I have a client , i got him outside of upwork .. i wanted to create a direct contract with him to get paid , i found out that he is an existing upwork client.
so should he create a job and hire me instantly by invitation and pay me ?

He can just go to your profile and click on "Hire".
A Direct Contract won't be possible, so the usual fees apply.
I recently see that Upwork takes a 3% fee for me as a client.
I want to ask other clients here if they have encountered this situation, as Upwork marketizes itself without fee for direct contracts clients.
We will be asking clients who start new Direct Contracts to begin paying a small processing fee on the payments they make to their freelancer(s). We are currently building this option into our site, and testing it out with select Direct Contracts to start. In the future, a payment processing fee for clients will be added to all new Direct Contracts. When that occurs, we will be sure to update all communications, Help articles, etc., to share the fee amount that we decide upon. Thank you.
