0% fee when you bring your own client

Where can I find my BYOC link?  (I need it ASAP so that I can start  working on the contract from tomorrow) 

ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Hi Kamran,

 

We appreciate you bringing this up and we want to clear this up for everyone in order to avoid any confusion moving forward.

 

The Bring Your Own Client program is offered to both Freelancer Plus members and freelancers who have the Top Rated, Top Rated Plus, or Rising Talent badge.

 

Freelancers with the mentioned badges are notified via email when they first receive the badge and are informed that they can take advantage of the BYOC program.

 

Before, this was limited to these freelancers but in order to extend this perk to other freelancers, we also made it available for those subscribed to Freelancer Plus.

 

The 0% service fee only applies if the clients sign up using the unique link for the freelancers. If you have not received a personal invitation link, please email BringYourClient@upwork.com.

Hi

I am H Woods.I have a client and I want to continue working with him on UPwork.He has not joined Upwork till now. So, I want to invite him and continue working with me on Upwork.I want to ask,

1) Will he have to pay extra amount on upwork?

2) Will my earning from that specific client will be deducted?

3) what is the way to ask him to join him to Upwork, i.e. any link or anything which tells Upwork that I have asked him to join Upwork?

Thank You

I believe you need to be a top rated freelancer in order to bring your own clients.

If you get your invitation link and the client joins Upwork using that specific link, you pay no fee on all contracts with that client. The client pays the standard 3%

Hi Muhammad,

 

Just to clarify, Top Rated freelancers can still invite clients to sign up through their unique link and receive 0% fee on their contracts.
However, the 3% fee is for the client and it is applied to each payment they have made. Thank you.

Hi Kyle,

 

Looks like your team already provided your personal link for you. You should be able to access your support ticket by using this link.

Hi Bilal,

 

Please know that the Bring Your Own Client program is currently only available for Top Rated and Rising Talent freelancers. As you are not meeting these requirements, you can still send a link to your profile to your client and they can sign up for an Upwork account and hire you for a contract. You'll be paying the standard Service Fee.

Hi, can you please elaborate step by step the below statement you mention. Thanks.

you can still send a link to your profile to your client and they can sign up for an Upwork account and hire you for a contract...

Hi Maria Fe,

 

It means that the client can sign up for an Upwork account and send you an offer that you can accept and start working. The standard Service fees will apply on the contract.

 

Thank you.

Will my profile show both my job success score and earnings in this scenario?

Hello , I want to bring my client to Upwork, can you help me with the procedure? Thanks

Vukasin

Hi Vukasin,

 

Just to clarify, are you referring to receive your own unique link to invite clients outside of Upwork and have 0% fee on your contracts? Thank you.

~ Goran
Upwork

Sorry, I already recieved link thru chat support, thank you for the quick response anyway. All the best

If I am bringing my own client out of Upwork does its Jss could be counted.

Hi Rizwan,

 

Thank you for your message. Could you please confirm if your query is about circumvention? Circumvention is when a client and freelancer meet through Upwork but try to continue their relationship outside or elsewhere. The most obvious example is trying to pay or get paid outside Upwork, but also includes people trying to contact you outside the platform, through Telegram, Whatsapp, etc.

 

If so, please be reminded that It's a serious breach of our Terms of Service and may result in your account being suspended.

Hi sir 

I want to invite my client to Upwork .

How may I.

Please let me know asap

Hi Amjid,

 

Thank you for your message. Do you already have a personal link to share with your clients? If not, you can request for it by emailing BringYourClient@upwork.com for you to share with your clients outside of Upwork to avail of the 0% service fees. 

 

**Edited for more information**

 

Direct Contracts can also let you manage contracts in the Upwork platform with your clients who donโ€™t have an Upwork account. Enjoy the benefits of escrow services, simple contract management, faster payments, and dispute assistance should a problem arise.

 

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Hello,

 

I am not top-rated on Upwork but I do have a client whom I want to bring on Upwork. 

 

What benefit will I get if I invite him on Upwork?

How can I invite him?

Hi Naveed,

 

Bring Your Own Client program is currently only available for Top Rated and Rising Talent freelancers. If you are not meeting those requirements, you can still send a link to your profile to your client and they can sign up for an Upwork account and hire you for a contract. Youโ€™ll be paying standard Service Fee. Upwork Payment Protection helps give security and peace of mind to clients and freelancers working together on both hourly and fixed-price projects.

 

Thank you!

then can such freelancers get feedback from clients? will it effect JSS?

Hi Muhammad,

 

In such cases, since the freelancer and the client will only be using Upwork for payments, any Direct Contracts will not impact the freelancer's Upwork reputation metrics (for example your Job Success Score or Top Rated status). These contracts also will not be included in their other Upwork profile stats, such as total earnings, number of jobs, etc.

You can just send your client your profile url. The 0% deal is available only for top rated client and Rising Talent ones.

1. You can invite her however you like.

2. No, there is no feedback for direct contracts.

3. You pay 20% on the first $500 you bill the client. It then drops to 10%. The client pays a 3% payment processing fee.

Oh ok thanks for the info.

I spent about an hour searching for the way to invite the client and get 0% fees, and all of the Upwork customer service agents don't want to directly say the way to do this like if it's a secret or something!!!

Hi Mahmoud,

 

I can see that you already chatted with our team about your request. One of our agents will reach out to you directly with your unique link and more information about the program.
