Still Waiting for My Payment

Hi Upwork:


My name is Christina and I am a new Upwork freelancer. Earlier this week, I completed my first writing gig on the platform and I was wondering when I will be able to see my first payment go through. I do not know how or when to begin. Thanks.

Hi Christina,


Congratulations on your first contract! You can check on the status of your earnings by going to Reports > Overview. Looks like the funds are Pending right now. When your client releases a milestone or final payment on a fixed-price job, it immediately shows as pending on your financial account. Pending payments become available for you to withdraw after the standard five-day security period.

You can learn more about how you Get Paid for Fixed-Price Contracts here. Once the funds are available you'll be able to withdraw them. You can check out the payment methods available here.





Thank you! I'll wait and see what next week brings.
