Have you earned more than $500 with the same client?

This post needs to be merged. Sorry Craig, we have both asked the same thing.

No, from 5 clients, but all the contracts are fixed rate contracts.

You have to have made over $500 per client, to get the percentage down. So the first $500 is at 20% and then 10% on any amount over that.

Should I made more than 500$ with each client to get the service fees percentage down, or I need to make just 500$ with one client to get less service fees with all the rest of my clients ?

Thank you Guru Nichola L.  I realized a few minutes ago that it has to be, like you said, $500 with one client. But I was still not sure so I came here in Community Discussions to see if the question had been raised before. Your answer if very clear. Thank you. Your comment was a couple of years ago but it is still up to date. Hope you are still in Upwork to read this message.  😉

It has to be with the same client. 

 

The he fee for each new client is 20% until you reach $500. Then any work you do for that client will be %10. 

 

EDIT: Nichola beat me to it.
