I would like to request to have the personal 0% fee link sent to my account for bringing a client to Upwork. My client wants to start working with me right away by the end of this week, and Upwork is the #1 choice for me! 

Thanks, I look forward to hearing from Upwork!

Hi Shylah,


Bring Your Own Client program is currently only available for Top Rated and Rising Talent freelancers. 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 standard Service Fee.

          May I know 2.75% fee will be charged to the client for adding funds under "Bring your own client program"?

Hi Nauman,


Yes, your client will be charged with the processing fee of 2.75% on each payment. You as a freelancer will have 0% fee on your contract, thank you.

The past week I brought a new client into Upwork, we already started a contract but I'm still getting the 20% fee on it.

How can apply the 0% fee on this contract?

Thanks for your answer, I'm not sure to which Bojan's post I should refer though.


I understand that a special link is used to refer new clients to Upwork, but I haven't got this link before. I have been top rated from months ago.


This week I started a contract with a new client that I brought into Upwork. But, as I mentioned, I didn't have any personal link.


My question:

How can apply the 0% to this contract?


Thank you,

Erick G
