I’m writing to let you know about upcoming changes to our fees starting in June.
Introducing a payment processing fee to clients
To offset high payment servicing costs, we’ll start charging a fee to process your payments.
By default, a 2.75% processing fee will be charged per payment.
Alternatively, you’re eligible to pay a $25 flat monthly fee (instead of 2.75% per payment) if you pay exclusively with your bank account. If you expect to spend over $910/month, we recommend this option as you’ll save on fees.*
To learn more, visit our client pricing page.
Updating the service fee freelancers pay
The service fee that freelancers pay to Upwork will change from a flat 10% to a sliding fee per client relationship,decreasing the more the freelancer works with a client:
- 20% for the first $500 billed with the client
- 10% for lifetime billings with the client between $500.01 and $10,000
- 5% for lifetime billings with the client that exceed $10,000
When a freelancer has billed enough with a client to qualify for a lower fee, they’ll see an automatic increase in their take-home earnings. The client will pay the same rate on existing contracts.

Building a business for the long term
These pricing changes are meant to reward long-term, repeat work and cover the costs of serving all parties on our platform—allowing us to support you better over the long run.
What should you do next?
Over the next several weeks, we’ll follow up with more details on when these changes will take effect. In the meantime, review our client and freelancer pricing pages and updatedTerms of Service. Thank you for your understanding and your business.

其實你到pure leverage的網站一看，不用花多少時間，你就會發現這是多層次行銷 (multi-level marketing, 簡稱MLM)，講直白一點就是拉人賺錢的網賺。當然，要拉人賺錢，總是要給點甜頭的，pure leverage給的就是一些基本的行銷指引。
然而，以$24.95的月費來說，這樣似乎很划算，但重點是：pure leverage的商業模式並不可靠。以拉人賺錢的網賺，Joseph已經評論過很多次了，就是個網賺的美夢而已。pure leverage其實就像是另外一個empower network, 裡面會提供一些東西給你，但東西的質量堪憂。就像有使用者說：
I had first-hand experience with Pure Leverage as it is my first ever auto-responder that I’ve tried and I was totally dissapointed with their service.
It’s extremely slow, it crashes from time-to-time and the video tutorials are outdated but the most annoying part that really upsets me is their customer service.
I’ve been sending countless tickets to ask but none replied until I decided to cancel my membership and that’s when decided to reply me which shows only one thing – They’re more concerned on getting money out from you. They also will try to upsell you stuff whenever you log in which gets really annoying after some time.
Any product that has something to do with Russel and Joel Therien is a no-no. Glad to have found your review Kyle! And it’s a great one too, I hope this wards off many other people from getting tricked like me.
當兩個地方 (可以是同個國家，也可以是不同國家) 同一商品的價格出現差異，那自然出現有人願意買低賣高，從中賺取差價。台灣政府在這方面過於保守，雖然保護了民眾，但卻造成了另外一種問題：台灣許多保健品 (依美國的定義)，像是維他命，比美國來得貴！
