I am a new freelancer.

Hello everyone!
I have a client that worked together on other platform.
But he sent offer using my email before I create Upwork account.
and then next created Upwork and did the needed stuff with help of a friend (as he have already created account a month ago)
In this case, is this a direct contract? if then, how does service fee process?
And can I receive feedback from client?
or Is this against the upwork policy?

ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Yes, upwork takes a fee, the fee they take is stated when you submit  a proposal. The upwork service fee is 20% for up to 500. 10% for 500.01 to 10,000 and 5% from 10,000 +

I would ask the client to create a job with the same agreement you have and send you an invite. After, you create the proposal the client can accept and you have a job on upwork with the terms. 

Do you mean this case is directly contract? I just wanted less fee but not sure this will work for me or not.

Hi Efraim,

Upwork doesn't do that anymore. They just take a 10% fee across all contracts.
