What is the Milestone Payment™ System?

The Milestone Payment™ System is a special feature that allows controlled payments to be made for the awarded freelancer on a project.

When a freelancer requests for a Milestone Payment, the employer can create one by depositing funds for it. We will then hold such funds until the employer and the freelancer agree that the funds should be released to the freelancer or until both parties have concluded the process of the Dispute Resolution Service.

Once an employer releases a Milestone Payment, the employer acknowledges that their awarded freelancer has completed the work fully and most satisfactorily. Freelancer.com will then disburse the Milestone Payment to the freelancer.

If an employer does not approve of the freelancer's work or the freelancer requests payment to an unwilling employer, the parties can access the Dispute Resolution Services.
