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 Darshan,

 

Just to confirm, are you referring to our feature "Bring your Own client" where you have 0% fee with clients who have signed up through your unique link? Thank you.

I've often wondered what the point is of bringing your private clients to Upwork. Can anyone tell me the advantages of this? Maybe I'm missing something, but to me, if it's not broke, don't fix it...?

Hi Bettye,

 

For bringing your clients to Upwork, you will enjoy the0% on all contracts you have with that client, forever. Even if you lose your Top-Rated status, youโ€™ll continue to pay a 0% fee on these contracts.

 

Here are the benefits of Bring your Own Client Program:

 

  • Peace of mind, knowing you'll get paid on time, and enjoy Upwork Payment Protection.
  • Easier project management, keeping all your work in a single spot & streamline payments and invoicing.
  • Earn more work and increase your reputation, by completing more projects you'll rise in Upwork search results.
  • Easier project management for your clients, clients will appreciate the convenience and simplicity too.

Here's the announcement for more information.

Hi, I became Top Rated, a few months ago. I had received a mail regarding "Bring your own client to Upwork". It said that I would receive an invitation link to send to the client for making an account but I never got it.
Could you please give me the link so that I can get started by bringing new clients.
Thanks.

Hi Azfar,

 

Thank you for your message.

 

I have forwarded your concern to the relevant team and they should reach you with the invite link within the next couple of days.

Only if you are top-rated, which currently you are not.

 

How can I become eligible for Upwork rising talent program?

Hi Sohrab,

 

Rising Talent status is automatically applied to users whose profiles meet all of the requirements. You can have a look at this article about Becoming Rising Talent to see what the exact requirements are that you must meet to obtain a Rising Talent badge on your profile. Once the requirements are met, you'll be invited into the program automatically and receive the badge within 48 hours.

 

Thank you!

Hi,

I am 'Rising Talent' on Upwork and I beleive this entitles me to invite a cline to the platform for me to complete a job with and have 0 FEES to pay.

 

Is that correct?

 

If so, how do I invite them and ensure the project has 0 fees, as simply sending them my Upwork profile link I AM SURE will not suffice. Thank you

Ben

Hi Bem,

 

Yes that is correct. Our team will reach out to you via ticket over the next couple of days with your unique link and detailed instructions on how to use it. Thank you.

I meet client in conference,she wants to work with me, so I suggested to her to work with me through Upwork, and she agreed.  how can I invite her to make an account and work with me??

I am using Upwork because I do not know her in personal, and I want to be sure  that I will receive my money. She is in the same country but as I said I do not know her in person, she is not my friend, and it is the first time to work with each other.

Does upwork accept that ?? And how can I invite here to make an account??

Could you please explain more, I can not understand the link you send. Could you please explain the steps??

You aren't top rated so the referral program is useless. Just ask her to create an account and invite you to a job.

Hi everyone, 

I'm a top rated freelancer and I want to invite/bring my clients to upwork. 

- Shall I still be getting 20% deduction on that contract?
- Please guide me over 0% fee thing, I'm unsure if I got it correclty?
- Where can find any link to ask him?

Note: I've asked my other clients in past to join upwork themselves and invite me for job. For those, I paid 20% deduction on contracts. So, I'm mainly concerned about my future clients.

 

Hi Hamza,

 

Your client will need to sign up using your personal link in order for the 0% fee to be applied. I've shared your request with the team and they'll be sending you the link for you to share with your clients in the next couple of days.

 

Thanks!

Hey Andrea

 

We have the rising talent badge for our agency. And we also want to add our existing clients to Upwork. Please guide and help me get those contracts routed through Upwork.
