I got contacted for my first job today and, needless to say, I was so excited! It went well. The client was happy and paid the milestone. I have two questions, though.
The amount doesn't reflect in my earnings yet. Is it because I have to setup payment options first?
Also, I don't see the project on my profile. Is that normal? Is it because they contacted me through messages? Can I still get a testimonial for it from the client? (Note: I did accept the contract.)
Thanks for the help!
Please keep in mind that all payments need to go through our 5 days security period. To view in what stage your earnings are go to Reports > Overview.
In order for a contract to be published on your profile funds needs to be exchanged. I would also like to clarify that once you`re paid it can take up to 24 hours for everything to be updated.
I would also suggest to check out our resources Here and learn more about Upwork. Thank you.
Thanks SO much, Goran!
I really do appreciate you shedding some light on how all of that works. I'll definitely check out the resources you linked and take a chill pill.
Cheers, good sir!
