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.
This is a very good deal. But I didn't get my personalized invitation link into my email. Could you please check that for me? Thanks in advance.
Just a great news for us.But new client never hire anybody 90% client are unverified. I think upwork need to change there 20% fee to 10% all client it's better for all.
Hi Lena E,
I did receive the notification to redeem the promotion in my account but did not recieved the email. Please send the email so I can invite the clients.
Upwork it is great site I love it, but this is my option related to this promo
"Beside the feedback you can get after complete your project and increase your rating, I dont see a a reasonable reason to bring my existing customer to upwork.
These is some of of the reasons , where I based my statement :
Why Instead of get a direct payment on my paypal or bank account, with no fees do I have to use your payment system , you charge guy 1 USD when we withdraw funds
Payments received using Paypal or Westerm union are instantaneous but when using upwork payment plataform freelancer has to wait a long verification payment process (1 or 2 weeks).
Prices for IT service are not standarized and bringing my customer here will allow my customer to know others freelancer who could do the same for the half of the price.
"We're offering 0% on fees with new clients you bring to Upwork"
i got this link.
i want to ask. is this service already applied to my profile ? Or Do i need to do something for this offering services. ? a little bit confused. Please GIve me a samll response for this. i will be very greatfull to you.
