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!

No. But if you make to top-rated status, you won't pay any fees on contracts with clients you bring to Upwork, provided they sign up via a special link you can get.

I was bummed to see that the “create contracts” option is limited to project pricing.

I have a client that has been referred by another and would like to book my hourly services.

Is there an easy way to set up payment and receive feedback for the gig through UpWork?

I know they could just create an account, but then I’d take the fee (at 20%?). The project pricing is only a 3.4% fee. Is there a similar way to reduce the fee for an hourly job and reward bringing a new user to UpWork?

I’ve heard rumors that hourly contracts are coming, but I’m hoping there’s an interim solution.

Thanks all!

Greetings,

 

I recently earned "Top Rated" status on Upwork and received an email stating that I could bring clients on for 0% fees, forever. I'd like to bring a client on, but I am not able to figure out how to do it so that the freelancer-client relationship qualifies for 0% fees forever. The link from the email does not seem to take me to the right place. Has this offer expired? Also, can I still do this if the client has previously been a client of mine through Upwork? 

 

Thanks!
