What is Upwork’s Opt-Out Fee?

In some cases, a client and/or freelancer may opt-out of Upwork service fees by paying an opt-out fee. This fee allows you to receive and make payments outside of Upwork without violating the Upwork Terms of Service Non-Circumvention Period. Please review Section 7 of the Upwork User Agreement for details about the opt-out fee and whether it might be a good fit for you.
