How do I get paid?

Back To All FAQ

The first step to getting paid is landing a job by submitting proposals. Once a job is awarded to you and you accept it, you will have to generate an invoice for the amount that the client needs to pay. The client can then fund the escrow with the amount of invoice raised. There are numerous methods available for clients to add funds to their account.

Once the contractor completes the work and requests payment for a milestone, the client has 15 days to review the work and either approve the release of funds from escrow or dispute the request.  If no action is taken by day 15, the payment is marked as “Overdue” and a reminder is sent to both parties.  If the client has still not made payment 30 days after the release request, funds held in escrow are released to the contractor.  Work-n-Hire will send multiple notifications alerting the client that the 30 day deadline is nearing. Alternately client can himself release the amount from escrow.

Once you have funds in your Work N Hire account and now you want to withdraw funds to your personal account all you have to do is add a withdrawal method and send us a withdrawal request.

The following withdrawal methods is currently supported by Work-N-Hire
NEFT Transfer – Direct online transfer to your bank account.
Cheque Transfer – Getting a cheque sent to your address.
Paypal Transfer – Getting funds in your Paypal account in USD.

    What is the guarantee that the payment will be done?

    • worknhire says:

      The payment is guaranteed with the use of Escrow. But if the client doesn’t fund the escrow, the payment is not guaranteed. In case the client refuses to pay with Escrow funds, the contractor can file dispute and get the money released to themselves from Work N Hire.

  2. Anirudh says:

    If I complete the work as per the job assignment but the client makes frivilous reasons not to release the escrow amount.. what is my protection against such fraud?

    • worknhire says:

      Anirudh, In case you complete the work and client makes frivolous reasons for not releasing the escrow amount, you can file a dispute and Work N Hire Dispute team will handle the matter and provide a final decision which will be binding for both parties.

      • bhagyashree says:

        and how will i as a contractor prove my side that the work has done…because my client makes most of conversations through google hangouts…and not on worknhire chat room …???

        • worknhire says:

          Hi Bhagyashree,

          We accept chat transcripts from hangouts as well as skype conversations or even email conversations for that matter for dispute resolution.Ideally you should keep most of the messages related to disputes on WorknHire Messages section.

      • Kumar Vivek says:

        @worknhire:disqus After filing the Dispute is any client is able to give the Feedback for the Job. If it is so then i think this process should be changed.

  6. Tensi says:

    Please bear with me, after I completed my studies, I would like to
    become a freelancer, most freelance sites that I have visited in the
    past require you to have a credit card (maybe I haven’t looked enough).
    But these withdrawal methods mentioned in this page don’t seem to
    require credit cards (NEFT and Cheque transfer). I need to make sure
    that if I have an account at SBI (net banking) only without credit card,
    am I qualify to find work?

    • worknhire says:

      Hi, You can use WorknHire for finding work even without having a credit card. If you have an SBI account that should be sufficient for you to withdraw your earnings from WorknHire.

  7. Gopal Shukla says:

    There is no paypal transfer available while adding payment method. Please let how can I move my funds to paypal account.

    • worknhire says:

      Hi Gopal, Paypal doesn’t support payment from an Indian account to an Indian paypal account and hence the withdrawal method for Paypal is not listed to avoid confusions. You can very well use NEFT/RTGS or Cheque withdrawals to avoid the additional fees that will be charged by Paypal on your end.

  8. veena says:


    could you let me know how do i send you a withdrawal request?? i am not able to find the link.

    • worknhire says:

      Hi Veena,

      You can find the option of withdrawal under the Payment in the top menu. You will need to add a withdrawal method before you are able to place a fund withdrawal request.

  12. Neha says:

    Hi i am working on a project and i marked an invoice void by mistake, what can i do to undo it or what is meant by void invoice.

    • worknhire says:

      Hi Neha, Marking a invoice void means the invoice is not applicable and the client doesn’t need to pay for it. You cannot undo the process. What you can do is create another invoice of the same amount as the previous one in your billing and invoices section.
