Service Charges and payment

Hi,
I am new to UpWork as a freelancer. I wanted to know about service changes.
If I don't get any work, will I still be charged?
I am new to it and exploring it. I am not sure of working that much and earn more.

Also, How the payment will be managed? Please share details.

Hi Kajal,

 

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's the help article for more information. You can find more useful information and advice on the freelancer resources we have compiled here to help you get started on Upwork.
