Choose between an hourly rate contract or a fixed cost contract and then fill in the relevant information based on the contract you have chosen.

Hourly: Hourly contracts are based on a client and freelancer agreeing on an hourly rate during the interview process, then having the freelancer log their working hours in the goLance goMeter desktop application.
Fixed: Instead of working on an hourly basis and logging hours to the goMeter desktop application, fixed-price contracts work based on one or more payment milestones. Payments of milestones can be set up for certain times during a project.
