Hi Zaid,


All time logged in your Work Diary, whether tracked or added as manual time, is automatically invoiced to your client using the schedule below.

  • Week 1 – You log time using the Upwork Desktop App (Time Tracker)
  • Week 2 – Your time is invoiced to your client on Monday and they have until Friday to review your work
  • Week 3 – Earnings become available on the following Wednesday


You can also check this article to learn more about how you're getting paid on Hourly contracts.


Regarding your feedback, it will show up on your Work History once the payment for the contract has already been processed according to the Weekly Billing Cycle.


Thank you.

Zaid Bhai, 

It takes few days in pending , review and approval. Moreover I suggest you do take out your payments after it becomes a bit good amount as you can do something bigger from bigger transactions like buying Good Laptop etc for work. next thing is that make sure every transaction will cost one dollar when you do to payoneer etc.
