Todor:

Keep in mind that money may ONLY go through Upwork.

You can not accept money sent to you directly by a client.

So presumably a client has paid you via Upwork.


That money shows up here:

 

Upwork -> Reports -> Overview

 

When you see money there, it means it is your Upwork account.

 

You will withdraw your funds using your own payment withdrawal method:

re: "Hi, unfortunately there are no money released on my upwork account from this project."

 

Todor, it sounds like you did something wrong. We need to figure out what you did wrong, so you don't make the same mistake again.

 

Are you saying that there is no money ANYWHERE when you go here:

 

Upwork -> Reports -> Overview

 

Everything is zero?

 

What contracts do you see listed when you go here:

 

Upwork -> My Jobs -> My Jobs

On that overview page there's a link "When will I get paid".  Click that, and look at the articles starting with "Get Paid for Hourly..."  and "Get Paid for Fixed...".  They explain the timeline.

Todor:
This is great news! It means you are using Upwork properly!

It means you had a real contract and you really got paid.

 

Now you just need to wait until your money becomes available.

It is not supposed to be available immediately. There is a waiting period.

You can click on the numbers on the Reports -> Overview page to read descriptions about how long each waiting period is.
