How do you get paid on UpWork?

Last updated on September 24, 2022 @ 9:14 pm

If you are an UpWork user, then you are likely familiar with the concept of pay-per-hour (P/H). P/H is a common payment model on UpWork, where clients pay you for each hour that you work. There are a few ways to get paid on UpWork:

1. Earn pay-per-hour commissions.

If you are an experienced professional with a high quality rating and a large client base, you may be able to earn pay-per-hour commissions. In order to qualify for commissions, you must have a minimum client base of 10 clients and a rating of 4 stars or higher.

2. Get paid through UpWork’s partner program.

UpWork partners with a variety of payment processors, so you may be able to get paid through one of these platforms.

PRO TIP: If you are thinking about becoming a freelancer on Upwork, be aware that the site uses a “payment system” in order to pay its freelancers. This system is designed to protect both the freelancer and the client, but it can be confusing and frustrating if you’re not familiar with how it works.

Here’s a quick overview: when you submit a proposal for a project, the client will choose whether to award the project to you or not. If they do award the project to you, they will also choose how much they are willing to pay for it.

Once the project is completed, the client will have 14 days to review your work and release payment. If they’re happy with your work, they will release the full amount that they agreed to pay. If they’re not happy, they can choose to release partial payment or no payment at all.

It’s important to remember that Upwork is not responsible for ensuring that clients pay their freelancers – this is something that you will need to negotiate with the client directly. If a client does not pay you for your work, you may be able to file a dispute through Upwork’s dispute resolution process.

3. Get paid through UpWork’s referral program.

If you know someone who is a good UpWork user and could benefit from using the platform, you may be able to get paid through the referral program. In order to qualify, you must have a referral rating of at least 4 stars and a client base of at least 10 clients.

Ultimately, the best way to get paid on UpWork depends on your skills and the type of work that you are offering. If you are an experienced professional, you may be able to earn pay-per-hour commissions or through the partner program.

If you are new to the platform or are offering services that are not typically paid for on UpWork, you may be able to get paid through the referral program.
