Hi guys, Just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience to mine over the past week. I signed up to freelancer and started to bid on a few projects - eventually I won a project to complete some work for $260 (160 pounds). The guy was clear what he wanted and so we started the process of designing the 4 different banners he wanted for a conference. Today he said to me he didn't want to go ahead because he decided that he was going to work with another freelancer. Overall I completed 3 hours of work for nothing, with the exception to humiliation. How can I prevent this from happening? Can I really charge someone before I have even started to do some work? Thanks in advance.
