tools for helping you succeed on Upwork. You'll find topics from best practices for choosing your profile headline and advice for setting your rate to scam awareness tips. It can definitely help you get started with Upwork!
