Hello I'm Darwin,
I am very new to Upwork and I still haven't got any jobs yet. I've sent many proposals but most of them were declined. Now I have an active proposal. It was a fixed price job of $10. But I bid $3.33 since I'm kind of desperate to get a job right now and I always got declined. So my question is:
1. If in case I got accepted will my pay be $3.33 or $10?
2. Also how will I know if I'm already on interview?
I hope you can help me with my problem. A $10 job would be a great help for me and it will be enough to pay for my school. Thanks you!
Solved! Go to Solution.
You will get only what you've placed the bid. So in this case $ 3.33
You will get a message here in Upwork message and also in your email (if you have enabled that preferrence) if the client started message you.
And are you a school student? How old are you?
A freelancer can negotiate terms during the interview and update the proposal with a new rate.
Let me also share a few other resources that you may want to check before continuing to use your account and bid on jobs. You can find valuable information in the Getting Started as a Freelancer section of the Help Center and by reading "A Freelancer's Guide to Upwork". I also suggest watching our educational videos and reading the best practice advice shared by other users:

You would get $3.33.
Then there's Upwork's 10% fee and you'll be left with $3.
Then there's the $1 / $1.99 (depending on the method chosen) withrawal fee and you'll be left with $1.
Then there are the conversation rates - USD to whatever curency - and you'll lose even more money, as if there's anything left to lose out of $1.
So you'll be left with nothing. Literally.

Because it commads me to bid between 5-100000....$
