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 Nehel,

This program is only for Top Rated and Rising Talent freelancers, thank you!

Hi Goran,

 

Is the offer still available? I have a client ready to get onboarded. I'm top rated too. Slightly urgent, so I'd really appreciate a quick turnaround.

 

Thanks 🙂

No.

It is only available to top rated and rising talent freelancers. You are currently neither.

I'm not TR  yet but if the 20% was cut to 10% I'd possibly be interested in this.

I remember getting an email a while back. Cannot find it now amidst all the emails.

 

Is there a link where I can contact Upwork for the same?


I contacted Customer support but the person there did not have a clue about how I proceed with having my client and my contract at 0%

 

I have my client registered and offer me a contract already.

 

Any help would be appreciated 🙂

Hi Pratik,

 

A member of our team will reach out shortly to further assist you with the link you can share with your client for our Bring Your Own Client Program.
