To the new Upwork mods: I mean no disrespect, but you need to read the questions and make sure you understood them before answering. Otherwise, let seasoned users take care of the answers.

ONLY work with an agreed UPWORK contract. NEVER do free work under any circumstances

I believe you did the right thing by asking for your regular hourly rate. I suspect the "test" job is the actual job, and they are using you to get it done cheap. There is nothing wrong with doing a low fee test job, but one is all I would do. The client can take it or leave it. It may not be against TOS for a client to ask for more test jobs, but it isn't against TOS for a freelancer to refuse, either. As for myself, I try to avoid the whole "test job" scenario, anyway, since I suspect most of these so-called "tests" are actually the entirety of the job. If a client can't tell if I'm the one based upon my portfolio and client feedback, then he's not putting in due diligence, anyway.
