Agency VS Freelancer account Contracts

Hello Upwork,

 

I am a non exclusive member of an agency on upwork. So I like to have some contracts on my own freelancer account and some as an agency member. However, the last two offers for jobs I applied on my own account have been sent to me as an agency member. Is this the doing of my clients or is it now automatic that I get my contracts in the agency?

 

Kindly enlighten me and show me how to fix this.

 

Thank you

Hi Rebecca,

 

As a non-exclusive member of an Agency, you're able to Change Default Team. This option you'll find under your settings - my teams, after changing it the offers will not be accepted under the agency by default.

 

Let us know if you need any further assistance.

 

Thank you

Thank you so much, I have changed settings and I hope it works with the other offers. I have one more question which is nothing to do with this title. I have billed a client over $500 but I am still being charged the 20% upwork fee. Does it not change immediately?

Hi Rebecca,

 

Since that contract is under the Agency, you should discuss this with the Agency owner or the Admin.

 

Generally: We calculate agency service fees based on total agency billings with a client across all contracts. This means that all agency contracts any of the agency’s freelancers have had with a single client count towards an agency’s lifetime billings with that client. 

 

Thank you.
