You have the flexibility to decide whether you want to work on a project even after you submit a proposal. Whether you’ve accepted other projects or changed your mind for any reason, you’re free to withdraw a proposal you made to a client’s post.
You can withdraw your proposal at any point 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
- Go to Find Work › Proposals
- Find the proposal you want and select the title
- Scroll down and select Withdraw Proposal
