To Ghozlani, 

I assumed it was hourly contract. As it was hourly contract, so you needed to maintain every criteria for hourly payment protection. So that upwork will ensure you getting the payment either from the client or by Upwork own pocket. On the other hand, if you didn’t maintain all criteria and you client failed to submit money for work, then it would show refund (actually "refund" word is not appropriate, we may call it "fund collection failed"). 


You can do only to request your client and let him/her understand your effort and convince to give you same amount of money as a bonus. 


Thank you.
