After I submitted a proposal, the client got in touch and suggested we do a trial run with a smaller project, saying he would 'compensate me for my effort' ( that's all he said).
I'm all for doing a trial - I'm just not sure how the "logistics" of payment would work in this case.
Assuming I'll be compensated in any case after I submit the trial work, how to make sure this client will be true to his word given I don't know him and there are no reviews from other freelancers?
Any and all information appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I consider every job on Upwork a paid trial project.
Every single one.
None of us have tenure.
There are clients I have worked for through Upwork for many years. But my contract with them is on a "trial" basis. If they do not value my work, they can end the contract at any time.
