Reduced fees (starting at 10%) after top rated

Hello dear sir/madam


I am top rated in the Upwork

So now my 10% fee should be deducted from the Upwork

Also, mind is cutting 20% fees in the last project

Let me know how Upwork is cutting fees 


Thank you

Being top rated does not reduce fees.

It does on featured jobs (only)

Hi Jignesh,


Thank you for reaching out to us. I would like to clarify that reduced fees (starting at 10%) are only for Featured Jobs. You can find more information about Top Rated status in this help article


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%


Feel free to check this help article for more information.
