Please note: The resolution center is unavailable for completed and canceled orders.

  4. View and/or withdraw your open disputes via your Order page.

Get an order update

Customers can message freelancers for an update on their order before the Gig is complete. In this case, the Freelancer has up to 48 hours to respond and provide an update.

If the freelancer doesn’t reply within 48 hours, the order will remain active, however, your customer's dispute will be closed.

Ask your freelancer to cancel an order

When you request to cancel an order, your cancellation request and comments are sent directly to the freelancer. Both you or your freelancer will receive the other party's feedback once a dispute or request for cancellation has been submitted.
Freelancers have up to 48 hours to accept or decline your dispute requests.

Note: Disputes submitted through the Resolution Center are sent to the other party and can be viewed on the Order page. They are NOT sent to Customer Support, nor are they notified of the dispute.
 

Open disputes

If there is already an open Resolution Center request within the same order, you must withdraw your dispute and then cancel the order.

If you would like to cancel an order with an open dispute, you'll need to withdraw your dispute (via the Orders page), and then you'll be able to cancel the order.

You won’t be able to open a new dispute if your dispute is in the process of resolving one of these issues:

  • Requested to Extend delivery date
  • Asked to Get an order update
  • Requested to Cancel order

Forced cancellation

If a freelancer is late with their delivery—and there was no mutual agreement about extending the delivery date—after 24 hours of the expected delivery, you can cancel without approval from the freelancer.
