Releasing Milestone Payments
We recommend releasing Milestone Payments only after your freelancer completes the assigned tasks and submits the final output. When a Milestone is released, the money is transferred to the account of your freelancer and can no longer be returned.
To release a Milestone Payment, follow these steps:
1. Go to your project's Payments tab.
2. From the Existing Milestone Payments section, click Release across the Milestone that you want to release.
3. Confirm the amount you want to release.
4. Click Release.
5. You will see a confirmation saying that released Milestones can no longer be returned. Tick the checkbox, and click Release Payment to confirm.
Note that in some cases we are required to process the release of the payment, which typically takes up to 24 hours before the funds appear in the freelancer's account.
