Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a sim enter the freelance career. Pick up a gig and try to complete it.
What happens when the bug occurs? I complete everything until it comes to finishing the gig and receiving payment. There is notification that the work has been accepted but no payment, and the gig does not end. This is more frustrating when it is also taking an immense amount of time to get the work accepted.
What do you expect to see? Previously, the work is accepted; there is the notification of work being accepted as well a second notification from the client expressing gratitude. Then my sims gets paid and the gig ends.

@SheriGRhas been trying to help with this.

I have the exact same issue.

I'm new to Sims 4 (though started Sims with Sims 1 unless you count the SNES Sim City!)

Anyway I chose the Freelancer Writer track and thought, "oh, I guess they mail me a check or something." so I finished a couple more of the same "Co-author of Children's Bedtime Stories" (4 of them) with no pay.

 

I installed a Mod that was listed as a temporary fix to this, it did not fix it and I quit the "Co-author of Children's Bedtime Stories" and did one other one with no pay.

 

I quit that Freelancer job because I needed money, but now my Sim Callum knows what it's like to be an unwitting unpaid intern!

 

I bought it through Steam, but have "Dine Out" and "Kids Stuff" (simply because it was free) through EA Play Pro.

 

Thank you. Be well.

My freelancer career won't work!

★★★ Novice

I have a freelancer who is a programmer. I got him a gig, finished all his requirments and even though they all had check marks it wouldn't turn in! I got frustrated so I switched his freelance specialty since in a different household I had a very successful freelancer in the writing career. Did the same thing, when I turned in the book I got the notification that it had been approved but I got no check mark and I have no clue how to fix it, HELP!

★★ Guide

did someone mention the Plopsy Bug aswell? ( if it is a bug) it also came with the September update and shows no expire date by hovering over the item when listed. perhaps it is not even listed although the background colour change and the plopsy icon shows up, anyways no one responds to buy any item..

I've had a few people buy things on Plopsy and sent them off.  No expire date though.  I think in every 5 things listed only 1 sells.

I'm more bothered by the freelance career being broken though.  My poor dude is running out of money
