It’s simple. Clients want to pay for results. Freelancers want to get paid for their work. We have payment protections for both.
Elance Escrow Protection
For Fixed-Price jobs, Elance Escrow Protection allows clients to pre-fund work and release funds as freelancer milestones are met. Clients can rest assured that they'll be able to inspect work delivered before they release funds from Escrow. Escrow Protection also gives freelancers the comfort of knowing that a project is funded before they begin working.
Elance Work View™ Protection
Elance Work View Payment Protection protects both the freelancer and the client. Freelancers are assured they will get paid for the hours they work while using Work View™. This protection extends to clients who can verify they're paying only for hours worked by the freelancer.
Disputes happen rarely. When they do occur, Elance is ready to help with dispute resolution, working with both the client and freelancer to get their issues resolved.
