Hi, I´m in my first 24 hours in upwork, 


I got a liitle job to do!!!


the client send me an offer and I accepted, so I did the job, and send  the file with the final work


this is correct or should I´ve waited for payment first?

Hi Ana,


Since Escrow is funded for the contract and you have delivered the work to your client, just make sure to click "Submit Work/Request Payment" button on the contract details page.


You can find more information about Upwork's Fixed-Price Protection program in this Help article and legal doc.


You can find valuable information in the Getting Started as a Freelancer section of the Help Center and by reading "A Freelancer's Guide to Upwork". I also suggest watching our educational videos and reading the best practice advice shared by other users:
