re: "Whenever I got paid. My payment has been deducted more than 20%. Why?"

 

Because you have not earned $500 yet while working for this client.


Once you have earned $500 with this client, then the fee will be reduced to 10%.

Once you earn $10,000, the fee will be reduced to 5%.

Hi Navjot,

 

As a freelancer, you’re charged a sliding fee based on your lifetime billings with each non-Enterprise client. This includes all contracts you’ve ever had with that client. Service fees are the same whether the contracts are hourly or fixed-price.

  • $0-$500: 20%
  • $500.01-$10,000: 10%
  • $10,000.01 or more: 5%

Here's the help article for more information.
