Cancellation of the contract on client's end before submission of the work.

A fixed contract starts between a verified client and a freelancer. Freelancer starts working on the project but before the submission of the work client cancels the project.

The freelancer has spent his time on the project. Will he be paid?

Another thing! When the amount goes into escrow? Right on start of the contract or on submission of the work?

 ------------------

If you did some work on the project IMO you should be partially paid for that work and time you put in. Whether you will be paid in part will need to be discussed between you and the client. 

 

Escrow should be Fully funded either for the entire job or for each milestone as they come up Before you start work. When a client funds escrow it shows the freelancer that the client has the funds and does intend to pay.

Hi Gulraiz, 


I checked your account and I'm not sure what contract you are referring to. Just the same, you may read up on this help article to know how you can get paid for fixed-price contracts for more information.
