1. Go to the project’s page.
2. On the Proposals tab, locate the freelancer whom you wish to award the project to.
3. Click Award on the freelancer’s bid card.
If your project is an hourly one, setting up weekly billing first is required before you can award your project to a freelancer.
If your project is fixed-price, you will have three options when awarding: (1) set up minimum Milestone Payment which is only 20% of the project budget, (2) set up the freelancer's suggested Milestone Payment, or (3) set up Milestone Payments later and pay only for Project Fee for the meantime.
4. Review the billing details, and click Award to finish.
If you wish to award more than one freelancer, go back to the Proposals tab, and click Award on the chosen freelancer's bid card.
