I've been work with oDesk for so long, but just realize something is not correct.
Currently, my work rate is $30, so with oDesk fee $3.33, it will be $33,33 that charge to Client.
For example if I've work for 20 hours, Client should pay about $666,60
What odd is, on report, it say the Service Fee is $66,66.
And when I receive the payment, I will only get $599,94.
Where it should $600.
Don't you think the service fee should be $66,60? Since the rate is $33,33.
And not $66,66.

This thread may help explain about the rounding off method oDesk is now using which they were not using previously
When you are entering the amount YOU want to receive in the boxes when applying for a job you must put in that YOU want to receive $30.00 and then you should see that the client is paying $33.00 (Odesk Fee to Client).
If you do it the other way around and quote $30 charged to the client then you will pay the Odesk Fee.
