Fixed-Price to Hourly
To switch an active, fixed-price contract to an hourly contract:
- Go to Freelancers and find the contract in the list.
- From the Actions list, click View contract.
- Click Switch to Hourly.
- Fill out the form to close your fixed-price contract, set up a new hourly contract, and confirm that you understand what changing terms means. The new hourly contract will begin at 00:00 UTC.
Hourly to Fixed-Price
It is not possible to convert a contract from hourly to fixed-price. If you and your freelancer would like to go from an hourly to fixed-price contract, simply end the hourly job and rehire the freelancer, changing the offer terms to a fixed-price contract. If do so, please discuss the new payment terms with your freelancer beforehand to avoid any surprises.
