Step 5: Hiring, Payment & Project Management

Following Step 4: Choosing a Freelancer, you’ve picked out a talented freelancer, and confirmed that they are ready, willing and capable. You are ready to hire. It's time to make sure there’s a copy of your agreed terms in your shared messages, and select “hire”.

Make an upfront Vault payment to secure your freelancer, and ensure you get the final deliverable you've asked for by choosing when to release payment. Vault payments are automatically released after 90 days.

Once the initial Vault payment has been issued, you can work with freelancers flexibly by allowing them to issue bills through the platform. Review the attached Statement of Work, and select Pay Bill when ready.

Finally, you can now hire multiple freelancers on the same job. Payments for each freelancer work in the same format as with a single freelancer. You’ll also have the option to end a hire with a single individual, whilst still continuing to work with other freelancers.
