Good points  ... and another shining example of why Upwork really would benefit from hiring a competent freelancer to edit and/or rewrite communications PRIOR to releasing them.



Does this latest move of Upwork have anything to do with the COI issue raised by another website?  I have read on another thread how serious the editing scenario can be at this time.  I wasn't aware of the issue so my initial take on the email was that probably this is to find out how many "best" freelancers are engaged in circumvention.

Still no answers... posting here again so that the Mods can see it. I'm a little wary of this 0% offer.

I would imagine one benefit for Upwork is that if a client has hired one freelancer, they are open to hiring others. So if I bring a copywriting client to Upwork, they may hire other types of freelancers or another writer. I think I would only use the BYOC service if it were my client's preference to do so.

I would really like to find out more about this option. I have regularly problems with US-clients who don't know how to transfer money to a bank account - always wishing to pay over credit card or PP.

If this service would be free for them as well as for me it might be an option in case I get another of those cases - last year it was a big law firm and in the end the client left because he did not know how to pay me (weird, I know, but that's how it happened).

Hi Susanne,

 

Thanks for sharing your interest in the program. Client brought to Upwork through this program will need to pay the 2.75% payment processing fee when they make a payment to a freelancer. If you like, we can send you an email with more details and a personal invitation link you can share with your off Upwork clients?

Hi Vladimir,

 

thank you - but if my client would have to pay for it, not interesting.
