Each milestone is funded individually and requires a payment to be deposited to kick off work.
Here’s how it works: The hiring client will deposit payment at the beginning of each milestone. Payments are held securely by Stripe until the deliverables are approved by the client, then funds will be sent to the freelancer once deliverables are approved. If the client doesn’t the deliverables within 72 hours of submission, Contra will automatically release funds to the freelancer. All subsequent milestone payments will need to be deposited by the Client before proceeding to the next milestone.
Contra sends automatic communications to make sure everyone is aware of when payments are due.
