You’ll negotiate payment terms with each employer on a job-by-job basis. Some employers may pay you a 50% deposit up front, and 50% upon completion of the job, while others may pay only after the job is finished. In either case, the cost of the job will be held in a private escrow account by drivefool and will be released when the employer approves payment. Payments will always be processed through drivefool (never directly with the employer) We support most major digital payment platforms for payouts.
