How does Crew secure funds for my project?
Before any member can start working on a Crew project, it’s mandatory for a project owner to fund the full project (or the first milestone, depending on the payment schedule) in Crew. We cannot guarantee a payout if the funds are not transferred in Crew.
The funds will stay in our secure payment account, and won’t be released until the work is completed and approved by the project owner. Knowing that the funds are in Crew gives project owners confidence that nobody is running away with their funds and that the work that they will be paying for will be done well. It also gives peace of mind to our members knowing that they aren’t getting hosed for hours of hard work.
For larger projects, we recommend splitting the project into milestones, but we give both parties the flexibility to set payment schedules however they prefer.
