Changing the project cost and deadline
For projects that are not yet awarded
For in progress projects
If the project is already in progress, editing the freelancer’s bid amount will change the project’s value. The modification can only be done on the freelancer's end, but to apply the changes, the employer has to confirm them.
1. Click Change My Bid from the Freelancers Awarded section on the project page.
2. You can request to edit the bid/project value and/or deadline. You can also include a message to your employer (i.e. describing the details of the adjustment).
3. Click Submit Request.
4. Click Submit Request again to confirm.
Once steps 1 through 4 are completed, the employer will be notified via the Dashboard about the request.
The employer has to agree to the requested modifications by clicking Accept on the change bid request card from the project page for the changes to be applied.
After the employer agrees to the requested changes, the freelancer will be notified of it via the Dashboard.
Project fee adjustments
If the new bid amount is higher than the original, both parties will be charged an additional project fee once the employer confirms the changes. The fee will be based on the difference between the bid amounts.
If the new bid amount is lower than the original, the project fees will stay the same.
