  • Whether you’re a freelancer or a client, you can be assured that payments made through Getdone are safe, timely, and hassle-free. That’s because Getdone requires all payments to go through our platform and offers Getdone Payment Protection for both hourly and fixed-price contracts.

    Escrow helps ensure clients get the work asked for and freelancers get paid for work completed.

    If a client or freelancer suggests that you accept payment or pay them outside of Getdone, report it to us immediately. Our staff will investigate and take action as appropriate.

    Sending or receiving payment directly is considered circumvention, and is a violation of Getdone's Terms of Service unless an opt-out fee is paid. Engaging in circumvention can result in account suspension and costly penalties
