Re: 0% fee 'Bring your own client'

Susanne, the payment methods your clients wish to use generally carry a payment processing fee with them. Depending on the system, that fee may be charged to the purchaser or recipient, but someone pays between 2% and 4%, on average, for that transaction.

 

If you are concerned that the payment processing fee would deter clients, you could offer to reduce your fee by that amount. But, I suspect that many clients would be happy to pay that small processing fee in order to avoid the complications of trying to work out how to get payment to you.

If I get again a client with this problem I might try it, Tiffany - but look, they already pay the charge when transferring the payment to Upwork instead of to me directly. Means, there would be two charges.

Hi Susanne,

 

To clarify, your client will only be charged for the payment processing fee I mentioned. Since service fee won't be applied, there's no second change for your client or yourself.

Hi Isabelle,

 

This is my personal experience that i am sharing with you. If you bring client to upwork i mean your personal client. Upwork will give folish reason that they inspect that client was sign up before this was offered and bla bla. They will not give you exact reason. And this is just attractive scheme they dont really implement it. They will reject your request saying that that client was previosly engaged. But they wont say you on basis of what they saying that and hence they willl get 20% from your personal client earning.

 No, you are not eligible, as you are not top rated (yet)

 

So all the fees will be the standard fees.

Hi Muhammad Waseem,

 

Bring Your Own Client program is currently only available for Top Rated and Rising Talent freelancers. You can still send a link to your profile to your client and they can sign up for an Upwork account and hire you for a contract. You'll be paying standard Service Fee.

Hi there, I would like to bring my own client on UpWork and I want to get informed about the program you have for paying a 0% fee for bringing new clients. I know I need to have a personalized invitation link so I can send it to my client. Can you provide it for me?

 

Thank you.
