    While bidding to a project on freelancer there are some fields we have to fill like bid amount,proposal and milestone.
    What is the need of milestone,is it compulsory to give our milestone?
    What are the benefits of creating milestone on freelancer projects,is there some problem we have to face if we don't create our milestone?

    Demand for milestone is very important when project is large then that type of project is completed by a team not by the individual . So managing the team some money required before the project completion . Milestone also establish faith between company and employee . If you are a freelancer then milestone is very important .

    In freelancer milestone is very important, because there are some clients they not paid your money after work done. You can't do anything, if you not receive milestone. But if you have a milestone payment you can complain freelancer for that case. they help you in recovering your money through client.

    Milestone is the important for every employee, Because if you got a project from freelancer and done your project on time but not receive a milestone from Freelancer client.
    And your employee not pay for you for that project then you are no able to do complain to Freelancer. If you set a milestone with starting of the project that means any how you can take your money.

    Milestone payment is you get paid based on how much work you have completed over the course of the entire project instead of an upfront payment for the entire project. For example, you get 10% when you completed the first draft, another 10% when you completed the second draft and you will receive the full payment when you completed the job.

    I am hearing this first time about milestone, never know this type of freelancing exits. What I read on Freelancer website is we need to ask a upfront fee to hold by freelancer.com and once they have in advance payment we can proceed to do the work. You can read here further more about this milestone.

    Milestone establish confidentiality between recruiter and employee. It is very important in the freelancing project because here every thing done virtual . If recruiter provide some milestone then employee start their job happily. It is also important for managing the equipment for specific project that require some money. So freelancing guy manage these things very easily with the help of milestone.
