re: "I know this is years ago and I am still searching for an answer, however, has there been any updates in "Accepting Royalties" on Upwork. Have you ever done it before? Would you ever do it? Tips for doing it. Straight talk for not doing it. Much respect and gratitude for your POV in advance!"

 

No. This hasn't changed. Upwork is not a platform for paying people with royalties. And to answer your specific question: No, I would not try to use Upwork to get paid in royalties.

 

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG in companies paying specific types of people (such as songwriters) in royalties. But Upwork is not the tool to use for that.

Hi Timothy and others,

 

I would like to clarify that jobs that offer payments in royalties are not allowed on Upwork.

I'm glad to hear this. However, I have seen many of them appear on the jobs list. I understand UpWork can't go through them all, so I will flag every job I see with this in the description.

So then are illustrators owed royalties after the product comes out? My daughter wrote a children’s book and I want to publish it but I can’t draw worth a **bleep**.

 No, unless otherwise agreed, after full payment the product belongs to the client to do with as they please. The freelancer is owed nothing further.
