Hi there! I work as a freelancer for my client here on upwork. Recently she wants me to do an online course and will pay half of it for me. She asks me to arrange something via Upwork for the payment. Is there anyway that I can do that?

Sure, she can pay you as a bonus. That would, however, mean that there will be the usual Upwork fee.

 

To be honest, if the client wants you to take a course, the client should really pay for the whole course, and pay you for taking it.

Yes, Petra is 100% correct.

 

If a client wants me to take an online course, he will directly pay for the course and send me the credentials. And he will pay me for my time, using an hourly contract.
