What is Upwork’s revenue model?
Freelancers are charged a sliding service fee based on the total amount billed to a single customer on Upwork. Why For the first $500 you bill your client across all contracts, you pay 20%.
- 10% if your client’s total billings are between $500.01 and $10,000.
- 5% for total billings of $10,000 or more with your customer For example, if you charge a new customer $600 for an hourly or fixed-price contract, you’ll be charged 20% on the first $500 and 10% on the remaining $100.
