Upwork high interest
September 27, 2016 4:54pm CST
Hi guys Do you also work on upwork.com ? It's been a year since I did not work on upwork. Now I'm back I noticed the very high interest. For example if your hourly is $ 12.50 they will charge $2.50 and that means I only get $ 10.00 ? What do you think of this? Your opinion?

HI there. I've been working for Upwork for 3 months. I started out with 7 fixed price jobs and now I'm halfway in my 3-month hourly job. I get paid 7.00 a hour and have hit payout a couple of times, when I've made $100 or more dollars (minus service fee.) You did the math right. If you work more hours, you get paid more.

Yes, I'm on Upwork. Been with the site for almost a year now. The increased fee does not bother me because I charge a high rate ($25/hour) for legal documents and $15/hour for simple translation. If you get regular hourly jobs, that 20% fee decreases every week.
