I posted on here a couple of weeks ago. I was just trying to confirm that even though my personal link doesn't  show my image and looks like a general form for signing up I'd still get the 0% on fees for my new client that I invited to the platform?

Sorry for the repeated message, first I assumed that Vladimir's answer was referring to me too, but now that my client is signing up I just wanted to double check if everything is okay.

Hello Lidija,


Yes. You will still have the 0% fee for your new clients invited on Upwork. Simply follow the same instructions given to you before and you'll be able to have your 0% fee for the said client. Thank you.

Hi, I planned to bring a new client to the Upwork but he registered on Upwork before I could give him my invitation link. He didn't start my contract yet or any other contracts. Is it still possible to get 0% fee for bringing new client? Thanks!

Hello Danko,


Unfortunately, this discount only applies to any client you bring that is entirely new to Upwork. We cannot honor the 0% service fee if they already have an existing account on Upwork. Thank you.

Hi Ryan, the client is completely new to the Upwork but he registered the account directly without asking me first for directions. He didn't post any jobs yet, or higher anyone. So its fresh account one or two days old.  Is there anything we can do in this situation? Thanks!

Hi, just wanted to ask if the 0% fee still applies for new clients we bring to upwork and if so, what are the steps we should follow?

Hi Nina, 

Could I get the same instructions or email to invite new client on Upwork?

Hi Pavel, 

Please know that the Bring Your Own Client to Upwork promo is only available to Top Rated Freelancers. Once you're part of the Top Rated program, you should be able to bring your client's to take advantage of the 0% fees.
