Billing Agreement (for automatic charges)
When you deposit or verify via credit card or PayPal, a billing agreement between your payment source and Freelancer.com is created. The agreement authorizes us to automatically draw payments from your payment source to pay your transactions on the site. This makes it easier for you to complete your transactions as you will no longer need to manually deposit anymore.
The following transactions are automatically covered with a billing agreement:
• Taking skills tests
• Project fee payments
• Membership plan renewals
Keeping your billing agreement active is strongly recommended for ease of your payments in using the Freelancer.com site. Here is a video explaining it more in detail:
You can have multiple billing agreements by verifying or depositing funds using more than one payment method. And, you can manage (set a preferred billing agreement, add a new one, cancel) all of them in one place -- in your Payment & Financials Settings page.
