Backup projects are Contests created automatically by the system when there is a delay in a Booking. They come at no extra cost for the client; we create them to make sure the client has enough options to choose from when there has been an unexpected setback in the original project.
All Contests, including backup Contests, receive several entries from which the client will be able to choose the one they like best.
When a backup project is created, the initial Booking remains open for the Pro to complete. Pros are paid for all deliverables they submit and pass quality control, including backup projects.
- The original Booking is completed after the expected time; the client approves it, and the backup up project is be discarded.
- An entry from the backup project is approved by the client; the Pro crafts the complete deliverable, and the original booking is disposed.
