Hi Raul,

I guess you are referring to an escrow amount funded by a client. If you are dealing with a fixed contract whose milestone was "(funded)" then this is the case.

To ensure payments, clients are charged for money before any work is done. This money is held until clients release them to freelancers after they finish their jobs or until freelancers agree to let them go when jobs are cancelled.
