Well everyone has to keep their clients on Upwork for a period of 24 months. They can pay an opt out fee, but that's more expensive than keeping them on the platform, and then you don't get escrow and all that jazz.

It is to your benefit to keep them ON upwork. If you use escrow and the time tracker, you will get your money. If you go off site, and the client disappears, you have just done all your hard work for free.

 

That says a lot about Upwork  Man Frustrated

It's becoming increasingly more common... I've heard of children being afraid to go to sleep, as they think there's an Upwork under their bed.

Hi Cathleen,

 

thank you for your response.

 

I am aware of the risks you mentioned but to be honest I am currently more afraid of upwork than of my clients.

 

Kind regards,

 Yeah, I totally agree with you on that!
