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!

I'm a top-rated freelancer and I want to bring my own client on Upwork and I want to know where I can find the link to share with him to register him on Upwork so I can get the benefit of 0% fee on bringing your own client on Upwork.

Only if you are top rated, which you're not.

This is wonderful! Hopefully I can bring them all here soon..

Hi Sandip,


Clients will still need to pay our payment processing fee of 3%.
I would also like to clarify that the code can be used with clients who are not signed up on Upwork to receive 0% fee on your contracts. Thank you.

Is there a way i can have this with someone i already invited before this promo?

Did your client created an account via the BYOC link? 

Where can I get invitation link to invite new client so that there is no charges from projects by the invited client?

That's awesome! Thanks for the consideration for us freelancers. Does this offer also apply to Direct Contracts or only Normal Contracts?

Hello Brandon,

 

The Bring your Own Client feature is for clients who will sign up on Upwork through your unique link and hire you on an official contract. The feature does not apply to direct contracts, thank you.
