What is a retainer?


A Retainer is an amount of money a client pays to guarantee a flexie stays bound to work only on their project for a set period of time. In addition, the Retainer allows the client to use the flexie profile to bid on external contracts.

How is the retainer amount set?

Clients can set the retainer based on a fixed amount or after negotiation with the flexie.


Sometimes, the client pays a retention bonus to the flexie at the time of the final milestone payment. Regardless of the amount and type of the retention payment, the Flexie Bench takes the retention payment as an escrow payment in advance. When the project is completed, the flexie gets the retention payment.
