Once they make the purchase, your delivery clock begins. You can deliver your project either via messaging system or via video system depending on your service type. There is a real time notification system as well as project status updates throughout the delivery window. Once delivered, your clients can ask for revision or accept their delivery. You can provide revision free of cost or at certain price which you can describe during your job post. If you provide revision for free, you can also write that on your job post.
