I have a completed fixed price contract. It's been 21 days since I first requested payment, but I've had zero response from the client. Why has the money not been released to me from escrow?

so the 14 days resets every time I request payment???
Yup. The client has 14 days to review. You resubmit, they get another 14 days.

some might say making an offical payment request more than once in 2 weeks is to!!!
At least you wont make the same mistake again - and the money in escrow IS there for you if the client continues to go silent.

I was all set to respond "Unlike jumping into a platform like this without familiarizing oneself with payment terms and mechanisms," assuming you were a newbie. Then I checked your profile and now I'm SMDH that someone could be that successful here and only now encounter a ghosting client. That's gotta be some kind of record. Actually, it attests to your skill in choosing and cultivating clients, even on small, one-off projects. For that, you're to be congratulated IMO. Still...hope you're laughing, too!
