I finished a job and the client wrote paid. That was three weeks ago and the funds have still not been deposited in my account. Am I missing a step in the process? Any feedback would be appreciated.
At the top of the page go to Reports, and on the drop down menu select Overview. Here you can see if your funds are pending or they are available for withdrawing.
If I finished a job 3 weeks ago, I have already been paid.
I think you made a mistake.
Was this a fixed-piece or hourly contract?
Do you see the money on your Reports page?
It was a fixed price. Under Overview it says it is there, minus the Upwork fee. I am unclear how to withdraw from there since I set up my checking account information, assumed it was directly deposited there. How can I change that so it is directly deposited?
You're fine, then!
Your money is in your Upwork account. You can manually withdraw it to checking account at any time. You can set up automated withdrawal to happen when you have $100+ in your balance.
I rarely wait for automated withdrawal. I just click manual withdraw button whenever I have a balance.
