It's been over 1 week, I got a job opportunity from one of my clients. At the beginning, we agreed to use hourly price. I agreed to the contract.
There was a technical error, the time records did not work, he complained to me. Problems can be solved when I tell that I'm new comer on Upwork.
A few days later my client chat me and express interested to buy my product, I offer fixed price and he approve.
Test product has been done for 2 time, every will transaction, he always ask again for test my product.
Based on previous experience, when the client performs the payment process there will be one more step, that the project has been completed which stated by the client.
If my client is not willing to declare that the project has been completed, do I still get payment from the work that I have completed it ?. Please advise.
Apologize if my grammar not so good
Solved! Go to Solution.
I checked your account and I'm not sure what client you were referring to. If you are referring to the most recent closed hourly-contract, and you have submitted work for this project, I would suggest that you ask your client to issue you a bonus payment for the work that you have completed.
For hourly contracts, please be sure to log time for the hours worked so that your client's payment method is charged, and you are paid automatically. You may read this help article to know more on how you can get paid for hourly contracts.
I would also recommend that you read up on these best practices and tips we have compiled to help you with your freelancing business.
Indeed there is currently no new contracts again but he said that he agrees my fixed price contract model that I propose.
Currently in negotiation process. My question is "Is it possible to happen, after my work is done, then my client declare is not finished yet, so the payment process becomes delayed".
It can happen because every will start the contract process, he always wanted another explanation.
If the above is still possible, maybe I will think twice to accept his project.
Thank you very much for your super advice, yes I am a bit suspicious, as the hourly contract goes on and I say that the timekeeper is not running, he kinda force me to continue. Especially now he started to chat me through other upwork menu ....
Once again thank you Mellisa.
