Hi Askarali,


Your client will need to send you an offer and once you`ve accepted it a contract will be formed. To learn more about our Payment Protection check out this Help Article. To learn more about Getting Started on Upwork check out our recourses on this thread.  If you have any additional questions let me know. Thank you.

Before you proceed any further with this contract I STRONGLY suggest that you click on this link

And under the heading Popular Topics, that you read every single link in the 9 sections. That way you won't get scammed, and you'll know the procedures of working correctly on this site.


Go you have an official contract?

Is escrow FULLY funded.?


And you don't get paid Before you start work, you get paid AFTER you submit the finished product to the client and the client approves your which point the client will release the FULLY funded escrow amount and if they don't, those funds will be automatically released to you in 14 days.
