Since you are getting paid as fee of 10% while earning, it is not justifiable to charge amount again for withdrawal. Other similar sites are not charging for withdrawals. Please encourage contractors to come to your site.

See this article. There is a 100% free option if you qualify for it but most likely the fee for using other payment terms are a result of those companies imposing a fee on oDesk in return for sending money through their system.

Also for the 100% free option I do not think 70% freelancers here on oDesk would ever qualify for that!

I think oDesk should not be charging any extra mounts for the withdrawals (if 3rd party charges are not applicable).


The idea is, the amount a freelancer earns oDesk gets its cut from that anyway. Then why should you charge us again when we are withdrawing our own share?


For example what might be the reason you are charging $4.99 for LFT to Bangladesh and Pakistan?
