Credits are how payments are made on the BLEND platform. Each credit has a monetary value depending on the client's home currency. 1 credit = $0.01 USD (when converted to other currencies exchange fees may apply).
The payment for delivered projects is received in credits and it has 3 stages: potential, pending, and earned credits. You can see the status of your credits in your Dashboard -> My Balance tab:
 When the status of a project becomes "Completed", the base credits move to the Pending section.
Note: a project is "completed" 7 days after the translation is uploaded OR after the last comment on the Discussion board. Credits for the dynamic type of projects do not appear in the Pending section.
Note: Credits deducted from escrow - credits that were withdrawn from the project's payment due to the justified quality issue within 30 days from the project completion.
Important: after 24 months of no activity in your profile, the account becomes inactive, and available credits are removed and canceled.
