Hi All,
It really is an urgent need to find a solution to this very way .... Controversial payment pending ... our efforts must not be lost ... please put an end to this method
Thanks :)

You roll the dice Reda. It's a gamble. Payment pending is a red flag right off the bat.

Here's a few points that I suggest for being successful with payment pending contests: 
  1. Description: Has the buyer written a clear description of what the project involves? Unclear descriptions indicate a buyer that isn't that serious about their project.
  2. Questions/Answers: Does the buyer answer any designer questions in the comment section to elaborate on the scope of the work? Does the buyer answer private messages? 
  3. Entries: Does the buyer made a payment after the first few entries are submitted?
  4. Last login: Has the buyer logged their account and viewed the contest during the past day or two? Click the buyer profile to view their last login (see example below)

This is all fine and dandy, BUT why not make it where contest holders cant download files unless a certain percentage of prize money has been prepaid.  They would allow you to still have the Payment Pending process, but still hold contest holders accountable and not try to get free work out of us.
