How do I know how much I've paid to each freelancer?

That still doesn't give you your "lifetime spend" per freelancer in one spot (which freelancers can see per client, so I don't know why we can't easily see that information) and also isn't very helpful if you have long-term freelancers (most of mine are two years or more). So while that gives clients who haven't been keeping their own records a way to start doing so, it still doesn't easily show clients their lifetime spend.

 

Edited to add: Also, your screenshot shows personal info about your freelancer and their earnings. You probably shouldn't be posting that publicly.

The solution only shows weekly earnings, not lifetime, as far as I can see. My company also pays the Upwork fee so freelancers earn the actual quoted amount and we would like to know what level some of our long time writers are on. I contacted chat at Upwork and the person there told me to come here and post because she asked her supervisor and they did not know how to do this...said there was not currently a way. Really?

 

 


You can see lifetime earnings, just select the date the freelancer started to date.

EDIT: There is an easier way, just find your freelancer's contract

Thanks for the info Natasha, that's really useful. Several of my freelancers have multiple contracts, so either I need to use the first method you posted (by date) or the second and add up for each contract. So it's still not as easy as it is for freelancers to see (I believe) but it's there if you go hunting. I still recommend keeping your own records in any case.

 Yes, not as easy. Freelancers can easily see lifetime billing with each client

It would be great if they would add it to clients report  -  Lifetime billing with each freelancer.

That's actually a very generous thing to do.

Thank you all for all of the suggestions. The challenge is that this is a long-term freelancer, as someone else mentioned and it just seems like there should be an easier way...but this should work, for now.

 

Really appreciate the input! Smiley Happy
