When a client submits a request to bring their own freelancers our team will review it and respond back with the results. Please keep in mind that not all requests are accepted, thank you.
The fees, including initial 20% seemed to apply when we brought our own freelancers. That doesn't make any sense. I'm hoping that's a mistake as no way we can use this platform if that's case. Sliding scale is for freelancers to encourage them to work with multiple clients. BYO should be very low.
Thank you for sharing your concern. Freelancers who join Upwork via Bring Your Own Freelancer program will be charged the standard Upwork Service Fee. Most clients talk with their freelancers to negotiate contract terms before sending an invitation, taking any fees into consideration.
This feature is missing in the new interface or at least the article in help is no longer valid.
How do I find the option to invite someone from outside world?
