Hi Hatheek, 

 

Yes, you can send the files to your Client via Google Drive or Dropbox. 

But I'll advice you first go to My Jobs> That particular Contract> Submit work button. 

And submit your files there too. Write a description about the work you've done on that project and attach the files there, just to ensure your payment protection on fixed price contracts. 

 

Good luck!

or, like, just add the link in the milestone description box and click submit. Just share a directory with the client so they can go get files or mark up documents. What you're suggesting is overkill and not necessary.

 

And also, there is no payment protection on escrow. Don't kid yourself.

Really!!!!

Still you prefer to send your work through the submit work button. 

 

And there is payment protection on escrow on fixed price contracts. I'm not kidding at all.

lol when you get a chargeback or a dispute and you don't want to or can't afford to pony up $300 for arbitration, let me know your feelings then, chica.

Making speculations about what I can or can't do....? Last I checked arbitration fee was $291 applicable to all the parties involved. 
 
Let's not deviate from the OP's question. In my views it's been answered appropriately.

**Edited for community guidelines**Yes, the $291 is indeed charged to all three parties. Don't pay it and you auto-lose. Get a chargeback, and you wake up to a negative balance. You realize this, right?

oh jeez she didn't attack me. She just thinks I'm angry and I'm not. I'm trying to warn her and the OP against walking into an escrow job thinking that money can't be yanked from her when the client just says "meh, don't want to pay you." Unless she's got $300 to pay up, she auto-loses or has to take whatever the client throws at her, which IME is very little. Also, chargebacks.

 

There is no protection with escrow jobs, so enter at your own risk.

This thread is not about going into arbitration or paying the arbitration fees. 

If any FL decides to proceeds with the arbitration s/he ll obviously pay the arbitration fees, that includes me. If I can't justify my stand, then I'll simply refund the amount and won't proceed with the dispute itself. But If I'm convinced that I'm not at fault I will proceed with the arbitration for sure. 

 

Anyways thanks for marking my post as "Report Inappropriate Content". 

As Bojan said all of us must be respectful toward other members of the community. 

Unfortunately some of us never understand this!!
