We want you to be able to focus on doing your best work, so we keep track of your job history for you — all the information for each of your contracts, all in one place. Your Overview report includes your hourly rates and total billings on each contract. All hourly, milestone, Project Catalog, bonus, and other payments you receive will be included in your total.


What earnings will display on my profile?

The Total Earnings listed on your public-facing profile is based on your earnings as a freelancer and as part of an agency, if applicable.

We add your Total Earnings to your profile shortly after your first payment is available to be withdrawn*. Note: The payment must be for at least $1.00 USD, and it typically takes about 24 hours for your profile to be updated.

Your earnings then are updated as follows:

  • After every payment until you reach total earnings of $100 USD
  • Once you reach $100 in earnings, the total will be updated in one hundred dollar increments. For example, once you reach $200, your earnings will show as $200 until you reach $300.
  • Once you reach $1,000 in earnings, the total will be updated in one thousand dollar increments
  • Once you reach $10,000 in earnings, the total will be updated in increments of $10,000 ($20,000, $30,000, etc.)
  • Once you reach $100,000 in earnings, the total will be updated at $200,000, $300,000, etc.
  • If you hit $1 million in earnings, the total amount will be updated again at $2 million, $3 million, etc.

Keep your earnings private

As a Plus plan member, you can opt to hide your contracts' rates and total billings on your profile's work history. This will hide them from the general public and the marketplace, but not from your proposals. Once you submit a proposal or accept an invitation, that potential client will see your contracts' rates and totals on both past and active jobs. Your profile rate advertised at the top will always be visible.

For Basic plan members, it isn't possible to hide rates or earnings on your Upwork profile, but you can upgrade to a Plus plan or limit others' access to your profile. Please be aware that if you restrict your profile visibility, you will also limit the ability for clients to find you in the marketplace.

If you downgrade from a Plus plan to a Basic plan, your earnings privacy will automatically default back to public view. You can reset it to private if you choose to upgrade again.
