Do I have buyer protection if the project takes 3 months?

Hey guys,

I am about to hire app developer. He mentioned that it would take him 2-2 months to fulfill the order.

My question is, am I still protected in case he won’t fulfill my order as he supposed to?

Thanks in advance!

Thank you so much! So basically 3 months means it’s a scam and I won’t be protected?

What if it takes 3 weeks, I have a protection?

I suggest you take the time to read the Terms of Service, Payment Terms, and Community Standards yourself, so that you know what protections you do and do not have.

I suggest you look into milestone orders. (This article is directed at sellers, but still informative and helpful for buyers:
