For a smooth project flow, DhuMall suggests the Project Owner and Freelancer check the Status regularly to avoid conflicts or misunderstandings at a later stage. This will ensure the timely delivery of quality work and seamless payment.
By accepting the project, an agreement is established with the terms of engagement between the Freelancer and the Project Owner. It defines the scope and payment terms. The agreement can be edited at any time and only come into effect once both parties agree upon discussion at the Dashboard. DhuMall recommends the Freelancer starts work only after both parties have accepted the agreement. A binding agreement in place helps reduce the chances of a dispute.
