Can I modify my bid on a project I already accepted?
Yes, you can now change your bid amount and the number of days for project completion even after accepting a project. We just need to wait for your employer's approval for the same before it takes place.

How do I deliver a project?
You may deliver a project by any method agreed upon by you and the Service Buyer. Depending on the project type, options may include upload to the Buyer’s hosting account, email, and more. You may, of course, use the Freelancer.com Private Message board to deliver individual files as well. We recommend using our Milestone Payment System to ensure payment on delivery of the finished project.
How do I submit a bid?
Before placing your first bid, we recommend reading 10 Tips for Writing an Effective Bid.

Enter your bid amount, the number of days for delivery, and any necessary details, then click the “Place Bid” button.
