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.
Solved! Go to Solution.
This will be for all contracts with the client, indefinitely.

I have been recently notified that I am now a 'Top Rated' Upwork freelancer but I didn't receive any invitation link in order to benefit from the %0 fee. What should I do to receive this invitation link?
Congrats on becoming Top Rated! I'll share your details with our team and you should receive a personal link and more information about the program via email soon. Thank you!
I think it's been about two weeks since I got an email that I qualify for this promo, but I haven't received a personal invitaion link yet. Could you, please, check if there's any issue ?
Thank you 🙂
A few months ago, I noticed that you were offering 0% Commission if we decide to bring an existing client on Upwork.
My question is: Can I bring an existing client on Upwork without having to pay the 20% Fees? If the answer is yes, then how can I do that?
Thank you in advance!
Hi Mihai Marcel,
I have escalated your account information to the team so that they can get in touch with you with your personal link and more information about this program.
Note that if this client isn't already on Upwork and you've received the BYOC link, you as a freelancer will have 0% service fee applied on earnings you receive on contracts with this client going forward. Your client will still be charged the 2.75% payment processing fee.
If you or your Client aren't meeting those requirements, Client still can hire you for a contract, while you'll be paying standard Service Fee.
I've shared your contact information with the team so that they can get in touch with you with your personal link, and more information about the program.
I am top rated and I'd like to invite a new client to Upwork.
How I can get my invitation link to also apply for a reduced fee?
Actually, just sharing my profile link isn't a good experience for my client, is there another way to get the client direct to propose an offer?
Our team will send you the link that your client will need to sign up through to have 0% fee on your contracts.. Once the client has signed up on Upwork will be able to hire you directly from your profile or invite you on their job posting, thank you.
