How does a client actually pay into escrow?

I have a client who wants to pay into escrow but has no clue how to do this - in terms of where to find it on their Upwork Page - can anyone please advise.

 

Thanks (I am somewhat of a newbie ...)

Hi Kevin,

 

When a client starts a Fixed-Price contract, they're able to fund it via escrow. This means that the contract's budget will be secured and payments will be released from it to the freelancer once work is delivered and approved. You can share this help article with your client so they can get more familiar with how it works.

 

Additionally, since you're new to the platform, it would be a great idea for you to check the freelancer resources for great tips and insights on how you can work successfully on the platform. For more information about working safely through Upwork, please read these tips for avoiding questionable jobs.

 

I hope this helps, and good luck!
