Once you have moved forward in hiring a freelancer, it is very important as a professional courtesy to decline other freelancers who submitted proposals to your posting. This will also keep your postings and projects pipeline organized.
Declining a proposal or multiple proposals
Multiple pending proposals selected with Decline and Send Message buttons at the right
You can opt to decline proposals on a case-by-case basis or to decline multiple proposals at once. To do so, select the applicable proposals in your posting, and hit the Decline button.
We highly recommend that you send a message alongside your decline explaining to a freelancer why you decided to decline the proposal. This will give them a chance to understand your editorial vision, and allow them to improve their future proposals.
