I am curious. This is the Upwork community forum yet in most of the forum posts oDesk is mentioned over and over. Is this really oDesk? Have we former Elancers been cunningly deceived...
Elance interface is much better than Upwork, Everything here is so confusing even after one has already spent 1 month to know things. The interface is very poor and the website is lacking some lively performance, Its almost like a dead one. How still one intends to work or post jobs here, I just don't understand???
I am sorry you are confused by the Upwork system. Please, let us know if you need help understanding any particular feature or process and we'll be happy to help.
You may also check out the Help Center. There is a lot of useful information about everything Upwork there.
I don't think that's what she is asking. I've been doing this for three years and I have a question about it The payment is listed as PENDING no date for payout and has been that way for days. It makes me think the client's having issues on their end actually making the payment (which is odd since it should have been funded already...)
It looks like there are problems with your client's payment method and they need to fix them in order for the payment to go through. You can communicate with them and ask them to resolve the issue.
"It always amazes me how people jump in, start applying, work, and all that without finding out the most basic, easily accessed information about the platform they are using"
Really? Was this necessary ?
