Mobile Hiring – Fixed-Price

How do fixed-price contracts work?

At the start, you and your freelancer agree on certain work milestones and how much you'll pay for the completion of each. Before work begins on a milestone, you'll pre-fund the payment into an escrow account. Upon receiving and approving that milestone, you release payment to your freelancer.

How do I pay?

You release funding as each milestone is completed to your satisfaction. Learn more.

What if there is a problem?

You're protected by Upwork Payment Protection, which assures that you pay only for work you’ve approved. If an issue ever should arise, our payment protection and dispute resolution programs will help fix the situation.

How does Upwork make money?

Freelancers pay Upwork a variable service fee, taken as a percentage of their earnings.
