Why upwork charge a huge amount ?

Hello,

I am a freelancer I am disappointed with the huge charge deduction by Upwork.

If I do work from the small tasks I received like pocket money.

Request to Upwork please make it 10%, please.

How can we survive in such expensive world?

Hi Meeran,

 

As a freelancer, you’ll pay a sliding fee based on your total lifetime billings with a client. Here’s how it works:

 

  • $0-$500 in earnings from a client: 20% service fee applied to earnings
  • $500.01-$10,000 in earnings from a client: 10% service fee
  • $10,000.01 or more in earnings from a client: 5% service fee

To learn more about the freelancer sliding fees, please check out this help article
