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This feature is missing in the new interface or at least the article in help is no longer valid.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?
I did not know there was a BYO process. I asked a freelancer to join Upwork so that I could officially hire her. I can see her profile here but it says "This freelancer is not available for job invitations." How can I get this corrected?
I am aware of that now. However, the issue I am having is that I just told the freelancer to join I did not follow the correct process. She has now created an account and I can view it but is is marked as "This freelancer is not available for job invitations". I need to get this corrected.

Is there a number I should call?
Can a client bring his own freelancer to Upwork? If yes, then what if the freelancer tried to submit an application to Upwork but got denied, is there a way he can still hire that freelancer in Upwork?
