Priscilla, be patient.
How long this takes depends on your country and your bank. I live in the United States. It takes about 36 hours from the time I click Get Paid until funds show up in my account. Your wait may be different.

I worked for 3 hours,logged on the app.


Billed already but it still shows $0 earnings in my account it has been about 1 week and a few days now.


Will my earnings show after i have been paid?


My client said upwork would pay me automically.

Hi Leo,


I see that you have one payment for 2 hours in Pending, and another payment for one hour still in Review, so it all looks good. You can find this information by clicking the Reports tab.


You can read more about Hourly jobs and the weekly pay schedule in this Help article.

My Question is that.
Why does Upwork keep our funds so long? 
When the funds are released and cleared from client side Why do Upwork keeps funds for 6-7 days, 

I have worked with Elance in Past, They are so quick n  doesnt even charge anything when withdrawing funds.
Working with Elance is Great Experience, I wihs Elance Gets back..

I am aggree with Murtaza M's comment. This is very odd things. Elance is not doing this. You will get your payment instantly when client is releasing the fund from Elance Escrow system. I think that UpWork will think about this and update their payment system.

More than likely, they won't. Six day "security period"? Security for whom? it's nonsense but there it is.

I still have pending earnings, but I am not worried because I have read the manual when I signed up and so I am aware of the 6-day waiting period.

Why does Upwork take 6 days?


Because they are not Elance.
