Client Review Period

Hours within the weekly limit are invoiced to your clients on Monday. They have 5 days to review the work.

Security Period
Released to goLancer

goLancer funds available in goWallet.

Week 1

Week 2

Week 3

The review period provides a buffer for your clients to look over your Work Diary and make sure the tasks assigned are complete. This time is leveraged by both parties to ensure transparency for everyone regarding the scope of work that was executed.
There is a security period where clients are billed and the payment is processed. If the payment fails to go through for any reason, we have a measure in place which involves reaching out to the client to retrieve the funds. In extreme cases, legal action and / or a collection agency may be used.

Aside from hourly contracts, there are fixed contracts for a set rate.

No matter which contract is agreed upon, clients have the ability to send bonuses to their freelancers at any time.

Get Paid Even Faster with Payday Advance

Get a cash advance when you need it prior to the completion of your current project.
Need money in a pinch? Once approved, hourly goLancers have access to instant cash, even during the review period. We believe you should have your money the moment you want it.
So we’ve created a system where you can bypass the review period and get your money out whenever you want for a small fee.
