Hi: I'm a new freelancer on Upwork. I am a little puzzled how to send proposals for jobs that talk of long-term work. When I send a proposal the form mandates me to fill in the fields for milestones payments etc. which are not applicable in these cases. What do I do?
When the client posts the job, they are the ones who decide whether to set it up as hourly or with milestones. Just fill in the amounts with a figure that you find reasonable based on what they have stated the job pays in their offer. And then in your proposal/message, ask for clarification about the pay long-term, or also ask if this could be done on an hourly basis.
