You won't be paid automatically for the extra hours, and there's no guarantee you'll be paid at all for anything over the contract limit. I think your best bet at this point is to discuss it with your client. If they agree to cover the extra three hours they can issue a bonus for that amount from the contract page. 

 

In the future, if you think you're going to exceed the contract limit, talk with the client in advance and ask them to raise the limit. If they don't, then don't work the extra hours.

You will not be paid automatically.

 

But if you ask the client to pay you, he may do using the "Pay Bonus" tool.

 

Clients have the option to pay you additional money at any time, as a bonus.

Hi Sarah, 

Hours that go over the number of hours in your contract are not automatically billed to the client. Your client will need to pay this in the form of a bonus payment, which will go through a five day security period before it becomes available to your account. You may read more about it here.

 

As a gentle reminder please know that bonus payments are not covered under Upwork Payment Protection.
