why do some jobs not have milestones?

I was just wondering why some jobs don't allow to propose milestones when bidding? Is this something the client controls? Basically there is no option on them to select by project or by milestone.

I'm pretty sure it's determined by the dollar value of the project.

 

When they don't have it, if I think it's a job best suited by milestones, I just write, "I'd propose starting with..." and lay them out at the end of the proposal.

All jobs have milestone(s) - Just low value ones may have only one (under $ 100 if i am not mistaken)

 

I bid per project for anything not too far above $ 1000

 I'm pretty sure she's talking about the bid form. For larger jobs, the freelancer can bid by milestone or per project, but for smaller jobs the option to create proposed milestones is not available.

 Yes, but the "per project" job still has a milestone, just a single one...

 

My brain's fried, I may be nit-picking 😄

Sorry, I've been busy and forgot I made this. lol. Yes, I mean in the bid form, but I've had projects that were $2000, for example, with no way to create a milestone and only have the option of by project, so I was just curious why some other projects of equal value do have it, while some don't, is it a glitch or just some don't have it for whatever reason? But yes, I could certainly suggest milestones to the client. 🙂 

 

Yeah, the per project is still a milestone, but I was wondering why some don't have a way to have multiple milestones while there are ones with the same value that do have the option. I especially prefer multiple milestones when dealing with larger amounts.
