Regarding Upwork fees

Hi Everyone and thank you for your help.

I understood Upwork fee goes down to 10% if the amount with a client is more than 500.

Is it the total amount for a client? Or the amount has to be reach in one time?

I hope I made myself understood.

Best regards

Laura:


Yes: It is based on the total amount earned working for a single client.

 

It doesn't matter how you add up your contracts and earning to get to that amount.

Example:

Client "John" hired me to write articles.

"John" paid me $100 for each article.

Each article was set up as a separate contract.

I wrote 5 articles. This means I earned $500.00.

The fee Upwork withdrew was 20%.

 

I wrote a 6th article. The fee was 10%.

 

Because I had passed the $500 threshhold.

Hello,

I worked for a client for more than 1000$ and the fees are still 10% and not 5%.

Is that normal?

 If you meant to write $1,000, yes--fees don't drop to 5% until you reach $10,000.

 

If you reached $10,000 and your fees haven't dropped, check to see if you have actually been paid $10k. If the payment that will put you over the line is still pending, you won't see the change until it becomes available.
