Upwork Announces Simplified Flat Fee Structure of 10% for Freelancers, Driving More Demand for Their Services


Upwork, the world’s leading online marketplace for freelance talent, has announced a new and simplified flat fee structure for its freelancers. Effective May 3, 2023, Upwork’s new flat fee structure of 10% will replace the existing tiered fee structure. This new rate is designed to dramatically lower fees and drive more demand for the services of freelancers.

The new pricing is aimed at bringing more job opportunities to freelancers that translate into work they love with clients they value. Upwork is committed to helping freelancers maximize their earning potential and achieve success in the rapidly growing gig economy.

For those freelancers who are currently working on projects at the 5% level of Upwork’s existing tier structure, the company is pleased to honor those rates through the end of 2023.

In addition to the new fee structure, Upwork has recently introduced several other enhancements to its platform that make it easier for freelancers to increase their earnings. These enhancements include consultations to help freelancers land new relationships and build their reputation as an expert, talent badges to help them be discovered and win more clients, full-time opportunities for when they are ready for a different type of work engagement, availability badges to signal to clients that they are available to take on new work, certifications verified by Credly to highlight skills, and Upwork Academy, an interactive suite of courses and tools to help freelancers succeed.

Upwork is committed to the ongoing development of future enhancements that will help maximize freelancers’ earning potential. The company is proud to be a partner to its freelancers and is eager to support their success as they shape the future of work together
