Hi, I'm a top rated freelancer and I'm looking to bring a client to upwork with the 0% fee. I had received the same mail mentioned above back in June but the link that it had doesn't work now. How can I invite someone and is this still available? Thanks!

I've shared a link I've received from Upwork support to invite my new client but she is getting this message:

We can’t complete your request now
We’re experiencing an unexpected spike in traffic. Please try again later.

Can you please resend me the link to invite my client? 

Thank you in advance!

Hi Avery,

I have the same problem as Juan, can you please help me as well?

I want to invite a client, but I can't seem to find a link.

I already brought my client to upwork more then 6 months ago, and i still have active contract with him. 

Do i qualify for 0% fee in this case?

Hello Ivan,


Unfortunately, this discount only applies to any client you bring that is entirely new to Upwork. We cannot honor the 0% service fee if they already have an existing account on Upwork. Thank you.
