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.

@KristenH I'm a computer programmer, what do you do? Yeah, I'm one of the senior freelancer at upwork. But their high-interest rate is disappointing. They should give reasonable charge rate for senior freelancers. I'm not happy...

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.
