Hello everyone please help me actually i got a project of 130 dollars in 4 milestones 1st milestone i had completed but 2nd milestone not approved by him. I leaving msgs but he don't do any reply. What should i do now?
If the 2nd milestone has not been approved yet but has been funded then payment will automatically be released after 14 days (if I am not mistaken). That's the beauty of funded milestones. Clients may take a vacation. That's their prerogative.
At this point, if you have fulfilled the actual written requirements of the original agreement, then navigate to your job listing and submit the work you have done using the "Submit Work / Request Payment" button.
One of the following will then happen:
- the client will release the payment to you
- the client will do nothing
- the client will request a change
- the client will ask to release a different amount of money or zero
If the client releases payment to you, that's good.
If the client does nothing, that's good. You'll get paid automatically.
If the client requests a minor change, go ahead and do it and re-submit.
Please, ask your client to fund the milestone before you submit completed work to them. Once they fund it, you'll be able to submit your work via the system.
Swati, in the future you will best protect yourself by not doing any work on a milestone until it is funded. If there was never a funded milestone, there is no way to make the client pay you.
