0% fee when you bring your own client

Hello,

 

In May 2017 I received a message from Upwork with a special promotion with 0% fee when I bring my own client to Upwork (I am a Top rated freelancer) and I received an invitation linked to send it to my client for register and activate this 0% fee. A few days ago, I send it to my client and he registered and started a Upwork contract and now, when the contracted is just ended I realized that I have standard 20% fee. What to do in this situation? It's obvious that I was not intended to bring my client to pay 20% to Upwork.

 

Thank you!

Hi, 
I already brought my client to upwork more then 6 months ago, and i still have active contract with him. 

Do i qualify for 0% fee in this case?


Hello Ivan,

 

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,

Can anyone please share me the link so I can forward to my external clients so they can pay me through upwork with 0% fee. Btw I am already TR.

 

thanks

Hi Nina,

 

I'm Top Rated, I remember a long time ago I got the e-mail with the invitation link but I can't find it. Can you guys help? I'm interested in inviting a client and getting the 0% promotion.

 

Thank you.

Hi Francisco,

 

No worries, I've requested that a new link be sent to you so that you may invite your client.

~Nina

Hello,

 

I also need a link

Hi, I also cannot find the email that I received offering this. I'm a top worker. Is it still possible to bring a new to Upwork client for 0%??

Greetings,

Found this thread while trying to find the info about inviting new clients for 0% fee. I've received email about this a while ago but can't find it now. Could you re-send this email if this possibility is still available?

Hi Vladimir,

One of our team members will reach out to you with a new link that you can use to invite your clients.

Hello everyone!

I am a top-rated freelancer for several weeks now and I did not receive this message about the 0% fees for new customer I bring to Upwork...
Would it bepossible to get it as I might have a need for that quite urgently...

 

Many thanks!

Christine

Hello Christine,

I'd suggest that this is an entirely inneffective way to implement the outside client program. All of the threads on this topic are just cluttered with requests for this email.

 

Is there NOT an option for new clients to simply enter a freelancer's name/id # when they sign up??

A referred by with the email address of the freelancer should do the trick.

Hello Nina, My client and I are looking for solutions like upwork. Could you please share the 0% fee link to me and I will share it with my client to set up some projects.

Hi! Do the special offer by 0% fee, when bringing your own client from offline, available in new 2018 year?

Hi Pavlo,

 

Yes, the offer continues and is available for Top Rated and Rising Talent freelancers.

Hi Valeria,

 

How does one utilize this offer? Is there a special referral link we should use?

 

Edit: typo

Hello Anes,

 

Weโ€™ll email you your personal link shortly.  Thank you!

Hi all,

A client reached me through LinkedIn and offered me an online job, I asked him to hire me via upwork to guarantee my payments, and to be subjected to 0% fee since I am a top rated.

Please tell me how to do this since I searched for the promo but didn`t find it.

Best regards.

Hi Mohammed,

One of our team members will send you the link with detailed instructions on how to use over the next couple of days, thank you.

Hello! I would like a link to use to send clients to bring them to UpWork. Could you provide me with this link? And also, could you tell me if that link can be used for multiple clients, or will I need a new link for each new client?

Thank you!
