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, Upwork team! I am inviting a new client and shared my link(that I've got from you last September). She has signed up, and we are in the hiring prosses. But I am not sure when to contact you regarding 0% fee activation, is it after she hires me or after she funds a milestone. Also, please let me know to whom I should write for activation as I don't have anymore the email with the steps for activation.

Thank you in advance!

Thank you Ryan!!

Hi Ryan!

 

Its been 10 days now and nobody has contacted me or sent me any link. My client couldnt wait further for his project so he has already hired me on upwork. 

Please tell me how can I proceed further as of now on his contract i have to pay 20% upeork's fees but he is my client and came to hire me on upwork on my request only. He asked me everything how to create a profile and how to hire me and then hired me. 

He is already paying 2.75% upwork fees on hiring me on upwork but i want to avail the 0% fees offer. 

Please tell how to proceed now! 

 

Thanks & Regards 

Namita. 

Please have someone contact me soon.

where can I get a personal invitation link for my client so that he can hire me on Upwork??

Hi Md Shahid,

 

Our team will send you the link over the next couple of days, thank you.

Personally I do not see the benefit.

 

Basically upwork are trying to recruit affiliates and pay nothing.

 

I can get zero upwork fees with my offline clients, without bringing them here.

 

If you had said, "bring your offline clients to Upwork and you will receive 50% of the fees your clients pay for life when they hire other freelancers" I might have considered it.

 

There's no way I bring my hard fought, offline clients onto upwork when there is no incentive for me to do so.

 

Sorry, but I'll pass on this offer, and only work with my Upwork clients through Upwork.

Hello Alan,

I have invited 4 of my non-upwork clients to join and hire me for a test project. The only benefit that I see is the pooling of funds. Those clients had to pay heavy wire-transfer fees to send small payments to me. Going forward, their small payments will get combined with my upwork.com earnings without either of us having to pay any commission to upwork.com (excet for paypal fees or credit card fees).

 

I guess upwork.com sees a benefit in getting more people onboard in terms of those people using this platform to hire other freelancers.

There may be a down-side to all this but I cannot see it right away.

Hello,The pooling of funds without paying commissions is a great idea.
Kudos to you!

Hello Namita,

First thing you need is a 'Top Rated Badge' on your upwork freelancer profile.
After, that you can simply follow the steps mentioned in this post. 

 

Hope this helps!

Thanks!

Hi Himanshu,

Thanks, yes I am a top rated freelancer. The mods and the customer support exes helped me out and I have availed the benefit of this promo.
Many Thanks to all of you!!

  • Have them hire you on a job.
  • Email BringYourClient@upwork.com with your client's name and contract ID.
  • Upwork will apply the 0% fee on your contract within 3 business days.

By now, you should have received an email with more information about this promotion. The email should include a personal invitation link you can share with clients youโ€™d like to bring onto Upwork so that they can hire you for the job. They'll see your picture, first name, and last initial after clicking. Your clients will use your link to hire you for their job.

But I he already assigned me a task at upwork... before I get the link.
You can ask him as well, that I brought him to upwork.. My contract name is
