How Starter Projects Work
- Choose a project. Select one that meets your deliverables and budget.

How much will my project cost?
Interested freelancers will review the project and submit a proposal and a price estimate for the work. You can review the proposals and select the freelancer who best fits your needs. The price you pay will depend on the freelancer you select, and most clients find it to be at or slightly lower than their starting budget.
What if I'm not happy?
With Upwork Payment Protection, you will only pay if you approve the work. When you hire a freelancer, you will deposit the starter project amount into escrow (escrow refers to money held by a third-party on behalf of your freelancer and you). You'll get a chance to review and approve the work before releasing your deposit to the freelancer.
What do I do when the project is over?
You'll receive the deliverable, review it, and release payment to the freelancer. At that point you can either end the contract or continue working with the freelancer for your additional needs. You'll be able to easily extend the project or start a new contract if you'd like more work done.
