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!

If I have refer link and I'm no longer top rated then can I use that link of refer a client

You can use your profile link:
https://www.upwork.com/freelancers/~0102b0b232c30ff07c

but you upwork free will be the standard 20-10-5 one instead of 0.

Hi Dixa,


Yes, you can still use the link to invite clients. Let us know if you need further help.


Thank you.

Hi, I need to bring my client to Upwork and since I'm a Top Rated freelancer, to also skip the fees. Please contact me asap as this is urgent! Can't reach customer support anytime soon. Thank you!

You need to get your individual link from Upwork so you can send it to your client. Make sure your client does NOT sign up until they have the link because they have to sign up via that link. I'll flag your post so a moderator can have a look.

No. He wants the no fees deal. NOT direct contracts

No, I don't need the Direct Contract, That one is not useful in my case because no detailed invoice can be provided for the client.

 

Yes, I need to bring the client to Upwork but thanks to me so we can skip as many fees as possible. Thank you so much!

Hi,

I have a client from USA and do not have upwork account yet, he can make a upwork account himself but i want the account to be created using the referral link from my profile so that i can be benefited from 0 % upwork fee.

I am a top rated seller and do not know from where to get the referral link to send to the client so that he can make his account using that link.

 

Thanks

Where can I find my BYOC link?

Hi Ronick,

 

I have escalated your account information to the team so that they can get in touch with you with your personal link.

Hi there, how can I get my BYOC link?
Thanks in advance!

Just contact support on Live Chat or other means, they will provide you with a link that is unique to you and you can share that link with all your clients that you want to bring to the platform. 

 

This only works for the clients that do not have Upwork account. They will need to create an account with the link you give them.:) 

Hi Eugene,

 

We'll have someone from our team reach out to you within the next couple of days to provide your link.

 

Thanks!

Hi Andrea,

 

I have a new job for a client that I brought to Upwork recently.

This is his first job on Upwork, and working with me was why he created this account recently. I'm top-rated plus.

I would appreciate getting in touch with me, and I'll provide any needed information. We just started our hourly contract today.

 

Thanks for your help!

Hello,

 

I want to bring my own client to Upwork but I don't know where can I find my invitation link so that all of the contract I have with this client will be 0% fee.

 

And another question, the 0% fee is only for Top-rated freelancers, so  I am wondering what will happen to the contract I have with this new client? The 0% fee will still apply?

 

Thanks for your help 

Hi Pety,

 

Our team will reach out to you via ticket and email over the next couple of days and will share your unique link.
Once your client has signed up through your link you will have 0% fee on all of your contracts with the same client. Thank you.
