Can I change my project budget amount after the project has already started? How?
Once a proposal has been sent by a prolancer and accepted by a Hirer, the funds for that specific project will be ‘locked’ in the project escrow account. Neither the Hirer nor the prolancer could withdraw or change the funds without the approval of the other party. However, depending on the project requirements, the prolancer may decide to ask for additional funds to be deposited to the project escrow account, and/or a Hirer can ask for a refund for whole, or some of the funds.
Please note that the Hirer will still have to pay the prolancer for the work that has already been completed.
As a reminder, all users of our Outsource services will be charged an outsourcing fee of 10% (which is deducted from the project payment budget).
However, if you are requesting a refund because the prolancer has not fulfilled their commitments, you will not be charged any service fees. Please click here for more details.
