When freelancer submits the project, client wants revision several times. They will not pay for that project. Because they want free project but freelancer will not know about this. Sometimes freelancer contact in the support, but most of the case nothing happens. Because online marketplace authority always support to clients. They don’t want to miss their clients. Because clients are their assets. If clients don’t post job, then authority can’t earn from them. So clients are their first priority.

Maintain a good relationship with him. Besides work, you can ask details about him. Don’t try to be so much friendly at first time. Some clients don’t like this. They only know work and work. So be aware about this.
