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.
Somehow I didn't receive any notification for the new ticket. Thanks for letting me know. I have received the guidelines. Appreciate your quick response.
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!
Congratulations on becoming a Top Rated freelancer!
We'll have one of our agents reach out to you directly via a support ticket with your personal link and more information about the program.
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.
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.
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.:)
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!

Did you bring the client to Upwork after knowing them off the platform previously?
Hi Mian Jawad,
We'll have one of our agents reach out to you directly via support ticket and provide your personal link.
Thanks for your interest in this program!
I'll go ahead and ask the team to reach out to you with your personal link and more information about the program. You should receive an email support ticket through this link or the email address associated with your account.
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
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.
