0% fee 'Bring your own client'

Just got that mail... that sounds like a great thing, and i will be sure to use it when i get a chance.

 

But what bugs me: how do you plan to deal with the people who would hire themselves to gain success score, opening fake accounts of clients? It will be so cheap to do so (just some foreign exchange commissions, or maybe not even that when using U.S. payment methods) that it will be tempting to do so. Won't we soon face a whole new brand of fakes?

 

What i suggest: don't include contracts with these 0% clients into JSS calculation, top rated/rising talent, and otherwise take means to make sure they don't help a profile stand out.

Hi Goran,

I would like to introduce one of my client on upwork.com. Please adise how can I get the invitation link so my client can register and my fees can get waived off? In this case do my client need to pay any fees or for the both sides it's 0 comission for the first deal ?

 

Thanks in advance ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hi Evgeniy,

 

Bring Your Own Client program is currently only available for Top Rated and Rising Talent freelancers.

 

If you are not meeting those requirements, 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.

 

Thank you.

Great, thanks a lot ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi, I'm a Top Rated and I would like to invite one of my client on Upwork. I'm going through my emails and trying to look for an email from Upwork with the subject line โ€œGet 0% on fees when you invite your clients to Upworkโ€. But, I don't remember if I have received that or not. But, I remember the time when I became a Top Rated I was getting this Notification on my account/profile for a couple of days. Well, I need this link asap! ๐Ÿ™‚

Unfortunately with a JSS of 80% and no top rated or rising talent status you don't qualify.

Hi Radim,

 

Bring Your Own Client program is currently only available for Top Rated and Rising Talent freelancers! If you are not meeting those requirements, 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, is this still an option to bring a client to Upwork without any fee obligations on my part, or the client's?

Yes, Lilly, this is still available!


However, I would like to clarify that the client will still be charged the client payment processing fees. I'll go ahead and share your account information with the team, and they will get in touch with you with your personal link and more information about the program.
