I had confirmed a $600 task with a client in which there was a milestones for each step. For first step task amount was $20. I performed and complete a small task of $20 as freelancer and while this initial task I found there some server issue and when I complete the task client offered me $20 but before I accept the offer client withdrawn the offer with reason project is cancel we first need to solve our server issue then will get back to you. Now How do I get my $20 ?

Hi Yashoda,

 

I would like to confirm that you had a pending offer only, since you haven't accepted the offer a contract was not formed. 

In order to be eligible for our Upwork Payment Protection you will need to be hired on a official contract. Once you  have been hired on a official contract you will need to submit the work on the milestone created for you. To learn more about how you`re protected on Fixed price contracts check this Help Article. Thank you.

Without a contract there is nothing to pay. You have to read some more about how Upwork works so you won't get explored on a regualar basis. I am sure Petra will come along with her chart.

Yashoda: this is over. There is no $20.

If the client sent you any money without an Upwork contract, you could be suspended. So don't try to get this money.

Yashoda: You aren't in any trouble with Upwork. You are not going to be in any trouble. So don't worry about that.

 

You have clearly learned from your mistake and I am certain you won't make that mistake again.

 

You know that you won't get that $20, but that is okay. The lesson you learned is far more valuable than that.

Some clients know that without a contract, you can't make them pay. So, they let freelancers who don't insist on a contract do the work and then vanish. You have no way to make the client pay now.
