When does Upwork release a funded milestone?

Hi there,

 

I have done a project recently. I emailed the output files to the client as per his request and also submitted the work on Upwork and requested the payment. It's been many days but the client doesn't seem to be online anymore. I just want to know how long it takes Upwork to release the milestone if the client doesn't approve it. Thanks


Regards,

Umar

Just do not try to re-submit the payment request and Upwork will process your payment on the 14th or 15th day after you requested work approval.

Hello!

I have a similar question re release of a funded milestone - and thank you for the answers - 14 days.

But how is it that with another client, just a few weeks ago in early april, released the funds and i received it within the next day or 2.

hope you can clarify - many thanks!

Clients can manually release payment within seconds after we freelancers submit our work.

 

They can even release payment before we submit work if they want to.

 

14 days after we submit work is when Upwork AUTOMATICALLY releases payment if the client does nothing.
