OK, I get it; I'll be charged 3.4% if I bring a new Direct Contract client onto Upwork. But all the information I can find states that the client will be charged "Low to No" fees. That doesn't cut it. Does anyone know what the actual fee would be for a client, or how it is calculated?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you, but that wasn't my question. I want to know about the "Low to No" fees charged to my client, AFTER and IN ADDITION to the 3.4% payment processing fee that I will be charged.
The cost to clients is zero. They only pay the cost of the project. Direct Contracts is a separate product from the rest of the Upwork marketplace and does not include the same features as traditional accounts. As a result, it does not cost us as much to offer and maintain, and we are able to extend those savings to you. In general, charging fees is a critical part of Upwork being able to continue to grow and bring new clients to our marketplace. With Direct Contracts, we only charge a payment processing fee because freelancers are bringing their own clients.
