What do you need to spend for the project? Transactions outside of Upwork are not allowed. Why is the client not buying what he needs himself?

Pending means the payment method of the client was not charged yet.

Am not doing any transactions outside upwork.

Hi! I happen to be experiencing a similar issue with the person above. I just want to know why the payment still pending meanwhile the invoice for the payment is already available?

Hi Favour,


Pending payments on Fixed-Price contracts become available after a five-day security period has passed. You can check this help article to learn more.
