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.
If i want to bring my own client to upwork, will he still have to pay 15% project fee? If we have a project of let's say 5k USD, will we pay 15% of total amount or roughly how much? Please reply asap, because we are waiting on this.

You are top rated so you may qualify for the "0% bring your own client" deal but ONLY if your client does NOT yet have an Upwork account and you need a special link for the client to sign up to Upwork on. If you qualify you pay no fee.
The special link is something you'll need Support to send you.
The client will still pay the 2.75% processing fee.
Unfortunately your not eligible to receive the link for this program, only Top Rated and Rising Talent freelancers are eligible. Thank you!
I would like to confirm that the link will work for all new clients. I will go ahead and share your account information with the team so that they can reach out to you with your link, and more information of the program.
Bring Your Own Client program is currently only available for Top Rated and Rising Talent freelancers. As you are not meeting those requirements, you can still send a link to your profile to your client and they can sign up for an Upwork account and hire you for a contract. You'll be paying the standard Service Fee.
I have shared your account information with the team, and they will reach out to you with your personal link, and more information about the program.
Unfortunately at the moment you`re not eligible to receive your unique link. This program is available only to Rising Talent and Top Rated freelancers. Thank you.
I want to bring my own client to Upwork and start a project with him.
I'm a rising talent, so I'm assuming that I'm eligible for 0% service fee program.
Can you please guide me through the process or share an invitation link?
I'll go ahead and share your account information with the team so that they can get in touch with you with your personal link and more information about this program.

I have a client ready for a job right now, but I would prefer to do business with this company through Upwork. They have never used Upwork before. Could I please have a link for them, otherwise I will have to do billing myself and I would prefer to have the payments show on my Upwork earnings history.
