Anekh Jobs offers a special feature called Milestone Payments to ensure that payments to projects are made securely within the site. Milestone Payments can be created by the client for their awarded freelancer. This shows the client’s willingness to pay the freelancer which, in turn, encourages the freelancer to do the job well.
Before they work on projects, freelancers can request to have a Milestone Payment created for them as assurance of payment. It is the client who will decide on whether to create the requested Milestone Payment or not.
Once a Milestone Payment is created (funded), the money will not be transferred to the freelancer just yet. It will remain pending until the client releases it. Clients are advised to only release the Milestone Payment if they are completely satisfied with the delivered work and all deliverables have been submitted and up-to- standard. When all tasks are satisfactory and the client releases the Milestone Payment, it will be transferred to the freelancer's account balance on the site.
Note that only the client can create a Milestone Payment and make the release. Conversely, only the freelancer can cancel and return the Milestone Payment.
If a client does not approve of the freelancer's work or the freelancer requests payment to an unwilling employer, the parties can access the Dispute Resolution Services.
