You can withdraw your proposal until you are offered a contract. After that, you’ll need to turn down the offer or end the contract. You are never obligated to accept a project you don’t want. You won’t be penalized by Upwork for withdrawing a proposal or declining an offer.

To withdraw a proposal

  1. Go to Find Work  Proposals
  2. Find the proposal you want and click the title
  3. Scroll down and select Withdraw Proposal
