Still 20% fee even after $500 with one client

Hi Jeremiah,

 

I would like to clarify that 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 is an example: On a $600 project with a new client, a freelancer’s service fee would be 20% on the first $500 and 10% on the remaining $100. Their earnings after fees would be $490.

 

You can check your progress towards payment milestones under Reports  Lifetime Billings by Client.

 

Please check this help article for more information. Let us know if you have further questions.

I have completed $500 benchmark. The total earning on my account is more than $1000.

 

the service fee for the other two clients is 10% but for one client it's 20%

 

That's what I am not understanding.

The $500 has to be made per client not on what you've made overall.
