The freelancer or agency can accept or decline the offer, or ask for revisions. If they ask for revisions, you will be able to make updates to the offer and resend it. Once the offer is accepted by the freelancer or agency, they will be officially hired by you and will begin working for you hourly.
If you are doing a fixed project, the freelancer or agency assigned to you will be able to begin the work. If there are changes and you need another freelancer or agency, you will have 30 days to change your freelancer or agency.

How the payments are processed depends on whether the job is set up at a fixed price or at an hourly rate.
For fixed-price jobs, the client is able to divide the project into separate milestones (fund escrow and release escrow) and deposit funds for each deliverable.
The payments are held by Outsource.com until the work is completed and the client give permission to release the payments. For hourly work, the freelancer or agency will use our time management software.
A timesheet will be sent to the client daily and the client will be charged for work completed by the freelancer or agency during the previous week.

Also, Outsource.com account managers ensure that status reports are sent weekely to clients in order to ensure that the work is being completed to your satisfaction. For hourly jobs, the freelancer or agency will enter a short description whenever adding hours worked.
Once the last scheduled payment has been completed, you can close the job on the project page. Any outstanding funds that are owed for a job will still be paid to the freelancer [how?]. This will prevent the freelancer or agency from entering extra hours given to the job and will allow you to leave a review for the freelancer or agency.
Once your offer is sent to the freelancer or agency, and they accept, the first milestone will be automatically funded. This is why payment information must be given before the quote is sent to the freelancer or agency.

We take measure to ensure experts are available and reliable. However, in the unlikely case that a problem arises, Outsource.com will credit back the time billed to the client.
It is definitely possible to make arrangements and establish an agreement that is mutually beneficial for Outsource.com and client?
The client. Outsource.com’s business is connecting world-class experts to clients; we do not own intellectual property. Our contracts state that all work created by an Outsource.com expert is the property of the client.
Outsource.com enters into agreements with every member of the talent network [what is the talent network? The experts you have hired?]. Through these agreements, Outsource.com obtains ownership of the work created by the experts who work for you.
We then provide you with the intellectual property for the work that the Outsource.com talent creates for you under our client agreement. [This does not make sense? Outsource.com owns the work but not client does not? This is not entirely clear?] This arrangement has worked well for our clients for many years.
However, if you would like the expert into a direct agreement with you to allow for a direct transfer of intellectual property, we can work with you to allow for this.
But this needs to be defined more (refundable job – it is not laid out clearly on the website)
It depends on the specifications, design, or idea. We will ensure to define all the use cases, specifications, and design requirements, and provide a quote for work from the freelancer or agency.
