Should have read the message they popup when you accept a fixed price contract.
Use only an hourly contract if you want to be sure you'll get the money.

For those of us who are quite experienced and knowledgeable about Upwork... I think we know something like this can happen.

 

But it is not an unreasonable assumption for a typical, newer freeleancer to make... to think that ESCROWED FUNDS are "guaranteed."

 

Those funds are NOT guaranteed.
Nothing about a fixed-price contract is really "guaranteed" as far as I am concerned.


But I definitely undestand why someone would think that it is.
