A potential new client seems to think if she sets up multiple milestones with me Upwork will charge her more total. That makes no sense to me. Could it be true?
Depends if she funds them or not.
No. She probably thinks that because there is a fee for each payment, but the fee is percentage based, so it ends up the same no matter how many pieces it's in.
Percentages have a habit of getting some brains to short-circuit... we've seen the funniest questions here about that, including one who thought that after 10 payments at (the then) 10% Upwork fee she's working for free because the fee is then 100% (I kid you not)
Personally I am happy to work with one milestone forone off projects as long as it's not much over $ 1000 - but I understand why others are more comfortable when stuff's cut down into smaller bites.
