Getting Paid for Hourly Project

I am fairly new to this and I have finished my first hourly project but all the tutorials I've watched to get paid show a 'Submit Work for Payment' button but that doesn't show up on my Projects. What am I missing? I did use the Upwork hourly tracker.

If I'm not mistaken, the submit work for payment button is only used in fixed-price contracts, where you get payed for the work you send, that is why you have to use that button, so it triggers the payment processing. In hourly contracts you get paid by the hour and the payments are processed automatically every week. You don't need to use any particular means to deliver your work. You can deliver it piece by piece every day, or by the end of the project. You can send the files to the client using the Upwork messages, by email or publishing them in a repository. That is entirely up to you and your client.

Thank you so much for your help. This makes more sense. I appreciate it!

Patricia, 

When you start working, you have to turn on the timer so the time for work will be counted. Further, a screen shot is shared randomly to the client that you are working. If you don't want to work that way, you can ask your client that I will add manual time to work diary. If client agrees, then go ahead as manual time isn't guaranted by upwork until client accepts it. 

Tnx
