Weekly Retainer contract

Hey Upwork community, 

I have a concern:

The payment for "weekly retainer" contract will show at the beginning of week or at the end of the week?

thanks

Hi Abdullah,

 

I checked the contract I think you may be referring to and it is an hourly contract that allows you to log hours but also has the Weekend Payment set up for it. Weekly Payment becomes available after the standard security period and you can find more information about how it works here.

Hi Valeria,

 

Just FYI. I had a client set up a weekly retainer in error while setting up our hourly contract.

Maybe the feature isnt clear enough for clients to know what it's for?

Not sure how many clients have made this mistake though. Just curious.

 

Thanks!

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us, Remi. I'll be sure to share it with our team.

Lots of clients have made that mistake.

 

But Abdullah is just asking about the timing of payment.

It will not show in the beginning nor at the end of the week. The amount will be directly goto pending after 5 days of the weekend.
