    • If you are pleased and ready to accept it, click Yes to Approve the Final Delivery
    • If you aren't pleased, click No, I'm not ready yet
      Along with a text box to explain further why you selected I'm Not Ready Yet, you'll have options to select:
      • I need a revision
        This is if the freelancer needs to revise or change something with the delivery.
      • I need more time to review
        When you need more time to review the delivery.
        Note: The customer can add up to 5 days per delivery, and can make multiple requests.
        Not all requests need to be submitted at once.
      • Resolution center
        If you are dissatisfied with the delivery or need help resolving an issue, you can visit the Resolution Center for customers.

  5. Rate your experience and leave a public review(if you wish to do so).
    Reviews can be provided up to 14 days after the order is marked as Complete. For programing & tech the time frame is 30 days to leave a review. Some SEO sub -categories will also allow 30 days.

Public reviews

As a customer, you can add or remove a work sample for your public review.

A work sample is an image that appears on the freelancer's Live Portfolio and is available to the public.

The work sample shows up in the form of a thumbnail view of the freelancer's delivered work and is shown on their Live Portfolio within the Gig page.

To show or remove the delivered work in your review:

  1. Make sure that the box next to Show the delivered work in my review is selected.
    Note: The () is on by default, and the work sample will be displayed automatically.

  2. To remove the work sample from your review, click the () in the middle of the work sample thumbnail.

  3. The thumbnail image will be replaced by a (+).
    You can add the work sample again by clicking the +.

  4. Click Send Feedback when you're ready.
